BULK MAILINGS MUST BE CERTIFIED. NEED HELP?
The United State Postal Service now requires that all bulk mailings of 200
pieces or more be certified through their National Change of Address
database. This means that the USPS will no longer accept pre-labeled bulk
mail pieces. Imaging Services can and will be able to certify your mailing
list and print either labels or directly on your mailing piece and provide
certification to the Post Office. Call us for assistance today.
