Deliver Your Message to Global Audiences
We prepare bulk mailings with up to 25,000 pieces of mail for University departments and offices. Bulk mailings can be a great way to send University marketing, recruitment, admissions, and alumni materials to people anywhere in the world.
Bulk Mail Requirements
The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) maintains strict requirements for preparing and packaging bulk mail. Bulk mail items may be rejected if they do not adhere to USPS requirements.
To qualify, bulk mail must:
- have at least 200 pieces
- weigh at least 50 pounds
The team in Print and Mail Services pride ourselves on knowing the current regulations for bulk mail. We happily work with any office, department, or organization to ensure your publications and mailings adhere to all USPS standards.
Bulk Mail Requests
Make all requests using the Bulk Mail Request Form, which is accessible in the campus-wide K-drive file folder. Complete and submit the form at least 2 weeks before your target date. Send all requests by departmental or Print and Mail Services email.
When sending your bulk mail request by email, attach your spreadsheet, request form, and, if feasible, a sample piece of mail. We can provide envelopes, or you can provide them for your mailing.
Drop off days for bulk mailings are Monday - Friday from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.
