My story , the process and saga of obtaining my permit.

Joseph Lo Preiato story "Don't know and won't admit it."


Section PO23.3.1 of the Domestic Mail Manual gives the rules for securing a

mailer's postmark permit, which is free:

"A mailer must request authorization to preprint rate markings on precanceled stamps or to use a precancel postmark on adhesive stamps, postal cards, and stamped envelopes. The applicant must submit a specimen mailpiece showing the preprinting method or the proposed precancel postmark. If more than one format is used, a specimen showing each must be submitted. Form 3615 must be endorsed 'Preprinting of Rate Markings,' or "Mailer's Precancel Postmark,' or both, as appropriate."

Because this is unfamiliar to many postal clerks and postmasters, you may have to refer them to the appropriate section of the DMM, cited here, to obtain the proper application form. However, one way to facilitate the process, and to find merchants who will manufacture postmark handstamps in the correct format, or to join the organization of collectors who specialize in this field.

A pdf version of the form 3615 can be downloaded form this link http://new.usps.com/pdf/ps3615.pdf
