Postal Station Frequently Asked Questions

How do I change my address/forward my mail?
You can do both online for $1 or you can stop by either of our locations to fill out a change of address form.

How much will it cost to send my package?
You can find mailing prices online or you can visit either of our locations with your package contents, as well as an address so that we can gather an accurate cost.

Can I track my package?
You can track your packages online with the number provided if you are mailing with any of the following services: Express Mail, Priority Mail, Standard Post, First-Class (add $1.05), or Media Mail (add $1.05). Internationally, you can track a package only if it is sent via Global Express Guaranteed. Express Mail is tracked until it leaves the U.S.

How many stamps can I get?
You can get as little as 1 stamp at a time. We do bulk stamp orders when the quantity exceeds 200 (except for Forever stamps- we usually have 200 on hand to sell at a time). Additionally, orders cannot exceed $1,000/wk. We also have books of 20 stamps and rolls of 100.

How can I prepare my international mail?
All international mail packages require a customs form. In order to cut down your time spent at the postal station, you can fill out a customs form online and print it. Remember to bring it with you when you mail your package.
