Postal customers should check with local post offices for information regarding size restrictions and customs declaration form requirements. Customers should realize mailing restrictions apply, and some items cannot be mailed. Examples of non-mailable items are: alcohol, switchblade knives, pornography, controlled substances, and explosive or incendiary devices. If in doubt, contact your local post office.

As a final note, those sending parcels should ensure articles are packaged properly for mailing, and packages do not display markings related to any type of hazardous material, such as bleach, alcohol, or cleaning fluids. U.S. Postal Service workers finding parcels with such markings or labels will not process the package.
