Tips for Mailing - Blue Hill Press
Postcards qualify for discounted First-Class postage.
Maximum size of postcard to qualify for discounted postage is 4 ¼” x 6”.
Presort First-Class postage for a postcard costs less than Presort Standard postage for a letter.
USPS offers no Presort Standard postage rate for postcards.
USPS requires blank space 4” x 2” in lower right corner for address and bar code.
Folded self-mailers cost less to produce than mailers in envelopes.
Folded self-mailers get better results than mailers in envelopes, because message is visible on outside.
Folded self-mailers must be secured with at least two wafer-seals or glue strips. (See Tabbing Guidelines)
Mailers folded with opening at top of mailing panel require only two wafer-seals.
Mailers folded with opening at bottom of mailing panel require at least two wafer-seals.
If timing is not critical, save postage by mailing Presort Standard.
Base rate for Presort Standard postage applies to mail pieces up to 3.3 ounces.
Blue Hill Press can apply bar codes to qualify mail pieces for Presort Standard Automation postage rates.
Presort Standard Automation postage costs even less than Presort Standard postage.
Postage for mailing flats is high. Consider folding to get postage rate for letters. Postage savings will more than offset money spent for folding and wafer-sealing.
To update your mailing list and get free address corrections, mail Presort First-Class once or twice a year.
