New USPS Address Standards Proposed

Two proposals outlined in today’s Federal Register, comment period through 12/10/07:

The first proposal has to do with new address placement and formatting requirements, and an 11-digit POSTNET or Intelligent Mail barcode required on all automation-rate pieces.

The second proposal, specific to letters, has new spacing and type size requirements for addressing.

It is very important that mailers review and comment on these proposed specifications.

Best wishes,
