Can your products create IPA or ISAL barcodes? If so, what barcode type creates it?

The USPS is establishing a regulation requiring customers to apply a barcode to sack labels for certain categories of international mail. I need to find out what barcodes product can create the International Priority Airmail (IPA)/International Surface Air Lift (ISAL) Direct Country Sack/Tray Barcode.

The IPS (International Priority Airmail) and ISAL (International Surface Air Lift) barcode is created using the Code 128 Barcode symbology.

As of 9.7.2012, it requires an XDimension (width of the narrow bars) of .010 (.015 preferred) and a minimum barcode height of 0.5 inches.

It is a 24 digit barcode that includes:

Mailer Permit Number
The mailer permit number is a 10 digit numeric value.

I= IPA With Customs Forms;
