In most cases the maximum length of any form field (e.g.
city, etc.) value Abound will accept will be 191 characters long. However, there are occasions when long length values do not reasonable fit on PDF forms or envelopes for physical mailings. Below we describe how we handle these case:
Don't truncate yourself
Please do not truncate data before passing it to Abound. Full length data may be used for electronic filing or other government submissions even if it doesn't fit on the corresponding PDF form or letter.
Please note we only use the first 70 characters of the
name field for Tin Verifications. For best results, do not include middle names in this field.
For long names and addresses, we wrap onto new lines in the allowed form field boxes. If we encounter space limits we do not truncate data. On rare cases, if working with very long addresses, be sure to review and inspect generated PDFs before issuance for correctness.
We are limited on how an address appears on an envelope. Please review to ensure your letter reaches its destination correctly.
