The border option adds a 1 point (1/72 inch) border around the barcode.
Bar Width Adjustment
This option is used to compensate for printing processes that produce bars that are slightly thicker or narrower than desired. The adjustment is specified in dots, the size of which depend on the specified output device resolution. For a 600 DPI output device resolution, each dot corresponds to an adjustment of 1/600 inches. The available adjustment values are based on the output device resolution and factor; see the Basic Options section for these settings.
In some cases, the amount of width adjustment required is already known in increments of 1/1000 inches (mils). These measurements can be converted to dots using a simple calculation:
(Output Device Resolution) * (Inches of Adjustment) = (Number of Dots of Adjustment)
For example, a 2540 DPI printing process might require 2/1000 inches (2 mils) of bar width reduction. This requires the following calculation.
(2540 dots/inch) * (2/1000 inches) = (5.08 dots)
A dot is the smallest unit the printer can output and therefore is the smallest possible unit of adjustment. 5.08 dots is rounded to 5 dots, and an adjustment of "-5 dots" is used.
