June DMM Update


Postal Explorer ( is your source for up-to-date mailing standards. The Domestic Mail Manual is fully searchable on Postal Explorer and features fly-out menus, cross-reference links, and an extensive subject index. Today we updated our mailing standards to capture the following changes:


Booklets: New Optional Design for Letter-Sized Booklets
We revised
201.3.0 to modify language that refers to the bound edge of a booklet as an edge and to rename the bound edge as the spine; to modify the reference to cover paper for one design format; to extend booklet design parameters; and to introduce a second folding option in the folded booklet category.


New Deflection Standards for Commercial Flat-Size Mail
We revised
301.1.0 to implement new deflection standards on commercial flat-size mail.


New Facing Identification Mark (FIM) E Pattern
We revised
708.9.0 to add a new FIM E pattern that will be used for future customized services.


Click-N-Ship Insurance Indemnity Coverage Increase—Feasibility Test Extension
We revised
709.4.0 to extend the feasibility test period that permits the purchase of domestic Click-N-Ship online insurance coverage up to $5,000.00


Labeling List Changes
We revised Labeling List(s)
L001, L002, L003, L004, L005, L007, L008, L009, L011, L201, L606, and L607 to reflect changes in mail processing operations.


Our next scheduled DMM update is July 6.
