    Question for the forum.

    When creating 1D barcodes, which Module value works best?

    I am experimenting around and found the following but am looking for others to reply as to what they are having success with (using Code128).

    Stretch = Not liking this as it fills the entire container and is resulting in difficult to read barcodes as the bars become to wide.

    1pt = Seems to look correct, but I am finding it troublesome to scan with inexpensive readers.

    1px = Seems to look correct, seems to scan ok...but can be troublesome sometimes.


    So what are the recommend settings to use to ensure a good consistent read?

    I am developing labels to go on products and they need to be able to scan properly the first time everytime.
