When planning for a 3rd class (or bulk mailing), please allow enough time for mailing. Third class is one of the slowest ways to send mail; that is one of the reasons the cost is low. In addition, because of the discounted rate, mailers must adhere to restrictions and acceptance rules not applied to mail sent with First Class postage.
Direct Mail Solutions will review the item to insure that it meets the standards required by the post office and will give you an approximate cost for mailing. If you decide to proceed, Direct Mail Service will need your mailing list in an excel file so they can apply the names and addresses to the pieces. You can email them the list as an attachment.
If your mailing is produced in-house (BU Copy Center), Direct Mail Solutions will come to the Mail Room to pick it up. If it is designed through the BU Marketing and Communications Department and printed by an outside source, the pieces should be sent to Direct Mail Solutions from the printer (see address below). Once Direct Mail Solutions has received the order and mailing list, they will address and apply the appropriate routing bar code to each piece. The mailing is typically completed within three days.
Should you have questions or need further assistance, the contact person at Direct Mail Solutions is Jerry Gately, 630-653-6863 or firstname.lastname@example.org
