When I print the wrapper for a book, the "To" address appears in the middle of the label. But the post office is now sticking two tags on packages, one for postage and one is a kind of post office

internal delivery confirmation tag which is the same size as the postage tag. But on a 4 x 7 paperback, having the "to" address in the middle of the label doesn't leave much room for the second tag.

Could the label be redesigned to move the "to" address farther to the left to give the post office more room for all its stamps and tags?

Just an idea.

You should make this suggestion using the contact us link. TPTB don't hang out in the forums ane may not see this.

The label was set up by PBS with the post office.  So I doubt they would change anything unless their postal rep said they needed to change it.

I use the printed wrappers with no problems, my PO guy slaps the tracking sticker in the lower left corner so it doesn't interfere with the address.  Your PO worker needs to be a bit more accurate in placement.

PBS uses a standardized label format, per USPS criteria.  You can make the suggestion, but I suspect that the items, size, and location are pretty much exactly where USPS wants them.

That is to say where USPS as an organization want them.  Individual post offices/postal clerks form their own opinions of such things all the time, regardless of what the rules are.  crying
