    Ladder barcode Cautions:  The above values are valid when using paper recommended by EPSON.  Before using the barcode, print the barcode and check the scan quality.  Ladder barcodes are subject to decreased scan quality due to missing dots or skewed ink drops. Therefore, we recommend using the fence barcode.
