Postal changes for non-profit bulk mailers take effect Oct. 6
Sweeping changes introduced by the U.S. Postal Service take effect for non-profit mailers Sunday, Oct. 6. The rules changed for other classes of mail July 1. ISU Printing Services will hold a seminar on the changes from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Monday, Sept. 23, in the Memorial Union Gallery.

The U.S. Postal Service has redefined its mail classes to give price discounts to mailers who prepare their mail using stringent new requirements. Those who don't meet the sorting and documentation requirements could pay the full 32-cent, first-class rates.

The content of the seminar will be same as six seminars sponsored this summer by Printing Services and includes new names for mail classifications, piece vs. presort vs. automation rates, new software sorting and documentation requirements, move-update rules for first-class presort mail, an introduction to design requirements for automation rates and the basics of address list databases.

To register, call 4-3601.
