Mail Tips

Mail Tips

Addressing Outgoing Mail

When addressing outgoing mail, the return address should look as follows:

Department Building Room #
PO Box
City,State, Zip Code

Addressing Inter-institutional Mail

Building Code
Room Number
  • Use inter-institutional envelopes for on campus mail and business envelopes for off campus mail. To avoid delays in delivery, keep inter-institutional mail separate from metered mail and secure all bundles with a rubber band.
  • Use postcards for short messages or announcements; it is one-third less expensive than sending an envelope.
  • Use green diamond boarded envelopes for first class mail.
  • Combine mailings to the same location into one large envelope.
  • Use priority mail rather than express when two day delivery is acceptable.
  • Fold multi-page material and send it in a #10 envelope to save the extra weight and postage of a large flat.
  • Use “Certified” instead of “Registered” mail whenever possible as it costs less and still provides a receipt and notice of delivery.
  • Do not over insure; the post office will only pay the actual value of an item, not the declared value.
  • Request library and book rate as much as possible.
