Can't figure out the correct zip code for your address?

The US Postal Service has a tool for looking up the zip code for any domestic address. You'll need to have their full mailing address to use this tool: USPS Zip Code Lookup

Having troubles addressing your foreign mail?

Here are a couple links to help you out. Foreign addresses can be long, complicated and often difficult to format if you don't understand why they look the way they do.

Frank's Compulsive Guide to Postal Addresses is without a doubt the most thorough and useful guide to addressing anything. It is accurate and very good at explaining the most complicated addressing formats in simple terms, and has links to each countries that have a postal service.

USPS International's website is less thorough, but has some good information on USPS specific regulations and formats.

Have a stamp that doesn't have a price on it?

These stamps are called "non-denominated" because they don't show the price they are worth. This could mean that your stamp is a "Forever Stamp" or it could simply be a design that does not say how much it is worth. Visit here to see a list of currently valid non-denominated stamps (complete with pictures).
