RE: The tariff classification of postcards, from Taiwan, Hong Kong, or China.

Dear Ms. Magyar:

In your letter dated October 27 1992, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Samples were submitted, which will be retained for reference. They are conventional postcards (your designation: Sticker Postcards) with printed spaces allocated for address, postage, and message, measuring 6" x 3 3/4", with the additional feature of being printed on the reverse face with pressure- sensitive removable pictures (stickers).

The applicable subheading for the Sticker Postcards will be 4909.00.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: Printed or illustrated postcards. The rate of duty will be 4 percent ad valorem. This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177). A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
