     57   * Zipcodes can cross administrative region boundaries. They don't cross state boundaries, but do cross county boundaries. (For the population centers project, when we found a zipcode that spanned admin regions, we partitioned the zipcode -- made one location record for each partition. Names were qualified with the parent region.)
    5258   * Zipcode regions are not technically polygons but rather groups of addresses.
    5359   * Zipcodes have a prefix hierarchy.

They allow looking up data in batches here http://www.zip-codes.com/search.asp, but would need to copy & paste the table part of the page into a file (not the html, just select the rows in the rendered page). Caution: We do not want to use copyrighted or proprietary material w/o the requisite payment or attribution. Could contact them and inquire about temporary use of the information.
