A post office is a facility operated by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) which receives, processes and delivers mail. Many people have a post office box to receive mail, and post offices also sell stamps, packaging supplies and sometimes money orders. Other responsibilities of post offices, especially small ones, include providing passport applications. And, some post offices also contain local branches of federal government offices, including courts.
What is bulk mail?
Bulk mail is classified as mail that is sent out in larger quantities and at a cheaper rate than individual packages or letters would be. This type of mail is often used by businesses for advertising purposes. The reason why businesses receive lower rates for bulk mail is that they first presort the mail before the post office delivers it.
Which online services does the Post Office offer?
The postal service remains competitive in the mail and package delivery industry by keeping up with new technologies and competitive services. For example, the post office offers package pick-up services as well as printing services for businesses that wish to do bulk mailings.
Are Forever Stamps really good forever?
Yes, according to law the Forever Stamps will always be worth the current rate for sending a first class letter, whatever it may be. Even if you bought a Forever Stamp in 2011, the first year they were sold, you could still use that same stamp today to send a first class letter.
