Bulk Mail Service Tip # 4 – Using Abbreviations

Be careful when using abbreviations in addresses.


St Rd 2 vs State Rd 2

The abbreviation “St” means “street” to the post office.

So if you type in St Rd 2 you are telling the post office you want to mail to “Street Road 2”.

Spell out the word State. 

Don’t forget your bulk mail is being processed by computers that read what they see.
