PostNet, FIM & Planet Code Bar Code Fonts

InPath Barcode Fonts are a powerful bar code utility that seamlessly integrates with your software and database applications. This is the easiest and fastest way to create bar code labels


PostNet was developed by the United States Postal Service (USPS) to allow faster sorting and routing of mail. Postnet is the familiar, funny-looking barcodes often printed on envelopes and business return mail.

Unlike most other barcodes in which data is encoded in the width of the bars and spaces, PostNet actually encodes data in the height of the bars. That is why when you look at the barcode all the bars are essentially the same width but vary only in height.

The barcode itself can encode either a standard 5-digit Zip Code, a Zip+4 code, or a full 11-point delivery point code.

The 5-Digit zip code and Zip+4 code are familiar to virtually anyone who lives in the United States. All addresses include, at a minimum, a 5-digit zip code (example 80122). If all you have to work with is this 5-digit code, it may be encoded in PostNet symbology. If you have the full Zip+4 code (example 80122-1905), the entire 9-digit code may also be encoded in Postnet.

A lesser known coding mechanism is a "Delivery Point Code" which is used to identify all 125 million delivery points in the United States. The Delivery Point Code is a normal Zip+4 code plus an additional 2 digits of information. The two additional digits are normally made up of the last two digits of the street address or PO Box. For example, if your zip code is "80122-2014" and your street address is "3801 E. Arapahoe Road", your Delivery Point Code would be 80122-2014-01. The final "01" is taken from the last two digits of the 3801 street address.

PostNet barcodes, thus, encode either 5, 9, or 11 digits of information. Any other number of digits is invalid.
