Spending valuable company time printing address labels, licking postage stamps and hauling heavy boxes to the Post Office?
Summit Printing has a solution for you!
Most businesses take steps to cut costs, increase efficiency, and eliminate waste. Many companies, however, are likely leaving money on the table when it comes to postage. As long as your mailing is at least 200 pieces, or 500 for First Class Mail, the U.S. Postal Service provides businesses with opportunities to save money that can go right to your bottom line.
When you put a stamp on a letter (or use a postage meter) you're paying the single-piece postage rate.
The term "bulk mail" (also know as presorted mail) refers to larger quantities of mail specially prepared
for mailing at the reduced postage rates.
Savings is based on the cost of stamps for 5,000 4″ X 9″ postcards vs. Summit Printing addressing AND mailing the postcards.
The comparison ALSO includes your postage (bulk-rate standard mail).
Although bulk mail prices are MUCH lower than "single-piece" prices, many companies are paying the single-piece postage — even for large mailings. Why? They are either unaware of the savings opportunity, or because of the time, hassle, software and equipment that it takes to perform the mail preparation requirements by the post office to maximize their savings on the postage fees.
Using state-of-the-art equipment & software, we prepare your mailing in accordance with the latest USPS postal requirements, allowing us to pass the postage discounts directly to you.
There are two levels of mail discounts available:
(1) Presort Automation (the lowest rate) (2) Basic Presorted Mail (non-automation)
Presorted Automation Rate
Summit Printing performs all of the processing and sorting required by th US Post Office for your mailing to receive the low presort automation rates on your postage, including the new Intelligent Mail™ barcode (IMb) requirement. Besides saving additional money on postage, mail bearing the Intelligent Mail Barcode is also processed more rapidly by the USPS, typically resulting in faster delivery of your bulk mail.
We accept the following formats: .xls (Excel, recommended), .csv (Comma delimited) or .txt (ASCII text file) Here is a sample of what the mailing list excel sheet should look like:
