Is my printer compatible with the new USPS Intelligent Mail Barcode?

Published: May 31, 2009

If your printer uses an older print head cartridge like the HP26A then NO it is not compatible!

Here ia a short list of popular printers that will not be able to print the new Intelligent Mail barcode (formerly known as the 4-State Customer Barcode)

Rena

  • DA-600
  • DA-590
  • DA-606

Bryce

  • 3K
  • 5K
  • 7K
  • 10K
  • 12K
  • 16K
  • 20K

Pitney Bowes

  • W700
  • W650
  • W770

Why can’t it!?

Simple, the long bars are taller that the 26A print cartridge can print in 1 pass.  Therefor it would need to print the top 1/2 then come back and print the bottom 1/2.  The likelyhood of the the 2 halves matching up the way they should is not good!
