USPS Certified Mail Forms PS-3800

USPS Certified Mail forms are available at the Post Office free.  But if you want to save time and money go online to Certified Mail Envelopes to address, track and print USPS Certified Mail bar codes and tracking numbers with PC Postage.   You can save $1.97 per green card mailing!  The number of  USPS Certified Mail compliance mailings are higher then last year’s mail volume and many companies are struggling to keep up  -  not to mention they desire to save time and money. 

The traditional Certified Mail forms available from any Post Office includes USPS forms PS-3800 and forms PS-3811 the Domestic Return Receipt (Green Card) that is to be completed and affixed to each Certified Mail letter.  The sender can hand print the address of the recipient and your return address on both USPS cards then apply the sticker of the Certified Mail tracking number onto both copies. The USPS forms are then affixed to the outside of the envelope and proper postage is placed on the envelope $6.48.

Other semi-automated laser forms allow you to use software to address then print a label. The process was nicknamed ‘peel and stick’ because each label has to be carefully peeled from the adhesive then stuck on to each envelope.  This process is time consuming and requires labor to properly affix the forms, and match up the USPS tracking numbers and then file the return receipt green cards when they are returned.  On average, one person can complete eight letters per hour using this type of process.

In today’s changing economic times USPS Certified Mailings are on the increase. Today, companies that use to send ten or 20 letters a month are now sending twice as many letters monthly. Financial and compliance mailings have increased in the financial and investment sector. It’s truly a sign of hard times for many companies and individuals.
