Prepare your parcel for postage

  • Meter frank or stamps should be placed in the top right-hand corner
  • Complete, correct & legible address should be used – include a full postal/zip code where applicable
  • For international parcels with a value greater than €300, the CP72 form should be completed accurately and attached to your item.  All other items should have a CN22 (these are available from your local Post Office).
  • Appropriate packaging & labelling should be used for fragile items
  • Parcels will be machine processed on their largest most stable side (the base);  therefore affix the parcel service label to the centre of the opposite side (the top)
  • Please note that a PO Box is an insufficient address for any signature service
