PrecisionID USPS Postnet Barcode Font Contents
The PrecisionID Postnet Barcode Font Software includes normal and light versions (about 15% lighter) of the USPS Postnet font in Windows TrueType (TTF), Binary PostScript (PFB), and ASCII PostScript (PFA) formats. The package also contains FIM Fonts and Planet Fonts as well.

The User's Guide also includes several tutorials, explaining in step-by-step fashion, application of PrecisionID's Postnet Barcode in several common Windows applications.

In addition to the barcode fonts and User's Guide, PrecisionID's Postnet Font Package includes application examples for Microsoft Word (Mail Merge), Excel, Access, and Crystal Reports.

For other applications or languages, the source code of these modules may be used as a guide for conversion.

Postnet Barcodes
The USPS defines a few different methods of printing Postnet barcodes. The 5 digit Postnet barcode consists of a <start character>, 5 digit ZIP code, <check digit>, and <stop character>. The ZIP plus 4 Postnet barcode consists of a <start character>, 9 digit ZIP code, <check digit>, and <stop character>. The most popular Postnet barcode in use today is the DPBC Postnet barcode which consists of a <start character>, 9 digit ZIP code, two digit DPBC number, <check digit>, and <stop character>. The two DPBC numbers are usually the last two digits of the street address or PO Box number. This standard is recognized by a total bar count of 62.

FIM Barcodes
Facing Identification Mark (FIM) Barcodes are used by the USPS to sort business reply mail from other mail. The FIM barcodes consist of 4 unique barcodes for the 4 different reply mail classifications.
    1.  Courtesy Reply Mail with Pre-printed Postnet
    2.  Business Reply Mail without Pre-printed Postnet
    3.  Business Reply Mail with Pre-printed Postnet
    4.  OCR Readable Mail without Pre-printed Postnet.

Planet Barcodes
The US Postal Service recently launched Planet Barcodes to track outbound and inbound letter mail. Planet barcodes complement Postnet barcodes for use in the USPS Confirm Program. The USPS Confirm Program enables confirmation that a letter was received by a customer and enables mailers to synchronize the mail program with telemarketing programs. For more information on the USPS Planet Program, we suggest contacting your local Post Office, visit the USPS Confirm web site, and downloading this guide from the USPS.

USPS EAN128 Barcodes
Several USPS barcode standards do not use Postnet barcodes but instead use Code 128 barcodes. These are typically used for special services such as return receipts, delivery confirmations, large package routing, etc The PrecisionID C128 14 font when printed at 16 point creates the required barcode size for USPS EAN128 barcodes. The text at the bottom of the barcode must be properly formatted and printed using our OCR-A font to meet USPS specifications. For more information regarding USPS applications, see the USPS website for barcode standards.
