The Postal Service has the answers to these mailing questions in two easy to use "guides" that will help you find your way.
A Consumer's Guide to Mailing.
For individual mailing needs, get a copy of A Consumer's Guide to Mailing (DMM 100). It provides helpful information on how to use the mail and is written in a simple, direct style.
Postal products and services are shown in easy to read charts and illustrations, and include real-life examples.
The guide explains how to securely pack a parcel, find a ZIP Code, calculate postage, address your mail correctly, what postal products best fit your needs and budget, and much more! A Guide to Mailing for Businesses and Organizations.
For small- and medium-volume business mailers, A Guide to Mailing for Businesses and Organizations (DMM 200) is a must-have tool. This guide helps companies understand their mailing options and provides mailing information through clear, easy-to-follow language and instructions.
New or inexperienced mailers can learn how to start a business mail program using First-Class Mail or Standard Mail.
Best of all, both guides are free and available at your local Post Office. Pick up copies and use them as the answer guides to your mailing questions. Or you can read them online and bookmark key sections for ready reference. Just go to USPS.com, search for "Guide," and pick the one that meets your needs.
