The Next Generation of Extra Large Capacity Mailboxes
In 1915, the familiar curved roof and tunnel shaped mailbox design by Roy J. Joroleman was first introduced. It has since become a classic design, with a traditional size that has endured for more than a century.
In 2015 the United States Postal Service introduced the new USPS Standard 7C Regulations that included “Large Capacity” mailboxes with expanded mail capacity requirements.
To commemorate this milestone, Architectural Mailboxes recently introduced the USPS approved post mount Centennial Mailbox, designed with an extra large capacity.
The Architectural Centennial large capacity mailbox is designed to meet the needs of today’s home-based businesses, as well as online Internet shoppers. It is constructed of strong, powder coated galvanized steel and features a die cast aluminum handle plus a rigid powder coated steel flag.
Extra Large Capacity Mailbox
The images accompanying this article depict the Centennial black with silver flag large capacity post mount mailbox. Incredibly, it is over 5 ½” wider than the traditional 8 5/8” curbside post mount mailboxes that you would normally find. Plus, the interior of the Centennial design is more than 1” higher.
In fact, when comparing the actual interior size in cubic inches, the extra large capacity Centennial mailbox is 56% larger (1110.876 cubic inches) larger than a standard sized letterbox.
This extra large capacity means that the Centennial mailbox can handle several days worth of mail, plus magazines and small to medium-sized packages. This is great news for all online shoppers and home-based businesses that don’t want their packages left outside on the doorstep.
Architectural Mailboxes Centennial large capacity mailbox with adjustable flag also has a few other excellent features.

The powder coated Centennial mailboxes are also available in three striking colors that are sure to match most architectural motifs:
- Black with a nickel silver flag and handle (pictured here)
- Pewter with a red flag and silver handle
- Rubbed bronze with a nickel silver flag and handle
