Whether you’re mailing out a few hundred letters, or a few hundred-thousand, it’s imperative that the addressing is accurate so that the mail reaches its new home safely and without any unnecessary speed bumps.
The best way to ensure your envelopes and selfmailers are compatible with machine automation — and they don’t end up in a pile for extra handling or redelivery by Canada Post — is to ensure you follow the rules for standardized addressing.
Whether your mail is being sent domestically or internationally, to a civic address or a rural route address, you must follow specific formatting requirements to meet the standards of Canada Post. When you choose Troi Mailing Services for your mailing needs, you won’t need to worry about these specifications as our data processing service takes care of the cleanup and formatting.
Rather than attempting to format your addressed mail on your own, we can make it easier for you. You can contact us directly or use these Canada Post mail templates as a guide to creating your standardized mail. These formats work seamlessly with Canada Post’s processing and delivery services.
These templates include the exact position of the:
If the elements mentioned above are appropriately aligned, your selfmailer or envelope printing and distribution should be relatively straightforward. However, getting the dimensions right isn’t the only thing you need to keep in mind. Apart from getting the positioning right, the correct formatting of the address is also essential.
Addressing envelopes can get complicated, especially for businesses handling large volumes. It’s better for you, as a business owner, to let our professional team handle the formatting and distribution to minimize the chances of your mail getting lost or being put on the side for redelivery due to some trivial technicality-based misunderstanding.

You all did a great job working with me on the project. Now that the sale is being opened up to the public we are shifting dollars into TV and digital. Glad to know I have a reliable, fast, competent and creative private mail team to call on when work arises for Tiger in Toronto.
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.
