Default CAUTION - USPS No longer Accepting OLD PS Form 2976 VERSIONS

I know they upgraded their forms but I've had a stash of these and figured I'd try and use them up before getting new ones.

I've never had any issues with this before...but guess what I got in my mail box today.

So do not use PS Form 2976, January 2004



Or you will get this:

The new form is a triple form (still form PS Form 2976 so my title is likely wrong), but its revision date is December 2009. The sender keeps one, the USPS keeps one, and one stays on the package through customs - not exactly much different but does allow the USPS to keep a copy which has all the specifics on it.



opened up



Ironically if you look at the notice I was given..I think its outdated too The green form's date is January 2004...the "naughty notice" shows 11/96 (so guess I'm not the only one really trying not to create waste)

In my experience almost everything will be processed through delivery if it goes through a USPS counter. I drop mine off in the box as I use my post offices APC (automated postal counter) so mine dont go through a counter and that could make the difference

I've been using those triple-page sheets for a while. Have a stack in my car, actually.

I'm getting word elsewhere that this is all over the board at different post offices. Some ordered the new forms and are only accepting them, others didnt order enough new ones and are still taking the old ones, and others that will gladly accept the old ones w/out any issues.

I likely got the wrong person on the right day - but as well all know its better this happen to someone else. Let me be your someone else for today
