First-Class Mail

First-Class Mail® is a simple, affordable option for shipping envelopes and lightweight packages. Deliveries happen with one to three days of shipping and First-Class Mail Forever® stamps cost $0.55 and will never expire, even if the rate for First-Class Mail® goes up. AIM Mail Centers ships via the USPS and other carriers with ground deliveries available to all addresses in the United States, as well as deliveries to Mexico and Canada. The maximum weight for large First-Class Mail® parcels and envelopes is 13 ounces, making it a suitable option for online retailers who sell travel-sized beauty products, jewelry, or phone accessories. Additional size restrictions apply depending on the type of item you're sending.

Priority Mail

Priority Mail® from the USPS offers standard deliveries in one to three business days. You can receive alerts and delivery time estimates via the Priority Mail® Delivery Map. The Priority Mail® Flat Rate allows you to ship packages that weigh up to 70 pounds to any state at the same price. Here are some of the features and pricing considerations for this delivery option: - Fast delivery times (based on origin, destination, and drop-off time. The expected delivery date does not come with a money-back guarantee.) - Free package pickup services at your home or office - USPS Tracking and up to $50 of insurance with most shipments - No extra charges for deliveries on Saturdays
