USPS Express Mail Time

Predict the USPS Express Mail Delivery Time

The USPS Express Mail delivery time depends on where you're sending it from, the time of day, where you're sending it to, and how much you're willing to pay. The United States Postal Services reports that Express Mail takes an average of one to two business days to arrive. SendOvernightMail.com makes it easy to get your mail in the USPS quickly and easily. Here's what to consider:

  1. Envelopes sent pre-9:30am EST are fulfilled that same day (Monday to Saturday)
  2. Envelopes sent post-9:30am EST are fulfilled the next day (Monday to Friday)
  3. Envelopes placed between 9:30am EST Saturday and 9:30am EST Monday will be fulfilled on Monday.
  4. Choose from printing black & white, vs in color, and single vs. double sided
  5. For all orders, we'll send a USPS Tracking Number as soon as they are fulfilled and a delivery notification as soon as it arrives.
  6. If those delivery times don't work, check out our upcoming Fedex service!
