with latex->dvips->ps2pdf  you'll get a pdf file with the
bounding box of (-5mm,-3mm)(1.5in,1in)

running the file with the script ps4pdf <file> you'll
get a letter sized pdf with the barcode

alternative run (it is what the script ps4pdf does)

latex <file.tex>
dvips -Ppdf -o <file-pics.ps> <file.dvi>
ps2pdf -dAutoRotatePages=/None <file-pics.ps> <file-pics.pdf>
pdflatex <file.tex>
