How to Ship Priority Mail Express 

USPS offers Priority Mail Express, which is a 1-day delivery between urban areas, and a 2-day delivery between rural areas. It's the fastest service USPS offers, and comes with free signature confirmation and $100 of insurance!

Each Post Office has their own unique cut-off times when they stop accepting Express shipments for the day. 

To figure out if your shipment qualifies for one-day shipping, check out the USPS Service Commitments here: https://postcalc.usps.com/ServiceCommitments

You’ll just need to enter your Ship From and Ship To ZIPs, along with when you expect to drop the package off at the Post Office. 

We do recommend going into the Post Office and handing the package directly to an employee, since that’s the best way to ensure the package goes out at the right time! 

If USPS doesn’t deliver the package by the date and time stated in the Service Commitments, they will offer a full refund on your label. Just send us a message 👍

How to create a Priority Mail Express Label

To choose the Priority Mail Express service, you can select the package type you have on hand from the Package Type dropdown on the Create Label page, or use your own packaging:
