 to replace POSTNET barcodes.

JANUARY 28, 2013 - The USPS requires Mailers be compliant with Intelligent Mail Barcode (IMB) rules for barcoded outgoing mail and Business & Courtesy Reply mail piece contents or risk forfeiting automated postage discounts.

The USPS will continue to process reply pieces for delivery that contain either the IMB or POSTNET barcodes.

Intelligent Mail Barcode (IMB) should be used now for all new or reprinted items.

A Sample of the new barcode is shown at the top of this page. A component of the code is a Mailer ID number (MID). Whether you are wanting to establish a new permit, or migrate your existing, having a Mailer ID Number (MID) is a requirement of the process.

To obtain a MID each mailer (company) is encouraged to access the USPS Business Customer Gateway and apply for their MID at: https://gateway.usps.com/bcg/login.htm

Scroll down or Click here if you wish to learn the steps required to request a MID         (Click here for a printable PDF)

Notify The USPS when you obtain your MID, and they will gladly generate a new BRM layout for you.

Contact Omega if you'd like to further discuss.
