|New postal addressing requirements will go in effect soon|
The U.S. Postal Service has a new addressing requirement for flat-size (items that are larger than 6.125” in height or 11.5” in length or .25” thick, such as large envelopes, booklets, catalogs) bulk and periodical mail, effective March 29, 2009. The requirement states that the address must be placed on the “top half” of the mail piece. The top half of a catalog or booklet is determined by having the bound edge of the item on the right side as the address is viewed. For large envelopes addressed in a “landscape” orientation, the address should be offset to the right side of the envelope. In the “portrait” orientation, the address would be on the top half. The postage and return address would be put in relation to the address as it is currently. Please call 777-2279 for more information or visit Campus Postal Services Web page regarding bulk mail.
