    Hey guys, I need to get a 9x12ish envelope (<0.5lb) from LA to New York by January 9, 2009. When's the latest I can send it in order to get it in on time with US Postal Service Express Mail? Is it overnight?

    i imagine any of the major shipping sites (UPS, Fed EX, USPS) could answer that question for you

    In front of my computer, obviously
    I just used the USPS to get something from Nor Cal to Manhattan, they did it on schedule, no problem. Check their website, but I think for that trip it has to be at the post office by noon to get cross country by the next day. Use one of the blue envelopes that is clearly marked FLAT RATE EXPRESS MAIL and it will cost you less money.

    the thing is, it's for a writing competition, and I don't know when I can get my work done.
