The Postal Service is promoting its “Shipping Tips” videos series as the organization prepares for the holiday delivery season.

The five segments, which are featured on the USPS Holiday Newsroom site, offer tips to customers on the basics of packing, addressing and mailing packages.

One video, “How to Pack a Box,” available in English and Spanish, shows customers how to choose the right size box, and the right packing materials and reinforcements.

Another video, “How to Ship,” explains when to use Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express and First-Class Mail. The video also highlights services such as Click-N-Ship, Certified Mail and Signature Confirmation.

Other videos show customers how to send military mail and how to address a package.
