How can I print barcodes on my invoices?

Are you looking to print your barcodes straight onto your invoice? This can be helpful if you want to make picking items from your inventory even easier! As long as you install a barcode font on your computer, you can set up a Custom Doc template to print barcode labels for products listed in a sales order or purchase order!

You’ll need to add the “ItemBarCode” field into the Custom Doc template, and set the template layout to fit your label papers. You can test how it works by opening the sample order template, and changing the Description column to show Barcode instead. Simply change the column heading and then right click on the “ItemDescription” field to select “Edit Field”:

Then, change the Field name to ItemBarCode, and repeat this for each row of the template:

Next, select and change the barcode fields to use the barcode font:

Once the template is saved and imported back into inFlow from the Print Settings, you can test it by generating this Custom Invoice with sales order items that have barcodes:

If you don’t already have a barcode font installed on your computer, you can search and download a free barcode font from the Internet, for example the Free Archon Code 39 Barcode Font available on
