Barcodes for bulk mailing:
Smart Barcoder software creates accurate Intelligent Mail barcodes (IMBs) for use on Marketing Mail bulk mail, Presorted First Class, Periodical Class and Bound Printed Matter.

It's easy. You don't need to know "service codes" or any of those other confusing things that USPS told you about. Just give Smart Barcoder a file with zip+4 and delivery point codes and it will convert them to accurate Intelligent Mail Barcodes for bulk mailing.

Smart Barcoder is certified by the USPS to meet the "unique serial number" requirement for Full-Service IMB mailings. Unique serials are automatically created either per piece or per mailing, at your choice.

Barcodes for single-piece First Class mail:
Type in a zip code to create a barcode for a single piece of outgoing First Class mail, so you can take advantage of USPS "Informed Visibility" tracking (sign-up with USPS required). Print the barcode directly onto your envelope, or copy and paste it into a layout.

Barcodes for reply mail:
Add reply mail barcodes to an entire mailing list file at once, or type in an individual reply zip code to create reply mail barcodes one at a time.

Smart Barcoder supports reply mail options including Informed Visibility tracing, MID-based tracking, and the new USPS programs for tracking political mail and election ballot mail.

Barcoded Tray/Sack Tags and Pallet Labels:
Smart Barcoder prints Intelligent Mail tray and sack tags for more than 40 categories of letters, flats and parcels. You can print up to 10 tags per page on standard business card sheets (Avery #8371 or similar). All tags have been updated with the most current USPS content lines. And, Smart Barcoder also prints Intelligent Mail pallet labels.
