Here are some frequently asked questions that can help you in your direct mailing...just
some tips we've learned along the way. If you have other questions or would like to
know more contact us. We're here to assist you.
Is there a minimum number of pieces required for mailing?
To mail Presorted Standard, the most affordable class of mailing, you will need a
minimum of 200 pieces. However, you can mail any number of pieces and we'll help
you find the most affordable ways.
Is there a weight consideration for my mail piece?
Yes. If you wish to mail Presorted Standard, the piece must weigh less than 16 ounces.
If you mail Presorted First Class, each mail piece must weigh less than 13 ounces.
I want to send a postcard. Are there restrictions on the dimensions?
You may think that your mail piece is a "card," because it is a single sheet of paper. But
to qualify for mailing at First-Class Mail card rates, a card must be:
At least 3-1/2 inches high x 5 inches long x 0.007 inch thick
No more than 4-1/4 inches high x 6 inches long x 0.016 inches thick
If your mail piece does not meet the dimensions above, then the Postal Service
considers it a letter (and charges letter rate postage). With Standard Mail, there is a little
more flexibility -- there is no separate (lower) postage rate for cards, so you don't have to
worry about your postcard being too big -- because you're paying letter rates anyway. But
make sure that your card is no larger than 6-1/8" x 11-1/2" x 1/4" thick. Larger than any of
those dimensions and you'll have to pay flat (large envelope) postage rates."
