Vision’s Edge’s BarCoder XT is an XTension for QuarkXPress 6/7/8 that creates UPC, EAN and ISBN bar codes.
You enter the bar code’s numbers, choose options such as full- or half-height bars, color, background transparency, whether to print human-readable numbers, and whether to include supplemental digits along with the basic digits.
BarCoder then creates an EPS file containing the bar code and places it into a picture box on your QuarkXPress page.
BarCoder XT costs $99.
