New look for Priority Mail, Express Mail starts May 14

redesigned Priority Mail and Express Mail packages and envelopesFocusing on conve­nience, the Postal Service has redesigned all Priority Mail and Express Mail packages and envelopes, includ­ing the popular Flat Rate boxes and enve­lopes. Beginning May 14, mailers can use the same Priority Mail and Express Mail packaging whether they are shipping in the United States or to another country.

The design change — the first since 1995 — has a fresher, crisper look. The Postal Service logo is prominent alongside international symbols for use by foreign posts. The new design has ample space for required forms, labels and Intelligent Mail barcodes.

Post Offices across the country should receive the new packaging this month. All packaging will be available online at May 14.
