Postal Code

A postal code is a grouping of numbers and/or letters featured in a postal address to sort mail according to its destination. Also known as a postcode, post code, Eircode, PIN code, or ZIP code, a postal code can sometimes include spaces or punctuation as well. Postal code symbology is the conversion of these letters, numbers, spaces, and punctuation into a barcode format using binary coding.


Telepen was designed in 1972 in the UK to express all 128 ASCII characters without using shift characters for code switching, and using only two different widths for bars and spaces. Unlike most linear barcodes, Telepen operates on a stream of bits. Telepen does not define independent encodings for each character.
