University Print & Mail Services would like to notify faculty and staff of recent US Postal Service parcel and package changes that are effective immediately.

When preparing parcels and/or packages using the US Postal Service, you need to apply a Label 400 barcode on all affected types of mail.  If you answer “YES” to any of the questions below, a Label 400 is REQUIRED:

 

  • Is your mailpiece in a box?
  • Does your mailpiece exceed 15” long x 12” wide?
  • Is your mailpiece more than ¾” thick?
  • Is your mailpiece rigid, nonrectangular, or not uniformly thick?
  • Does your mailpiece weigh more than 13 ounces?

 

Please contact Mail Services at mailroom@csuchico.edu or X5326 with questions and to request the Label 400.
