The most rmportant thing to
crnsider in mailing Christmas
gifts is preparing and addressing
The first step in mailing a
Christmas package is a check with
the local post office to find out
about size and weight restrictions.
At the same time, the zip code of
the address should be looked up
Carefully wrapping the gift is
very important. Heavy brown pa-
per and twine should be used to
insure a 'secure package. If neces-
sary, clearly indicate on the, out-
side that the contents are fragile
or perishable. A letter may be in-
cluded if the correct postage is
paid and the package is marked
as containing a letter.
After the package is wrapped,
write the address clearly on the
outside. If you're not sure of the
address, check it in the phone
book. Be careful, though; merely
because a city is grouped under
a general heading in a telephone
directory does not mean it will be
under the same heading with the
United States Post Office. Be sure
to check all uncertain addresses
with your local post office before
mailing your Christmas ackages,
Missing packages should be
checked with the post offices to
which they were addressed. Do not
conslut your local post office be-
cause they don't keep records of
packages sent from there.
A last general rule about Christ-
mas packages: if in doubt, phone
your local post office. It is mheir
business to know how the ~mail is
run, and they will be more than
happy to assist you with your
Checking with the post office
