About Us

Computalabel International is a software house dedicated to developing and publishing barcode software for Mac and Windows. We have offices in Leicester, UK and Newburyport, MA U.S.A.

Our best-selling and award-winning barcode software, MacBarcoda, (now called MBC4) was first released in 1988 and has been providing high-quality barcode images for many thousands of well-known brands ever since. In 2008, we added the Windows equivalent, WBC4.

Our Online Barcodes service allows customers to purchase individual bar code images from our website for immediate delivery by email. We have recently launched a label printing service where customers can order small quantities (1000-10000) of barcode labels for next-day delivery. Our other products include Pharmacoder for pharmacuetical barcodes and barcode fonts for Windows and Mac.

In addition, we provide custom development of barcode and artwork systems, specialising in automated reprographics for labelling and ticketing systems. We are Solution Provider members of GS1, the global standards organisation which co-ordinates supply-chain barcoding and data exchange around the world. Our GS1 accreditation shows that we are regarded as experts in bar code technology and that we keep up-to-date with GS1 standards.

MBC4 Barcode Software for Mac


MBC4 Barcode Software for Mac

High-quality barcodes that scan first time, every time have always been vital, but there is now an ever-increasing number of bar code styles in use. Our aim at Computalabel International is to make barcode production as easy as possible.

MBC4 has all the bar coding features necessary for generating precise, accurate barcodes which always scan. Plus you get unrivalled support from the people who invented PostScript barcoding way back in 1988.

Over 200 different barcode types are supported from the most popular symbologies such as UPC, EAN, ISBN, Code128, ISSN, Code 39, ITF and QR Codes! Plus, we've just added GS1-Databar, Intelligent Mail and Code 128 Subset A!

Accuracy
MBC4 produces accurate and precise barcodes which adhere to the official guidelines for each barcode type. Barcodes can be adjusted to compensate for the printing process you are using.

Safety
MBC4 checks the data that you enter to ensure you don't produce a bad barcode. The check digit is verified and the structure is checked against the official standards. MBC4 also limits the size of your barcode so you don't break the rules.

Hundreds of Barcode Types
All popular barcode types are supported, plus hundreds of less common types so you won't be stuck when your customer asks for an obscure layout. Check out the full list on our website.

Easy Barcode Selection
MBC4's range of barcode types is divided into 12 symbologies. Clicking on one of the buttons shows a list of sub-types. The Info box displays a description of each one.

Help and Support
All customers are entitled to unlimited email and telephone support. We can check your barcode quality for free and advise on getting the best possible results from your equipment.
