Interleaved 2 of 5 Barcode Format

Interleaved 2 of 5 barcodes were developed from an earlier code simply known as Code 2 of 5. It is a shorter version of that code, and is used widely in the shipping and storage industries. The barcodes are also used to mark film canisters.

Interleaved 2 of 5 barcodes are composed of:

Checksums are not required.

Only an even number of digits can be encoded on an Interleaved 2 of 5 bar code. The code is referred to as “interleaved” because data is encoded both in the colored bars and the white spaces between the bars. This allows users to encode a greater amount of data in a smaller space.

ITF-14 code can also be created using the Interleaved 2 of 5 coding process.

Standard Interleaved 2 of 5 features that are supported by the Barcode Generator include:

Need to export your Interleaved 2 of 5 barcode as a PNG or TIFF file, or to drag your code into Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator? The Barcode Software can do all of these tasks, with print-quality dots-per-inch resolution.
