US Postal Service Definitions
First-Class Mail and Priority Mail are both trademarked names for shipping services of the United States Postal Service. First-Class Mail is actually a family of services, primarily intended for letters, postcards and small packages. When mailers use a standard postage stamp on an envelope, the Post Office delivers it using First-Class Mail. Priority Mail, which the Post Office considers part of First-Class Mail, can accommodate larger and heavier packages. Priority Mail features a stated delivery time of two to three days within the continental United States, while First-Class mail generally arrives in a similar time frame. Both First Class-Mail and Priority Mail now includes tracking within the United States.
Several restrictions apply to both First-Class Mail and Priority Mail services. For regular First-Class Mail, the package may weigh no more than 13 ounces. Priority Mail has a weight limit of 70 lbs.
