Sending Certified Mail

  1. Fill in recipient's name and address at the bottom of the form and write the date mailed in the "Postmark Here" area.
  2. Peel the backing from the bar-coded label and place at the top of the envelope immediately to the right of the return address so the dotted line is even with the top of the envelope. Fold the upper green part of the label over the top of the envelope. DO NOT place the sticker to the far right or on the side of the envelope; sufficient space must be left for attaching postage.
  3. Detach the certified mail receipt and keep for your records (you will need the number on the receipt if you wish to trace the letter.)
