  • Dear Editor,
    While we love seeing our customers at the post office, we also realize that your time is valuable. Next time you're thinking of visiting the post office to ship a priority or express mail package, put down your car keys and use the online post office at usps.com. Printing an online shipping label will only take a few minutes and you will not only save time and gas, you'll pay significantly less than you would at the post office, including on average 6.8 percent of priority mail. Even bigger savings are possible with express mail.
    And the savings don't stop there. When shipping online you receive free delivery confirmation service; a 75-cent value. You can also request a free pick up of your package. Submit the request by midnight and you carrier will pick up your package the next day. Won't be home? Just tell us where to find the package, such as inside the screen door.
    With Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes, you don't need to know the weight. A single postage rates applies to each size box. We'll even deliver boxes to your home or businesses at no charge by calling 1-800-610-8734 or online at usps.com/supplies.
    In addition to shipping packages through usps.com, customers can buy stamps, submit a change of address, look up a zip code, find the nearest blue collection box and more.
    When ordering stamps online or by phone at 1-800-STAMP-24 (1-800-782-6724), there is a small handling fee, usually $1.25, to prepare and ship your entire stamp order. You can skip the fee by ordering your stamps by mail. Simply request an order form from your carrier or at your post office. Our rural carriers are rolling post offices, offering many services from their vehicle.
    We look forward to serving you, whether it's online, on the phone or at the post office.
    Jolanda Cook
    Postmaster of Stark City
