What exactly is a Presorted Standard stamp?

I have a stamp that says “Presorted Standard.” Can I use it for a regular letter? What is the difference between that stamp and any other regular stamp?

If you mail thousands of pieces of mail that are presorted by zip code there are mailing discounts. There must be a minimum number for each zip code. Instead of buying a bulk mail permit you can get the special stamps. A free permit is required to buy them.

A presorted stamp is used on letters that have permits.

In order to use a Presorted Stamp, you need to have an LPC code, which is a whole bunch of vertical lines. You see these on Business Reply envelopes. Without the correct dashes, or code, the stamp cannot be used.

That stamp is for presorted junk mail. You need a 41 cent stamp for first class (regular mail).
