It was created as a convenience to the Board Game Industry and to provide additional awareness to themail class in processing.

After conducting a Return on Investment (ROI) analysis, it has been decided that it is in the best interest of the Postal Service to discontinue further production of the Priority Mail Flat Rate Large Board Game Box (GBFRB).
