3rd Class (Bulk Mailing) Procedures

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.

Preparing to send a third class mailing

To get an estimate on the cost of your mailing, contact Envision3 by email at support@envision-3.com providing them with the following information.

A description of the item to be mailed.  For example, postcards, #10 envelopes with letter, etc, the piece dimensions (6x9, 4x6, etc.) and the number of pieces to be mailed.  (If possible, scan a copy of the piece and attach it to the email or fax a copy to 630-825-1201).

The actual or approximate date of the mailing you are sending.

The name of the department sending the mailing, the name of a contact person with their email address and phone number.

Envision3 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, Envision3 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), Envision3 may come to the Mail Room to pick it up.  This is done on a case by case basis.  If it is designed through the BU Marketing and Communications Department and printed by an outside source, the pieces should be sent to Envision3 from the printer (see address below).  Once Envision3 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 Envision3 is Jerry Gately, 630-825-1200 or jgately@envision-3.com
