Note that the orientation value is a 3-digit number where, for instance, an orientation of 90 requires a value of 900.

Two tips:

- An orientation of -900 is up and down.

- You can print barcodes by installing a free barcode font like Code39 on the window machine with php installed and then selecting it as a font.
