Boy do I feel dumb.  I selected printable postage for a swap book but I marked it received before I ever actually printed the dang thing.  Now it's gone!!!  I was going to reprint from home and get it in the mail but I'm guessing now I'm out my postage.  Does anyone know?  I went to the transaction archive but there was no place to reprint postage.

Edited to clarify - this was done using the "mail to a friend" option

Did you try contacting PBS?  Since the book was never scanned, they might be able to let you reprint the label. 

So you paid for the postage but then didn't print it out?  I'd contact PBS but you might be out of luck.

Oh well.  I'm calling it a loss because I want to mail this book tomorrow.  By the time I contact PBS and get an answer it will be too late.  You can reprint a label anytime - even after it's been marked mailed (not that I condone that, but I did it because it was a "mail it to a friend", not an official PBS transaction).  I went through the motions so I could post the DC# in my swap then figured I'd print the label later.  It would've been fine if I wouldn't have forgotten and marked the book received to get it off my "books enroute" tab.  Oh well - live and learn, right?!
