Zina--I asked the same question when I first started here...the answer I got is that the name on the box is NOT considered advertising.  I use Amazon boxes frequently and haven't had a problem at all.  I think Amazon ships things Media Mail from time to time and they use their boxes!

Not advertising.  I also reuse Amazon boxes (marker out the barcodes) with no problems.

Just never, never resue a Priority Mail box or envelope for mailing, because it is illegal and if you get caught, the PO will charge the Priority Mail rate for the package. (They know the sizes of the boxes and will even unwrap papered over boxes to check on this sometimes).

My PO clerk said that anything written on the box must be marked out with a dark ink or covered in the brown mailing paper.
