Determining the Postal Zone
at many places of interest, motels, hotels, drugstores, and, of course, they are abundantly available at ports that your ship will visit overseas.   The paper or card stock used for single and double postcards may be of any light color that does not prevent legible addresses and postmarks from being placed thereon.  Cards with brilliant colors must not be used.  Single postcards and each  part  of  double  postcards  must  conform  to  the following specifications to qualify for mailing at the card rate:    Postcards must not be smaller than 3 l/2 by 5 inches  nor  larger  than  the  size  fixed  by  the Convention  of  the  Universal  Postal  Union  in effect (currently 4 l/4 by 6 inches).    Postcards must be rectangular in shape.    A  postcard  must  be  made  of  an  unfolded  and uncreased  piece  of  paper  or  card  stock  of approximately  the  quality  and  weight  of  a stamped  card.   The thickness  must be uniform and not less than 0.007 of an inch thick. Use of Double- and Single-Stamped Cards and Postcards The users of double- and single-stamped cards and postcards must comply with the following rules:    Double  cards  must  be  folded  before  mailing. The first half must be detached when the reply half is mailed for return.    The reply half on a double card must be used for reply  purposes  only. It  must  not  be  used  to convey a message to the original addressee of the double card nor to send statements of account.    Double  cards  must  be  prepared  so  that  the address on the reply half is on the inside when the double card is mailed.    Plain  stickers,  or  seals,  or  a  single-wire  stitch may be used to fasten the edges of double cards only if affixed so that the inner surfaces of the cards can be readily examined.    Enclosures in double cards are prohibited.    Cards  bearing  attachments  are  not  mailable  at the stamped card rate of postage.  Labels affixed by adhesive to show the address and the return address are permitted.    The face of the card must be divided vertically into a right side and a left side, with or without a vertical rule.  The left portion is to be used for the return  address,  and  the  right  portion  for  the address, postage, and postal endorsements.   (A space of at least 2 l/8 inches wide measured from the right edge of the card must be reserved.)    Stamped cards and postcards that have holes or vertical  tearing  guides  are  mailable  only  if  the holes  and  tearing  guides  do  not  result  in  the elimination  of  any  letters  or  numbers  in  the address. Matter in the form of a single or double card, but does not conform to the specifications for a single or double postcard as stated above, should not be mailed at the card rate.  These cards are subject to postage at the First-Class rate. FIRST-CLASS ZONE RATED (PRIORITY) MAIL Zone  rated  mail  consists  of  First-Class  Mail weighing  more  than  l3  ounces  and  is  referred  to  as priority mail.   Priority mail provides the fastest mail service  for  heavy  articles  (with  the  exception  of Express Mail).  Any class of mail can be mailed at the priority rate of postage, if the customer is willing to pay for this service. WEIGHT AND SIZE LIMITS At the time you accept an article for mailing, you must determine whether or not it meets the weight and size limitations.   Articles mailed at the First-Class or priority rate of postage must not exceed 70 pounds in weight and 108 inches in length and girth combined. Remember   that   First-Class   rates   are   computed differently for articles weighing l3 ounces or less and for those zone rated articles weighing over l3 ounces. POSTAL ZONES First-Class   zone   rated   (priority)   rates   are computed on the basis of weight of the individual piece and  the  distance  it  must  travel.   To  administer  these rates, the earth is considered to be divided into units of area 30 minutes square, identical with a quarter of the area  formed  by  intersecting  parallels  of  latitude  and meridians of longitude.  Each unit of area is designated by a number.   The USPS has divided the U.S. and its territories  into  a  local  zone  plus  eight  others.    The postal zones are defined as follows:    Local  zone: The  local  zone  applies  to  mail deposited  at  any  post  office  for  delivery  to 4-6
