Items such as posters and single sheet flyers that exceed 11 1/2" X 15" must be folded in half. Addressed single sheet items must be folded in half unless they are printed on poster paper.

Preventing Damage

Most damage to packages is due to improper packaging and handling. A strong, sturdy container and adequate cushioning can protect your contents against damage. For further packaging requirements please refer to the following:
