Marketing Mail Class (Presort)
Marketing Mail (we refer to as "Presort"), formally known as Standard Mail and most often referred to as Bulk Mail, is a valuable option included in the base price of all our direct mail products. This is a component of our "All Inclusive Pricing". Preferred for real estate marketing postcards and other campaigns as combined with our other USPS certifications and On-Site Validation/Entry,  brings tremendous value.  As our process of certifying, validating and then sorting and grouping the mail prior to it arriving a USPS plant reduces the work on postal side which they pass along via a reduced rate compared to First Class Mail.

Despite USPS prioritizing First-Class mail for processing, Marketing Mail (Presort) leveraging our systems can yield comparable in-home arrival dates if executed effectively. Furthermore, Marketing Mail is not merely pushed to the back of the line. Through our enhanced approach, utilizing our proprietary systems platform and live sync with USPS data servers, we expedite production and verification processes, resulting in improved in-home arrival dates. It typically arrives within 1-5 days. Large Mailers- Giant Postcards and Large Self Mailers known as "Flats" may take from 3-14 days.

It can be the best option for time-sensitive or critical information depending on your timing or if your quantity is under 200 pieces. If your materials are dated and/or have an event date or time-sensitive call to action, possibly a quick turn Open House, you should consider using First-Class to ensure timely delivery. Within the First-Class postage option, there are Retail rates (Forever Stamp) and Certain Sizes and Minimum Quantities at a Presort First Class Rate and for quantities over 500 a Commercial Rate. All of these are considered first class regardless of cost and are displayed in our First Class pricing options.
