To quickly direct your mail to its destination, the Postal Service processing equipment must be able to locate the address and read it. The automatic equipment will be looking for the delivery address within an imaginary rectangle on each mailpiece. This imaginary rectangle should be located on the mailpiece as follows:
|Sides of the rectangle||1/2" from the right and left edge|
|Bottom of the rectangle||5/8" up from the bottom edge|
|Top of the rectangle||2-3/4" up from the bottom edge|

Compliance with the above guidelines will assure that your mailing will arrive on time and on budget.
