Free for all

USPS offers a variety of products and services at affordable prices — as well as a lot of material at no cost to customers.

For example, Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express boxes, envelopes and labels are available at no charge, along with international mailing products and customs forms. Customers can order these materials at and have them delivered to their door or picked up at a local Post Office.

Customers can also pick up free recyclable Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes at any Post Office, or they can order them online at or by calling 800-610-8734.

Additionally, customers can go online to arrange for Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express packages to be picked up at their home or office — and USPS offers free insurance up to $50 for most shipments.

In addition to helping USPS provide customers with excellent experiences, the free materials help the Postal Service to attract new business that grows revenue.
