MAILING TIPS

• Select a box that is strong enough to protect the contents. Leave space for cushioning inside the carton.

• Cushion contents with shredded or rolled newspaper, bubble wrap or Styrofoam peanuts.

• Do not use wrapping paper, string, masking tape or cellophane tape. Always use tape that is designed for shipping, such as pressure-sensitive tape, nylon-reinforced craft paper tape or glass-reinforced pressure-sensitive tape.

• Place an extra label or notice with the delivery and return address inside the package.

• Remove batteries from toys. Wrap and place them next to the toys in the mailing box.

• Stuff glass and fragile hollow items, like vases, with newspaper or packing material to avoid damage.

• Print addresses clearly and include all address elements.

• Never guess a ZIP code. No ZIP code is better than a wrong ZIP code.

• Include both "to" and "from" information on only one side of packages.
