HP INTRODUCES NEW UPC FONT PRODUCTS FOR LASERJET PRINTERS.

Hewlett-Packard Company (www.hp.com) has debuted a new set of font products that create UPC and EAN bar codes targeted at LaserJet printer owners.

HP's new font DIMMs, SIMMs, and TrueType fonts on a disk mean that any LaserJet 4, 5, and 6 Family, and LaserJet 4000 and 8000 printer customer can create high-quality bar codes from within their Windows and non-Windows applications.

HP's UPC & EAN bar code products are based on Azalea Software, Inc.'s innovative bar code font technology licensed to HP. Azalea is the premier bar code and OCR font publisher and includes Agfa, International Typeface Corp., Monotype, and others among their font distributors in addition to Hewlett-Packard.

The font DIMM's will work with the new LaserJet 4000 and 8000 lines. The font SIMM's will work with LaserJet 4, 5, and 6 printers. These font products are available now directly from HP's Solutions Group at 541/715-5757. A disk accompanying the UPC/EAN hardware add-on includes utilities, sample code, and complete online documentation.

"Azalea Software and Hewlett-Packard are both committed to expanding HP's line of printer-based fonts for HP LaserJet printers. By using these hardware add-ons, LaserJet users can integrate high-quality bar code printing into all of their projects," says Jerry Whiting, President and CEO of Azalea Software, Inc. "We're excited to have our UPCTools font collection added to HP's catalog."

Founded in 1992, Azalea Software is a digital type foundry specializing in bar code and OCR fonts. Their products are available for Microsoft Windows, the Macintosh, UNIX, and other platforms in both TrueType and Type 1 format. Bar codes are used extensively on retail packages, shipping labels, ID cards, and forms.

Sherwin-Williams, Time-Life, Paramount Pictures, Harley-Davidson, Barnes & Noble, and General Motors are among Azalea's customers. Azalea publishes the Barcode FAQ (frequently asked questions), available on the Internet (www.azalea.com/faq.html).

Azalea Software also publishes a number of encryption and cryptography toolkits for software developers (www.encryption.com). Privately held, Azalea Software is located in Seattle WA.
