Tweet It’s a simple fact that your bulk mail campaign can’t get dropped off or delivered if the U.S. Post Office is closed. With this in mind, it’s critical that you keep USPS holidays in sight. Unfortunately, on some the lesser known holidays most of us are still hard at work while our government counterparts get a day off of work; this is why it’s easy to overlook these key days when the US Post Office will be closed. Another reason it’s easy to miss postal holidays is because five of the ten days that the U.S. Post Office is closed in 2014 fall on Mondays . This means if you don’t get your campaign mailed by the preceding Friday, you’ll have to wait three days to get it in the mail. If you’re a marketer, you need to be aware of all of these dates; they are essentially black-out days for bulk mail marketing. This short post will give you the low down on everything that you need to know to keep your critical marketing campaigns on schedule in 2014. Here are the days that the USPS will be closed in 2014: Wednesday, January 1 New Year’s Day Monday, January 20 Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. Monday, February 17 President’s Day/Washington’s Birthday Monday, May 26 Memorial Day Friday, July 4 Independence Day Monday
