LOUISVILLE, KY – Is this the only time of year you mail gifts? It’s OK. We understand. Give us two minutes and we’ll explain.

The United States Postal Service is offering “Shipping Tips” videos to help customers prepare for the holiday mailing season. The five video segments, which are featured on the USPS Holiday Newsroom site, offer tips on the basics of packing, addressing and mailing packages. Each video is about two minutes long.

One video, “How to Pack a Box,” available in English and Spanish, shows customers how to choose the right size box, and the right packing materials and reinforcements.

Another video, “How to Ship,” explains when to use Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express and First-Class Mail. The video also highlights services such as Click-N-Ship, Certified Mail and Signature Confirmation.

Other videos show customers how to send military mail and how to address a package.
