Sending Mail From Hope
Normal letters are mailed through the mail center by placing the stamped and addressed envelope in the appropriate slot below the lobby window. (diagram)
Airmail should be left at the window. The country that the mail is being sent to must be clearly written on the last line of the address. For all airmail other than letters 1/4" thick or more, a customs form must be filled out and signed by department personnel.
Inter-Campus mail - does not need stamps!
First it is much easier for you to prepare intercampus mail if no names are needed. If you have mass mailings:
*General Distribution - mainly used for number of bulletin boards per departments. However, it could mean that department decided they want a copy for everyone anyway. Depends how they requested the numbers.
ask yourself, is it really necessary? - delivery takes much longer!)
for faculty/staff: (mail center
has counts - see above)

Mail To Be Metered
All unstamped mail to be metered should be in trays or rubber banded together with the unsealed flaps up and your account number in the upper left-hand corner of at least the top envelope. Do not allow the adhesive closures to get wet or they will stick together.
Separate and bundle mail according to the 4 slots provided (diagram) beneath the mailroom window. Please use rubber bands from the desk or ask for trays at the window for group mailings.
Envelopes with black printed addresses
on white background, can be sent presort, which is 3 cents cheaper than
first-class mail. In order for your mail to be sent this way the same
day, it must be at the mail center before 3:00 pm.
