Postal Service using regional marks for holidays

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service is using nine regional postmarks during December for greeting cards.

The postmarks line up with postal stations that have seasonal-sounding names.

Postmarks are being used in Bethlehem, Elkhorn City, Elkton, Miracle, Nazareth, Partridge, Pine Knot, Pine Top and Pineville.

Customers wanting a special holiday postmark on their greeting cards need to do the following:

— Personalize greeting card. Seal envelope. Print addresses on envelopes.

— Put postage stamp on each card

— Mail all the greeting cards together in a larger envelope or Priority Mail box to the appropriate address.

— Mail the package no later than Dec. 15. After Dec. 15, please use Priority Express Mail.

The Postal Service relies entirely on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
