A barcode printer (or bar code printer) is a computer peripheral for printing barcode labels or tags. Most consumer goods have a scan area printed with a barcode. When scanned with a barcode reader, the commodity number and price are known. Barcode printers include interface circuitry between a microprocessor of the printer and the input and output devices of the printer. The input and output devices of the printer typically include a keyboard for data entry, a printhead for printing and a motor for advancing past the printhead a supply of the material to be printed on such as labels, tags, etc. In the bar code printing system, a number of heating elements are arrayed at a specified pitch on a line thermal head. Ink on a thermal transfer ink ribbon is transferred onto such a material as label paper by selectively heating some of the heating elements to print a bar code comprising a number of bars. Barcode label printers use a static random access memory to store information, such as programmable software routines and/or programmable font and format data which is necessary for the intended operation of the label printer. A bar code may be directly printed on the packing material of the commodity. Alternatively, the barcode can be printed on a label and then adhered to the commodity.
