Do I need to use Zip/Postal Codes on the envelopes?

Yes.

For your Respondents’ addresses, the Zip/Postal code should be included and styled normally.

Example:
John Smith
DETROIT UTILITY INC
Detroit, Michigan  48100

However, on envelopes and wherever you or your Witnesses’ addresses are written, we strongly recommend 3 things:

  1. adding a c/o before the mailing address (this means “care of”)
  2. adding square brackets [ ] around the Zip/Postal Code
  3. writing the the full State or Province name, instead of the abbreviation

Example:
Jane Doe
c/o 369 Constitution Drive
Detroit, Michigan  [48111]
