GROUP Q – Digital franks with 2D barcode[edit]

Click here to return to the United States Postage Meter Stamp Catalog

  • Digital meter stamps with 2-dimensional barcode first came into use in 2000 when Neopost released their IJ model series in the U.S. Pitney Bowes followed in 2002 with the release of a new series of stamps from their DM series models. Francotyp-Postalia and new meter company Data-Pac followed later in the decade.
  • All the stamps in this Group include a 2-dimensional barcode. The earlier stamps contained a "Datamatrix" barcode which is square in shape. Later stamps have the more compact "IBI Lite" barcode which is a rectangle longer in one direction than the other. The Datamatrix barcode can vary in size, and the IBI Lite barcode is found both vertical and horizontal.
