Canada Post Lettermail Postage rates above are effective as of January 14, 2019.

Canada Post delivers direct mail under a variety of postal streams, which include:

  • Neighbourhood Mail (formerly known as Unaddressed Admail)
  • Personalized Mail (formerly known as Addressed Admail)
  • Postal Code Targeting
  • Lettermail
  • Business Reply Mail
  • Pubmail (Publications Mail)
  • Letter-post (USA and International)
  • Parcel services.

Each postal stream uses a size/weight pricing structure. As a Canada Post Smartmail Marketing Expert Partner, Troi Mailing Services can pre-print or inkjet a Machineable postal indicia onto each direct mailer. Standard “Machineable” Lettermail with an indicia may then travel at 87 cents per piece, which saves you time, labour and money (versus affixing $1.05 single stamps or meter marks).

How is Lettermail Different From Other Direct Mail Services

Here are a few key takeaways that help differentiate Lettermail from other direct mail services:

  • Lettermail generally refers to informational mail without a sales oriented call-to-action, as opposed to promotional Personalized Mail
  • While Personalized Mail must meet commercial content requirements, Lettermail may be of virtually any nature (informational or promotional)
  • Lettermail is a valuable postal service for time-sensitive direct mail marketing campaigns that do not reach the 100 minimum pieces required for bulk Personalized Mail
  • Lettermail travels as Canada Post’s fastest service, upheld by the “First Class” postage rates below
  • Lettermail postage includes the return-to-sender feature for undeliverable mail pieces if there is a valid return address on the outward face
  • Acceptable Lettermail items include letters, postcards, folded cards, invoices, magnets, reports, photographs and a wide array of products
  • Other Lettermail items that may be classified as Non-Standard, Oversize, or unacceptable include foods, liquids, perishable goods, powders, seeds, etc.
  • Maximum dimensions for Standard Lettermail are 6.1″ x 9.6″ x 0.2″ (thickness) before classified as Oversize

Standard Lettermail Delivery Times:

Major Urban Centres

2 days (Local), 3 days (Within Province), 4 days (National)

Non-major Urban Centres

2 days (Local), 3 days (Within Province), 4 days (National)

If your Lettermail campaign consists of 1,000 mail pieces or more, you are likely eligible for cheaper Incentive Lettermail rates.

When I was searching for a company to handle my mailers, Troi was the first company that came up. I contacted them and I’m glad that I did! I have worked with the Troi Mailing & Timeline Printing team (Peter and Ken) for a couple of years now.

You and your team made it very easy for us and the reason that we kept coming back is because of the service, speed of delivery and the fact that you answer the phone!! Believe me it makes the biggest difference to be able to call and get a quick response.

Wow!! What service! Please convey our thanks to the Troi staff who did such an outstanding job that our BioTechnica trade fair mailing was finished a full 2 days before the promised date.
