If you want your holiday packages and letters to be on time, remember these dates:
Some things to remember:
Confirm Addresses. Print addresses clearly and in all CAPS and be sure to include all address elements — apartment numbers, suite numbers and directional information for streets. Never guess on a Zip Code.
Choose the Right Box. Select a box that is strong enough to protect the contents. Leave space for cushioning inside. Boxes that have been used before should be given extra care when taping. Boxes weaken when they ship.
Pack Delicately. Cushion contents with shredded or rolled newspaper, bubble wrap or foam peanuts. Plain air-popped popcorn also is good for cushioning — it's inexpensive and yummy. Pack contents tightly to avoid shifting during transit. Always use tape that is designed for shipping. Do not use wrapping paper, string, masking tape, duct tape or cellophane tape
