Urgent question that sadly, cannot seem to be addressed easily from the USPS website. Thought this forum might have knowledgable folks in this area.
My family and I are traveling light to Italy and Austria for 3 weeks. During that 3 weeks we are attending a wedding. We are shipping our wedding attire and the wedding gift before we leave so we don't have to carry it through our travels. I am using the click n ship and package pick up functionality from the USPS website. All worked brilliantly until my label and customs printed out. Please know I do click and ship all the time domestically, so I know generally how the system works.
For the box I'm shipping, when I print the label/custom doc from the USPS website to my printer, three pages are printed. The first two are identical except one has a bar code and one does not. The one that does not have a bar code includes the following language: "Page 2 - Not Valid As Proof-of-Payment for US Postage". The third page is a different structure, with a place for a "stamp from customs" and the following language: "Page 3 Not Valid As Proof-of-Payment for US Postage"
Here's the question, the answer for which seems like it should be on the USPS website somewhere, but alas I can't find it anywhere.
Do I print out all four "labels" and stick them to the box or do I have to obtain a plastic "sleeve" that is affixed to the box and cut and insert the four labels?
Does anyone know who has done this? I'm feeling like a dummy, but can't believe I'm the only one with this question.
