Business Reply Mail is a special postage rate available for properly formatted and barcoded envelopes. It is a cost-effective means for University departments to receive mail responses to surveys, information requests, and other solicitations. Specially formatted, pre-paid, and pre-addressed cards or envelopes are provided to respondents so they can easily return requests. The University maintains a First Class Business Permit for this purpose and calculates the department cost based on the number of responses.
Bulk Mail (Standard [A] Mail) is an official classification of mail that meets requirements to qualify for discounted rates. Rates are dependent on content, size, shape, weight, zip code, and quantity. A number of design and processing elements are needed for a mailing to qualify for these special rates, but if done properly, mass mailings can be an efficient way to recruit new students, market medical services, distribute information, and solicit donations. Contact University Mail Services at 585-275-1013 or email us to consult with our mailpiece experts.
