Please help get this important information out. I don't think many people are aware of this, and it could seriously delay your mail!
The United States Postal Service no longer accepts envelopes with metal clasps. Metal clasps cause problems with high-volume machinery and are a very serious safety hazard to postal employees.
Please remove any metal clasps from envelopes prior to mailing.
The post office will return any mail that has a clasp, even if the clasp is taped over.
