The Encapsulated PostScript Format (EPS) graphic image file is one of the most widely used desktop publishing file formats for all kinds of images from photographs to logotypes to bar codes - and is compatible with almost all PostScript-based publishing and graphics composition software for both Macintosh and Windows systems. With a proper initial evaluation, routine precautions and appropriate equipment -- most importantly, an imaging device set to at least 2400 dots per inch - high-quality bar code symbols can be produced. However, since the output quality of any EPS graphic is also only as good as the software which created the image, care must be exercised to ensure the EPS file has been created accurately. Not all EPS bar code suppliers (or inexpensive off-the-shelf bar code software packages) use appropriate algorithms to minimize bar width rounding and other kinds of errors. Thus the need to work with an experienced and competent EPS bar code supplier, especially in a situation where there may be no final bar code verification process at the printer prior to printing.
