ZIP code poster featuring Dick Tracy

Some forms of communication and advertising seem perfectly suited to their circumstances—like reading the back of a cereal box while waking up with breakfast. Waiting in line at the post office window, the eye-catching graphics and compelling text on posters work to fill the time and inform postal customers. Posters commissioned by the post office announce changes to regulations and promote the latest services and retail options.
