ZIP codes are written in a proper manner in capital letters. ZIP codes are used to suggest the high level of efficiency in delivering the mails all over. This ensures quicker delivery of mails whenever a sender uses the specific ZIP code of a particular area. A ZIP code basically consists of 5 decimal digits in numerical form. There is also an extended code (ZIP+4) which was introduced back in 1980s. ZIP+4 includes the original 5 numerical digits.
