KIXfont – A font for KIX codes

The KIX code is a barcode-like format used by the Dutch PTT to encode country codes, zip codes and street numbers in a machine-readable format. If printed below the address line on bulk mailings, a discount can be obtained.

The font is distributed in format, and covers the numbers and upper-case letters.
