Shopping and shipping season is here. I am always last minute when it comes to sending out Christmas gifts so these reminders on dates for shipping with the post office help.

According to the United States Post Office the 2016 holiday shipping out off dates are as follows:

USPS Ground:  Dec. 15
First-Class: Dec. 20
Priority Mail Service: Dec. 21
Priority Mail Express Service: Dec. 23

Destination Network Distribution Center (DNDC) Drop Ship Dec. 19
Destination Delivery Unit (DDU) Drop Ship Dec. 22

Some tips for packaging and shipping for the holidays:

  • Sealing up all seems and edges with packaging tape.
  • Practice right size shipping and make sure you are shipping things the most efficient way. You can go to the post office and figure out options as well as online.
