How to Help the Machines

March 25, 1997|From Associated Press

To help the Postal Service's new machines read handwritten mail:

* Print numbers, but write street names and cities in cursive.

* Put ZIP Codes on the city/state line.

* Don't let numbers touch.

* Refrain from excessive spacing.

* Don't let the tail on a letter like G run into the line below.

* Keep address lines parallel to the bottom edge of the letter.
