For more information, read the USPS’ final rules at http://pe.usps.com/FederalRegisterNotices.asp (“New Address Requirements for Automation, Presorted, and Carrier Route Flat-Size Mail”). There are some illustrations included in this notice, but they’re not always easy to understand. It’s likely the USPS will prepare more user-friendly tools over the next 10 months. What’s more, I expect that plenty of industry groups and service providers will offer seminars, webinars and podcasts to explain the new requirements and changes that companies need to make.
