Bulk Mail

Bulk Mail

There are two rate structures for this class, the non-profit bulk rate and the automated bulk rate. Almost all types of mail can be shipped at this rate. Bulk mail differs from 1st class in price (a lower rate) and time (allow an extra 2 or 3 days).

A bulk mailing can result in savings of 65 to 90 percent over first class rates. To qualify for nonprofit bulk mailing rates the Bulk Mail Check- List must be met.

Call Tammy Trcka @ 389-2173 for additional information, and to avoid any higher postage rates.
