University Mail Services manages the USPS Bulk Mail Permit for the University. This permit allows departments to mail larger quantities of mail at a discounted rate of up to 50% off the per piece postage rate. University Mail Services charges a nominal per piece fee on all bulk mailings. Effective Aug. 1, 2022, this bulk mailing fee will increase from 2 to 3 cents per piece. This rate increase reflects increased contract and overhead costs for maintaining the bulk mail permit for the University. Please note this fee is incorporated into our bulk mail postage billing and will not appear as a separate itemized cost.
For more information about using the University’s bulk mail permit, visit the University Mail Services website. Bulk mailings must consist of at least 200 uniform pieces, and bulk mail requests should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the mailing date.
Please share this information with the appropriate personnel in your department. Please contact University Mail Services at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the bulk mail permit or other mail services.
