Folder inserters eliminate an extremely labour intensive part of the mailing process. Despite their advantages it becomes necessary to add Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) marks or 2D data matrix barcodes to multi-sheet mail pieces to ensure the correct quantity is inserted into each envelope.
It is unlikely your existing in-house applications can apply OMR marks or 2D barcodes to mail pieces without modification, and off-the-shelf products such as Microsoft Word do not provide this facility. As such, the benefit of using a folder inserter is likely to be outweighed by the expense and inconvenience of updating or changing your procedures, applications and document templates.
Mail Markup is a Windows application that adds OMR marks and 2D barcodes to mail pieces quickly and conveniently. Two versions are available offering different methods of operation to satisfy any OMR or 2D barcode requirement.
