Sorry, never been able to find a free one. I've found that (like you said in your question) the barcode fonts that ARE free tend not to meet strict standards, so it's hit or miss if you gun will read them consistently.

Not to plug a company, but we bought ours from Elfring Fonts for about $130, never had a problem with our own guns or the guns of the people we ship to.

Good luck!

This page has links to barcode fonts that work with Crystal.  About halfway down

Right here!


Now, how reliable this is is another story, but at least it's free! I'd do some serious testing of it.

Nice grab, mlmcc!
