Good blog post with tips on mailing smarter.  An excerpt:

“Be smart: use the intelligent mail barcode. Use the additional space made available when you mail with the new 31-digit Intelligent Mail Barcode. Because the new technology eliminates some of the codes and marks the Postal Service has required, you get a cleaner address block with more space for marketing messages. The advanced barcode offers several other advantages, too, including the ability to identify and track individual pieces of a direct mail offer, as well as receive electronic address update information automatically. And better tracking means fewer undeliverables, which reduces waste and saves money.”
