Bulk mail should only be considered when shipping over 200 pieces of identical (size, weight, and shape) mail at once to an off-campus location. If your department has never sent a bulk mailing, you should contact Spartan Printing for help in creating the return address and Indicia for Bulk Mail.
Preparing the Return Address and Indicia for Bulk Mail
Return address must contain the following:
- • Line 1 - University Name
- • Line 2 - Department Name
- • Line 3 - Room Number and Building Name
- • Line 4 - P.O. Box Number
- • Line 5 - City, State, and Zip +
Please address your items in Landscape orientation. You must use the indicia printed in the right-hand corner. You cannot use a “BULK RATE” stamp only.
Brochures must be tabbed in center at the top if 70# text or greater. If below 70#, 2 tabs are required for a single sheet. Do not staple. All pieces in the mailing must be the same size, weight, and content.
Please contact Spartan Printing for questions about the weight (#) of your text. They can be reached at (336) 334-5220 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sorting Your Bulk Mail for Postal Services
Mailing pieces must be sorted as follows with counts shown on the Bulk Mail Requisition Form. If your pieces are not properly sorted, your postal account will be charged $25/hr to correct the mailing.
Sort to following NC first 3 digits of zip codes:
- • 270, 271, 272, 273, 274
- • All Other Zip Codes
