WHAT IS BULK MAIL?
The U.S. Postal Service has a vast amount of organizing and coding to do for every mailing. If a mailing comes to them with some of that work already done, they discount the price of the mailing. As a bulk mailing service, we do that work and in turn can save you money with the postage discount we get. We have specialized equipment that streamlines the entire mailing process.
“Bulk” mail is a class of mail sent by the U.S. Postal Service at a discounted rate for business mail that has at least 200 pieces and has been sorted by zip code.
So if you have 200 or more pieces of like material then bulk mailing is for you!
WHO SENDS BULK MAIL?
Both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations have found the value in sending their mailings bulk as it not only saves hundreds of dollars on postage and handling, it frees up valuable staff time!
Certain nonprofit (501c3) organizations authorized by the U.S. Postal Service can save even more money on postage. The authorization process is free and you don’t need to purchase a mailing permit…you can use ours! Ask us for the form to get you started.
HOW DOES BULK MAIL WORK?
Mailing list: Do you have a mailing list? And even if you don’t, no worries, as we can purchase one targeted to suit your needs.
Email to us: If you have a mailing list, email it directly to us or bring it in on disk or memory stick. We will then import your list into our state-of-the-art software which will certify your mailing. This means that our software talks to the U.S. Postal Service via computer and can identify incorrect and/or undeliverable addresses. In addition, for a small fee we can use our exclusive Automatic ListCheck™ and will clean up and update your mailing lists and send corrected lists back to you so you don’t need to waste postage or the mailing by sending to an old address.
Drop off the mailing piece: You can drop it off on our handy loading dock or you can just tell your printer to call us when it’s done.
Address your piece: Now we are ready to print addresses directly onto your mailing piece, saving you the high cost of labels and staff time putting them on.
Fold, stuff, seal, tab: We can fold your mail piece, stuff it into an envelope, seal it or tab a self-mailer if you’d like. And we work closely with printers to make sure your mailing goes as planned.
Drop at the post office: Don’t worry, we do this part!
Partial jobs: We can do all or even just a part of your mailing. If your job is already completed by your staff and you just need the bulk or first class postage metered…we can take care of this too!
