Did you know metered mail MUST be sent with a print date if account information is enclosed in the envelope?

For those interested here is some interesting stuff about regulations of the US Postal Service:

Meter Date (604.4.6)

AND, here is the wording for First-class mail:

All mailable matter can be mailed as First-Class Mail. Some things MUST be mailed as First-Class Mail (or Priority Mail), including:
  • Handwritten or typewritten material
  • Bills, statements of account or invoices, credit cards
  • Personal correspondence, personalized business correspondence
  • All matter sealed or otherwise closed against inspection.

Oh, do you want the references? Just in case you'd like to check my facts:

If anyone is receiving bills, account information or checks in envelopes NOT stamped with a metered date you can use the below link to report them to the USPS:

Oh, and if you're interested, the Pitney Bowes meter used by Ellora's Cave is: 0003217049
