The Difference between Code 128 Barcodes & Code 39 Barcodes:

Code 128 barcode:

Code 128 barcode image sample


Code 39 barcode:

Code 39 barcode image sample (Asset barcodes)

Code 39 barcodes have a low data density, and Code 128 barcodes have a very high data density. Therefore very small goods should be labelled with Code 128 barcodes if possible (not a Code 39 barcode).

Most barcode scanners can read both Code 128 barcodes & Code 39 barcode images easily, especially if the barcodes only contain numeric digits (some scanners may struggle to read barcodes that contain alphabetic letters).

Note: Code 128 barcodes and Code 39 barcodes are for internal use only. They cannot be used for products in retail stores (retail products need EAN barcodes).
