A Note About Printing With Fonts:

Implementing solutions with IDAutomation's postal fonts provides a high level of scalability with operating system, application and printer independence. Learn more about the quality of these fonts.

The postal fonts that are provided, such as OCR-A and FIM, are easy-to-use. However, barcode fonts such as Postnet and Planet require a "check-digit" calculation, which can be automatically generated with the royalty-free font tools.

IDAutomation also offers Barcode Components that print barcodes as images and automatically calculate the required check digits. These components include ActiveX Controls, .NET DLLs, ASP Components, Web Controls and Java Components, in addition to native generators for Access, Crystal Reports, JavaScript and Oracle.

Intelligent Mail (formerly OneCode) Barcode Fonts:

USPS OneCode Symbol

Intelligent Mail is the USPS implementation of the 4-State Customer Barcode type in the United States. Other implementations of the 4-State Customer Barcode exist in other countries such as RM4SCC, which are described below. The primary purpose of Intelligent Mail is to combine the zip code data of Postnet and the tracking of Planet into a single barcode symbol with additional data as described in the Intelligent Mail FAQ and Tutorial.

About OCR-A Fonts:

OCR-A fonts are used for better character recognition at post offices that have new advanced optical character recognition systems. These systems can decode the characters in the address without error because they conform to the ISO standard. One example is the OCR-A font that is used occasionally on U.S. mail with the FIM-D barcode symbol.

Font Automation & Implementation Tools:

To help users integrate barcodes into their applications, IDAutomation provides several font automation tools such as Microsoft Office Macros for Word, Excel and Access, Visual Basic, ANSI C and JAVA Source Code, ActiveX DLLs, Crystal Reports User Function Libraries (UFLs) and a check digit calculation application with Visual Basic source code as a free download for programmers and technical users. The tools automatically format the start, stop and check characters to the barcode fonts.

Testing & Verification Recommendations:

Before sending the printed barcodes to the post office, it is recommended to find some method of doing a test scan on the barcode or verify it with a POSTNET & Intelligent Mail Barcode Reader. IDAutomation offers an easy-to-use Postnet scanner that will scan and grade the bar-codes with a quality assurance test and report any possible issues. This is an example of the output that is received when scanning a barcode that was still acceptable to the post office:
