New Mailing Regulations

It has come to our attention that there will be new regulations for tabbed mail being processed through the post office. Two tabs must be applied to the mailing, each placed one inch from the top edge and not interfering with postage, in order to make them machinable. If they do not match the regulation, a non-machinable surcharge will be applied. The diagram below illustrates where tabs should be applied. 

We are happy to help by adding the tabs in the correct place and save you from the surcharge!
