Using pairs of characters, Code 39 can encode all of the 128 ASCII character set. For example, the character pair +M is used to encode lower case letter m. Our JIT series of software products does this encoding automatically (the software can also automatically add the optional check character).

If your bar codes are numeric only, have a look at using ITF.
