How to Address a Letter Has Changed

Automated Mail Processing Machines Can’t Read Proper English Punctuation! The Result….

Addresses and mail-pieces are now read by automated mail processing machines, that means using proper punctuation may result in your letter never reaching it’s destination.  So, from now on, here are the rules: no cursive, no periods or commas, and only use capital letters.
And…. it brings me much sadness to say, no fancy, colorful, or artistic lettering. 😦

Automated mail processing machines read addresses on mail-pieces from the bottom up and will first look for a city, state, and ZIP Code. Then the machines look for a delivery address.

Any information below the delivery address line (a logo, a slogan, or an attention line) could confuse the machines and misdirect your mail.
