WASHINGTON — In a move to raise awareness of its stamp program and to reach diverse audiences and people of all ages, the Postal Service is offering a sneak peek at some of the stamps that will be issued in 2012, beginning today through social media sites.

Customers may preview the stamps on Facebook at facebook.com/USPSStamps, through Twitter @USPSstamps or on the website Beyond the Perf at www.beyondtheperf.com/2012-preview. Beyond the Perf is the Postal Service’s online site for the back story on upcoming stamp subjects, first-day-of-issue events and other philatelic news.

Advance Copy of L006 Labeling List Available on RIBBS

without comments

From the DMM Advisory:
An advance copy of the L006 Labeling List files is now available for review on the RIBBS® website under Labeling Lists>Important Links. The zip file contains both the human readable Labeling List L006 and the product files in text format.

The Labeling List L006 data will be posted on the Postal Explorer® website on August 1 and the National Customer Support Center will disseminate the product files during their regularly scheduled August 1 release.

Non-active FSS zones have been included as part of the L006 labeling list for modeling purposes. Non-active FSS zones are ZIP Codes which are planned for FSS processing, but whose scheme assignment is not yet determined. These records are included to provide a complete list of FSS zones, but they should not yet be prepared as FSS scheme containers. Non-active FSS zones are defined where the FSS Scheme Name matches the FSS Facility Name. As FSS schemes are finalized, these records will be converted to the conventional scheme and facility format.

If you have any questions about system programming for labeling list L006, please refer to the Labeling Lists Technical Guide. The advance copy of L006 files will remain on the RIBBS website until the next publication of the Labeling Lists, in October 2011.

For any additional assistance, please call our Labeling List Technical Support group at (800) 238-3150.
