I run a business on the side, and I have a stamp return address thing, so instead of handwriting something out I can just stamp my address on there. But, it has my business name and URL. I'm not doing this for advertising - I doubt many PBS members need laceweight hand dyed wool yarn :-) But will this get me in trouble for the "commercial use" part?

I doubt it. I personally would consider a member very very fussy if they complained about a business name being on the return address. I'm sure it's not the first time people used business address labels/stamp for a return address.

I've received lots of books from members that use their business return labels. I've never once questioned whether it was any breach of the "commercial" policy. It sometimes makes me work to figure out who it's from until I get it open, but there's nothing wrong with using the stamp or label that is most handy for you. JMHO :)
