When address information does not fit on one line, wrap the additional information on either the line above or below, as shown below. However, the use of standard business word abbreviations is preferred over line wrapping. Only wrap lines if standard abbreviations do not meet your business needs.
Line #9, Business/Firm Name, should be printed on a single line for maximum MLOCR matching. If necessary, it may be wrapped down.
When secondary delivery information, e.g., APT or SUITE, is part of the address but does not fit on the Delivery Address Line, wrap up all components of the secondary information immediately above the Delivery Address Line.
Line #10 — Delivery Address Line
It is preferred that all City, State, and ZIP Code information be on a single line. If that is not possible, the ZIP Code, including the ZIP+4 Code, may be placed below the city/state information. However, when compressing line #11, do not remove the hyphen between the ZIP Code and the ZIP+4 add-on code.
Line #11 — City, State, ZIP+4 Line
