Postal Service Advice for Holiday Shipping

The U.S. Postal Service expects to deliver 20 billion letters, packages and cards between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.

In order to make sure holiday mailing runs smoothly, the postal service outlined some tips for the upcoming season.

  • To ensure delivery by the holiday, they say all packages should be mailed by December 13th and all cards by December 18th.

  • Make sure your package is in a strong box sealed with packing tape.

  • Place the mailing address inside the package as well as outside.

    The postal service also unveiled their holiday stamps, which feature actual photographs of four different snowflakes.
