5 POSTAL POINT OF VIEW FOR s Idea Design Mailing List Printing Lettershop Post Office 1990 s Idea Post Office Design Mailing List Printing Lettershop 2000's Idea Post Office Design Mailing Software Mailing List Printing Lettershop In the 1990 s, mailers began looking with an eye for automation at the physical characteristics of the printed pieces that were to be mailed. All printed pieces began to be reviewed at the design stage from a "postal point of view." Mailpieces that were designed to comply with USPS automation requirements resulted in significantly reduced postage costs and experienced an improvement in deliverability. In 2002, every mailer must add Mailing Software into their postal point of view. Mailing lists must be processed through CASS certified software to receive ZIP+4 s and the ability to generate delivery point barcodes. The use of PAVE certified software is required to properly prepare mailings for presentation and acceptance at the USPS and to achieve the lowest postage rates. USPS CASS and PAVE certified mailing software is located in the Mail Processing Center and is an integral part of the services the center provides to all departments.

Improperly prepared labels will be returned to you for correction and/or completion. Labels that are applied must be parallel to the bottom edge of the envelope to be processed by the USPS on automation equipment. Please consult the Mail Processing Center for questions regarding the use of labels.

11 PREPARING YOUR ADDRESS DATA To get the lowest postage and production costs, you must provide your address data to the Mail Processing Center. Please do not print your own labels or label your own mailing. You will incur extra postage charges and your mailing may not qualify for Non-Profit Standard Mail Rates. Send your address data in comma (see How To instructions on the next page) or tab delimited ASCII (plain text) format. Structure your address data so that each address element is in a separate field: addressee, firm name, delivery address, city, state, zip code (5 or 9 digit). In the address data, each address record must have exactly the same number of address elements. If you provide more than one address line for each name, please identify which line is the delivery address. Exclude address records that you do not plan to mail to. If this is not possible, please provide a way to identify these addresses so we can exclude them. Address data can be sent to the Mail Processing Center on 3.5" diskette or as an attachment. to: We strongly recommend that you provide your address data at least one week in advance of your mailing. This allows time to process your data and correct any problem addresses. We must have the final version of your data three days before your planned mailing date. Your address data will be checked and standardized against the USPS national address database. Addresses that do not match will be returned. The Mail Processing Center will attempt to determine why these addresses do not match. The USPS will not deliver mail to addresses that do not match. At your request, we will return to you all addresses that matched and were standardized. Since the standardization process sometimes makes minor changes and corrections to addresses, it may be beneficial for you to make these changes in your original data. Your original data file will also be returned to you without any changes.

12 How to Save an Address Listing in Comma Delimited Format 1. Open file in MS Excel. 2. Be sure that each part of address is in a separate column. (First Name, Last Name, Street, City, State, Zip). 3. Click on File on the Command Toolbar and then Save As. 4. When dialog box appears: Type name of file in File Name. Click on down arrow next to Save As Type and select CSV (comma delimited). ADDRESSES ON YOUR MAILPIECES One decision that must be made on every mailing job is which fields from your address data records to select for printing on the mailpiece. Common constraints are found in the size of the label, insert, window opening, etc. Here are some quick guidelines that are intended to ease your decision making process---at least as far as USPS requirements are concerned. Sample Business Address Format 1. Optional Endorsement Line #ABCDEFG *************5-DIGIT POSTNET Address Block Barcode 3. Mailstop Code (Internal) MSC 789ABCD 4. Attention or Contact Name JOHN SMITH 5. Individual Title VICE PRESIDENT 6. Department, Group, Division Name BINDERY DEPT 7. Business/Firm Name XYZ MAILING INC 8.

13 WHAT IS A BULK MAILING? Non-Profit Standard Mail - Mailings that consists of 200 identical pieces or at least 50 pounds of identical pieces that are specially prepared and sorted in compliance with USPS requirements. Non-Profit Standard Mail usually consists of circulars, brochures, form letters, or other printed pieces that are identical in content and weight. When mailing in BULK, there are several rate categories: Current Per Piece Class Rate (6/30/02) Postage Rate Postage Savings (based on 1st Class) Non-Profit Automation Basic $.144 per piece $.226 per piece Non-Profit Presorted Basic $.165 $.205 Regular Automation Basic $.219 $.151 First Class Automation Basic $.309 $.061 First Class $.370 None Examples: When mailing 10,000 pieces at the Non-Profit Automation rate (.144), the postage cost is $1, vs. $3, at First Class rate (.37). Total postage savings using the Non-Profit Automation rate is $2, For 25,000 pieces, postage savings would be $5,650. ALWAYS consider mailing at the Non-Profit Automation rate rather than First Class rate to achieve the most cost savings for the Institute and your department. AUTHORIZATION TO USE INSTITUTE PERMIT (INDICIA) Permission to use the Institute's permit number should be approved by the Mail Processing Center to insure that the proper form and content is provided to printers and in accordance with U. S. Postal Service regulations. Use of this permit is reserved for mailings that consist of 200 pieces or weighing 50 pounds. The number of pieces to be mailed must be reported to the Mail Processing Center to insure that adequate postage is on deposit to cover the cost of the mailing.

14 HINTS FOR DESIGNING YOUR MAILING Design your mailing to be less than 6.125" H x 11.5" W (oriented to the address) so that it qualifies for the letter rate. Larger pieces are considered flats and are charged a higher postage rate, even if they weigh the same as a letter. Always design your mailing to the specifications in USPS Pub.25 (letter) and Pub.63 (flats), which are available through the Mail Processing Center at no charge. Plastic templates are also available (at no charge) to assist you in your efforts to design your mailpieces to take maximum advantage of USPS discounts: Notice 3-A, Letter-Size Mail Dimensional Standards Template This template is used to determine whether a mailpiece meets the size, shape, aspect ratio, and thickness requirements for automated processing. Notice 67, Automation Template This template is used to obtain more information on automation readability parameters. This clear plastic template simplifies the task of determining whether your mail is automation-compatible, MLOCR-readable, and printed with the correct facing identification mark (FIM) pattern. If your mailing includes a Business Reply Mail (BRM) envelope or card, it must be automation compatible if you plan to send your mailing at the automation rate. The Mail Processing Center provides free design consultation service to help ensure that your mailing will get the best delivery at the lowest postage and production cost. We strongly recommend that you have us look at your mailing design before you print. Please consult the Mail Processing Center before you pre-assemble any part of your mailing.

15 Characteristics for Non-Profit and Presorted Standard Mail: Maximum weight: less than 16 ounces Shape: rectangular Minimum: 3-1/2 inches high, 5 inches long, and.007 inch thick Maximum: 6-1/8 inches high, 11-1/2 inches long, and ¼ inch thick LETTER SIZE MAIL: Length: 5 to 11-1/2 inches Height: 1/2 to 6-1/8 inches Thickness:.007 to.25 inches 6-1/8 Weight: up to ounces 3-1/2" /2 FLAT SIZE: Length: 11-1/2 to 15 inches Height: 6-1/8 to 12 inches Thickness:.25 to.75 inches 12 Weight: less than 16 ounces 6-1/8" 11-1/2" 15 *Automation mail dimensions are different in some cases. Please call the Mail Center Coordinator at Ext for the specifications before your mail piece is printed. For automation rates the mail piece must have an aspect ratio of 13 to 2.5. To calculate the aspect ratio: divide length by height.

17 What is the difference between the Presort Rate and the Automation Rate? Within Non-Profit Standard Rate there are two main rates, the presort rate and the automation rate. Both are sorted by specific postal rules, but other preparation, mail piece design, and addressing requirements must be met.
