Issue: USPS can reject mail with "stale" dates By: spooky
Are you experiencing this issue?

It is unfortunate that the OP did not specify anything further. How stale? 1 day, 1 week, 1 month?

Never had that problem. I would think the post office has better things to do than look at a date. IE maybe weight things to see if that package actually weights 3 oz or 10 oz.

Good to know; I won't use outdated labels. Not that I ever do, so this isn't an issue for reasonable people.

This has been USPS policy for decades. In particular they are very fussy about Priority and Express mail dates. You have 48 hours for regular mail and 24 hours for Priority and Express mail to get your parcels to the Post Office.
