This checklist is a guide for preparing bulk/nonprofit (standard A) mail to meet USPS standards. Items in section one are U.S. Postal Rules and Regulations and are strictly monitored and enforced. Items in section two are university internal policies for handling bulk mail. The Mail Center staff is always willing to assist in providing information about mailings. Departments preparing bulk mailings are responsible for preparation meeting USPS bulk mail requirements and delivery of mailings to the Mail Center. If preparation does not meet U. S. Postal regulations, the mail will be returned to the department for correction.
The low bulk rate is made possible by eliminating sorting ordinarily done by U.S. Postal employees.
Begin early to receive assistance on minimizing postage and processing costs. Contact either the Mail Center or Printing Services to obtain and verify that the return address and indicia on your mail piece meet USPS requirements. Supplies - Obtain supplies from the Mail Center.
