As of January 10, 2004, the USPS requires special services barcodes
(used in delivery confirmation and signature confirmation) to be printed in the
UCC / EAN 128 format. To assist our font users with this requirement, we have added

fonts. More information about this is documented in our Code 128 FAQ located at:

We have recently added the Telepen symbology to our .NET products which include the .NET Forms Control and the ASP.NET Server Control.

about this scanner is available at:
