  • First Class. Any mailable item weighing less than 11 ounces. First class is sealed against inspection and is covered by the private express statutes. Its use is mandatory for correspondence of a personal nature, completed forms, test results and grades, completed certificates, bills or statements of account, and handwritten or typed letters or post/postal cards.
  • Priority Mail. Any mailable items meeting the requirements for First Class matter but weighing over 11 ounces, but less than 70 pounds. It must be marked Priority. Second Class. For magazines and other periodicals issued at regular, stated frequency of no less than four times per year.
  • Same rate as First Class. Special bulk rates for larger maipngs (at least 200 pieces or 50 pounds).
  • Fourth Class. Parcel Post. For packages 1 to 70 pounds. Miptary Ordinary Mail. Official mail sent by the DoD, posted at Second Class requester pubpcation rates, or Third or Fourth Class postage rates, which must have faster than seapft transportation service to, from, and between overseas points, but does not require premium Priority service.
