when printed prepaid stamps (paypal or  PBS) which date should i use?

I was thinking of post dating my package for  Tuesday Jan 19 but what if i dropped in the mailbox early?

That would be fine.  You can also print them today or tomorrow and it would still be fine.

Not according to my PO.  Had them complain because I would print at night and it would print that day's date (before I figured how to change the date).  They would go out the very next mail date which was always the next day, but they informed me they would no longer take them if they had the date from the day before on them...

When I make the mistake and don't correct it, I just drop them at the other mail box in the other town where the PM is happy to accept them....
