To apply for a one-time limited use of a USPS trademark or copyrighted material, please use the USPS application form PS 8676. When completed, send the form and a scan/photo of the $25 application fee in the form of check/money order for processing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All fees, including the one-time, non-refundable $25 application fee*, should be mailed to:

*In cases where the logo will be used to indicate USPS as a shipping method, no application fee is required. However, you must still complete the application and attach the proposed layout of the piece or the individual page that would use the USPS logo.
Please note, applications received without the application fee will be considered incomplete and will not be processed. Requests are generally processed within 20 to 30 days of receipt of the completed application. Once approved, additional fee(s) may apply.
Additional fees are generally added for commercial uses and are calculated with information provided in the application, including number of images or trademarks requested, intended use, format of use and production scale.
Fees will be charged in hourly or daily increments for filming on USPS premises or using USPS property. The fee is based on the location, size of production, and amount of disruption to normal activities. Location fees will also be charged for use of USPS trucks or other vehicles.
After your application has been approved and, if needed, final payment is received, you will be issued a License/Permission Letter, guidelines covering how the materials can be reproduced, and instructions to download the requested material(s).
All fees are subject to change at the discretion of the Postal Service™.
