Potential Postage Cost



Planning a University-sponsored direct mail campaign or designing a new mailer? Contact Peggy Smith to review the mailing plans to determine if it qualifies for some type of postage savings. Mailing a letter compared to a large flat mailer varies significantly in postage costs. Send an e-mail describing the mailing or send a sample of what is being considered to determine potential cost saving measures.

If you utilize Non-Profit rates to mail magazines, newsletters, or any type of flat-size mailer (anything larger than 6 1/8” H x 11 ½ L), please be aware there are new format requirements effective March 29, 2009. The change impacts where you place the delivery address panel which has been “re-designed” by the USPS in order to utilize automated discounts. If you have questions contact Mail Services at:
