M032 Barcoded Labels

Summary

M032 describes the basic standards for barcoded labels on trays and sacks including the destination line (Line 1), content line (Line 2), and origin line (Line 3) for tray and sack labels. It lists the 3-digit content identifier number (CIN) that must be used. It also covers the specifications for barcoded tray and sack labels.

1.0 Basic StandardsTray and Sack Labels

1.1Use

[11-14-02] Exhibit 1.1 shows the types of mail requiring barcoded tray or sack labels. Barcoded labels must meet these general standards:

a. Barcoded tray labels and sack labels must not be interchanged. Tray labels must be used only for trays, and sack labels must be used only for sacks.

b. Mailer-produced barcoded labels must meet the standards in M032.

c. All information on barcoded labels must be machine-printed. Alterations to preprinted barcoded labels (e.g., handwritten changes) may not be made.

d. Barcoded labels must be inserted completely into the label holder on the tray or sack to prevent their loss during transport and processing.

1.2Destination Line (Line 1)

The destination line must meet these standards:

a. Placement. The destination line must be the top line of the label, placed in the position shown in Exhibit 1.2a or Exhibit 1.2b (above the barcode on tray labels and to the right of the barcode on sack labels). An exception is that one line of extraneous information may appear above the destination line on tray and sack labels as provided in 2.2f and 3.2f. The destination line must be completely visible when placed in the label holder. This visibility is ensured if the destination line is no less than 1/8 (0.125) inch below the top of the label when the label is cut and prepared.

Shows acceptable formats for barcoded tray labels.
 

 

Exhibit 1.2bBarcoded Sack Labels

 

 

Shows acceptable formats for barcoded sack labels.
 

b. Information. The destination line must contain only the information required by the applicable standards for the class, processing category, sortation level of the tray or sack, and the rates claimed. This information is contained in module L labeling lists for all sortation and rate levels except trays and sacks to carrier route, 5-digit carrier routes, merged 5-digit, and 5-digit destinations, and except for automation letter trays to 5-digit scheme destinations. For the destination line of carrier route, 5-digit carrier routes, merged 5-digit, and 5-digit trays and sacks, the city, two-letter state abbreviation, and 5-digit ZIP Code of the destination 5-digit ZIP Code area must be shown. For 5-digit scheme trays, the city, two-letter state abbreviation, and ZIP Code for the destination scheme must be obtained from the City State Product. The destination line may contain abbreviated city and state information if such abbreviations are those in the City State Product or in Publication 65, National Five-Digit ZIP Code and Post Office Directory.

c. Military Destinations. On carrier route, 5-digit carrier routes, and 5-digit trays and sacks and on merged 5-digit sacks, the destination 5-digit ZIP Code of the mail contained in the tray or sack must be preceded by “APO” or “FPO,” as applicable, and “AE” (for 090-098 ZIP Codes), “AA” (for 340 ZIP Codes), or “AP” (for 962-966 ZIP Codes).

1.3Content Line (Line 2)

The content line must meet these standards:

a. General. The content line must appear directly below the destination line as shown in Exhibit 1.2a or Exhibit 1.2b. This line must show the class, processing category, and the sortation level of the tray or sack as required by the applicable standards for the mailing in module M. The appropriate content identifier number (CIN) in Exhibit 1.3 that corresponds to that content line must be used in the barcode.

b. [3-6-03] Periodicals. Except as provided in M045.8.0 for copalletized mailings and in M230.2.0 for combined mailings, Periodicals publications must use one of the following for Line 2 class information:

(1) “PER.”

(2) “NEWS” if published weekly or more often or if authorized newspaper treatment as of March 1, 1984.

c. Additional Information. For 3-digit scheme trays as specified by the labeling list, the content line for some destinations must be followed by the letter “A,” “B,” or “C,” which is not required to be right-justified. For carrier route trays and sacks, the content information must be followed by a one-letter carrier route type description followed by a space and a 3-digit route number for the route to which the tray is destined.

1.4Origin Line (Line 3)

[6-12-03] The origin line must appear below the content line in a location appropriate for a tray or sack as shown in Exhibit 1.2a or Exhibit 1.2b. This line must show the city and state of the entry post office or the mailer’s name and the city and state of the mailer’s location. It is recommended that the mailer’s name also appear with the city and state of the entry post office. The origin line may contain abbreviated city and state information if such abbreviations are those in the USPS City State Product or in Publication 65, National Five-Digit ZIP Code and Post Office Directory. A mailer code assigned by the USPS or such words as “Mailer,” “From” (or “FR”), or “Entered at” may appear before the required information on this line.

