BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — You don’t have to go to the Post Office to use many postal products and services. In fact, most simple tasks can be done from the convenience and safety of your home with or without a computer.

For example, using your computer, you can go to the Postal Store on and select different stamp denominations. USPS will deliver them right to your home.

If you don't have computer access, no problem. Ask your local Post Office or carrier to bring you a "Stamps by Mail" order form, complete it and put it in your mailbox with a check. Again, USPS will bring you your stamps.

If you need to send a package, you can order free Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express boxes, or other package supplies at Again, USPS will deliver items to your address. And at, using Click-N-Ship, you can print a mailing label with the appropriate postage right from your computer.

Then you can schedule a free carrier pick-up. In your request, let your local Post Office know where they can find the package or packages and the carrier will retrieve them when he or she delivers your mail.
