Question

How do I create f.i. an EAN 8 barcode with a SC 3 module width?

Answer

The table below shows the standard, pre-defined module widths. The font size SC 2 (enlargement factor = 1.00) corresponds to the nominal size.

Scanners are able to read barcodes with module widths differing from those in the table without any difficulty.
SCEnlargement FactorModule Width (mm)
00.8180.27
10.900.297
21.000.33
31.100.363
41.200.396
51.350.445
61.500.495
71.650.544
81.850.610
92.000.66

By changing the Bar width reduction in ArtPro to the desired magnification values, you'll create a barcode with the desired SC.
