New USPS certified mail changes

Effective May 31, 2015 the U.S. Postal Service increased the price of Certified Return Receipt (CRR) mail, also known as the green card return receipt, to $6.74 from the previous $6.49. To save $1.40, you can use the Electronic Return Receipt (ERR), which now cost $5.34 total per mail piece.

The format of the Return Green Card (PS Form 3811) and Certified Mail Receipt (PS Form 3800) also changed.

TRADITION SOFTWARE has been in contact with the Postal Service business office in Memphis, TN regarding the continued use of our CRR and ERR pre-printed TRADITION Forms, our self-mailer certified mail forms developed with the U.S. Postal Service in 2010. As of today, the Postal Service is trying to determine what to do with vendors and business partners like ourselves who have stock on hand for certified mail solutions.