The corresponding ZIP Code must have a minimum character height of 0.190 inch and a maximum character density of 10 characters per inch. The destination line must accommodate at least 21 characters for the destination city and state and any required prefixes, and 5 characters for the ZIP Code. Only the correct 3-digit ZIP Code prefix is to be printed when the required labeling for a tray includes only a 3-digit ZIP Code prefix for Line 1 (i.e., trailing zeros are not permitted).

c. Content Line (Line 2). The printed content line must have a minimum character height of 0.120 inch. The content line must accommodate at least 21 characters and have an effective font density of no greater than 17 characters per inch.

d. Origin Line (Line 3). The printed origin line must have a maximum character height of 0.085 inch and must accommodate at least 21 characters.

e. Barcode Numeric Line. The barcode numeric line must consist of a numeric representation of the information contained in the barcode as required by 2.4b (5-digit ZIP Code, CIN, processing code). The printed numeric barcode line must have a maximum character height of 0.085 inch, must accommodate 10 characters, and must be placed below the barcode and lower barcode quiet zone as shown in Exhibit 1.2a.

f. Extraneous Information Lines. Extraneous information may be printed only at the top of the label and/or at the bottom of the label. The preferred location is the bottom of the label. If placed at the bottom of the label, the information must appear only in a rectangular area that begins 1.620 inches from the top of the label and extends to the bottom of the label. Within this lower area, the information may extend 2.75 inches to the right from the left edge of the label. See Exhibit 2.2f. Extraneous information at the bottom of the label must appear below the barcode numeric and origin lines. There are no font restrictions for information printed in this area at the bottom of the label with one exception: if information in this area resembles a day of the week or a USPS air stop code it must be in 10-point or smaller type. Extraneous information printed at the top of the label must have a maximum character height of 0.083 inch. Barcodes for a mailer’s internal use may not be placed in extraneous information areas or anywhere else on the label, unless approved on a case-by-case test basis by USPS Engineering (see G043 for address).

2.3Zebra Code

The zebra code is a series of diagonal or vertical marks to the right of the barcode that serves as a visual indication that a tray contains automation rate mail. The diagonal or vertical marks must each be from 0.25 to 0.375 inch high, and from 0.125 to 0.25 inch wide, separated by blank spaces equal in size to the diagonal or vertical marks. The zebra code is required on tray labels in automation rate mailings; it is not required on co-trayed automation and Presorted rate mailings. The zebra code must not appear on tray labels for nonautomation rate mail.

(2) The applicable 3-digit content identifier number (CIN) for the tray as shown in Exhibit 1.3.

(3) [7-10-03] [11-14-02] The applicable 2-digit USPS processing code:
(a) Code “01” is used for all automation rate and machinable letter-size pieces, for First-Class Mail automation rate flat-size pieces, and for First-Class Mail co-trayed automation rate and Presorted rate flat-size pieces. Code “01” is used also for certain Standard Mail flat-size pieces prepared in letter trays under M033: Standard Mail automation rate flat-size pieces and Standard Mail co-trayed automation rate and Presorted rate flat-size pieces. (b) Code “07” is used for all other mail (e.g., manual and nonmachinable letter-size pieces). Code “07” is also used for certain Standard Mail flat-size pieces prepared in letter trays under M033: Enhanced Carrier Route Standard Mail nonautomation rate and Standard Mail Presorted rate.

c. Placement. The barcode must be on the left side of the tray label, below the destination and content lines. The top of the barcode must be not less than 0.6 inch from the top of the label. The bottom of the barcode must be no more than 1.5 inches from the top of the label. The barcode must not extend more than 2.0 inches to the right from the left edge of the label.

d. Quiet Zones. Two quiet zones (clear areas) must be maintained, one to the left and one to the right of the barcode, each measuring at least 10 times the X dimension (see 2.4f) and extending the full height of the barcode.

The quiet zones must meet the space reflectance specification in 2.4i.

e. Height. The height of the barcode must be from 0.65 to 0.75 inch.

f. X Dimension. The width of the narrow bar element and narrow space element is defined as the X dimension. It must be selected as a single dimension and it must be uniform within the barcode. The minimum X dimension or narrow element width is 0.012 inch and the maximum is 0.016 inch. The optimum X dimension or narrow bar/space width is 0.015 inch.

g. Wide-to-Narrow Bar Ratio. The wide-to-narrow ratio for bars and spaces within the barcode must be between 3 to 1 and 2.3 to 1 and uniform within the barcode. The optimum ratio is 3 to 1.

h. Printing Tolerances. The maximum irregularity in the edge straightness of any bar element is 0.3 times the X dimension. The printing tolerance for any (narrow or wide) bar or space is +0.004 inch and is not cumulative. Example 1: If an X dimension of 0.015 inch is selected, each individual narrow bar or narrow space element on the printing of the barcode must not be less than 0.011 inch or more than 0.019 inch. Example 2: If the wide bar/space dimension of 0.045 inch is selected, each individual wide bar or space must not be less than 0.041 inch or more than 0.049 inch.

i. Reflectance. When measured at 633 nanometers, bar reflectance must be less than 30% and space reflectance must be more than 40%. The bar-to-space reflectance difference must be more than 40%.
