EAN SC SizesEAN 13 sizes are standardized - the module width (i.e. the width of a narrow bar) and height are only allowed to vary within certain limits. The default, or 100%, size is called SC2, resulting in a code that is roughly 26mm high and 35mm wide. It is permitted to vary the width down to a minimum size of 81% and a maximum size of 200%.
In addition it is permitted to reduce the height to some degree, this is also known as EAN height truncation. The minimum height of an EAN should not go below 8-10mm.
