Labeling and Markings

To increase the visibility of mailpieces containing cremated remains, the outer shipping box (USPS-produced or customer-supplied) containing cremated remains must be marked with Label 139, Cremated Remains, affixed to each side (including top and bottom). Label 139 is available at the Postal Store on or can be obtained at a retail Post Office™ location.
