Direct Mail Services: Postage Rate Increase

It’s almost here!

The price increase to first class lettermail is less than 1 month away.

As of March 31, 2014, for Lettermail weighing less than 30g:

  • Consumers purchasing single stamps will pay $1.00 per piece
  • Consumers purchasing rolls of stamps will pay $0.85 per piece
  • Businesses using a postage meter or indicia will pay $0.75 per piece

As direct mail specialists we can help minimize your postage rate increase through the use of our metering services as well as our postal indicia.

Another way to keep your postage costs low is by avoiding unnecessary surcharges. Canada post has a category of mail known as Machineable mail. This stream of mail travels at the lowest overall postage cost. The mail needs to adhere to Canada Posts machineable mail requirements in terms of artwork placement and address format. Once your mail is deemed machineable, it will in turn allow Canada Post to run your materials through their address readers within their processing centers. The end result is less handling by Canada Post and a quicker turn around time for your mail at the lowest overall postage cost.

We would be more than happy to help keep your direct mail campaigns machineable and your postage costs LOW!

Let us help you execute your direct mail campaigns! Send us your envelope and or postcard design for us to review and advise accordingly. All you have to lose are those unnecessary postage costs you may end up paying with non machineable mail.

The same principle applies with your Addressed Admail correspondence. We’ll provide you with direct mail solutions that will enable your advertising mail to generate a greater return on your investment.

Mail fulfillment is our specialty! Our Canada Post Expert partner status insures you will receive expert advice that is just a phone call away.

We’ll Keep you POSTED!
