Sack Preparation Changes for Periodicals Mail

 

We published a notice in today’s Federal Register to adopt new mailing standards for Periodicals mail prepared in sacks. The standards include two new types of sacks — a 3-digit carrier routes sack and a merged 3-digit sack — and a new minimum of 24 pieces for most other sacks. The new preparation will help control costs and keep prices reasonable. The new standards are effective May 11, 2006.
