What is the meaning of "postmarked"?

Answer

According to the U.S. Postal Service, "postmarked" is the official imprint applied in black ink that identifies the location and date at which the USPS accepted custody of the mailed item. A postmark voids any postage affixed on the mailed item.

The USPS states that the postmark is located on the address side of the mailed item. Local postmarks identify the entire name of the post office, the two-letter state abbreviation, the zip code and the date of mailing. Some customers place importance on the postmark of a letter, so the USPS requires all local post office locations to make a local postmark an option for customers.
