Ever feel like there aren't enough hours in the day to accomplish everything you need to do? You're busy enough already. The last thing you need to worry about is finding the time to swing by your printer, pick up your mail pieces, and deliver them to the post office for distribution. Let us handle that for you. The folks in our mailing services department work closely with the Postal Service. We know all the ins-and-outs and can make sure your materials go out when you want them to... without any hassles, headaches, or delays. So relax. We have you covered.
Need your mailer to go out on a specific date? Just let us know, and we'll make sure it gets printed in time, then work with the Postal Service to ensure it's distributed on the date you request.
Post Office Delivery
When your mailing is completed, you are welcome to pick it up at our office, or we can deliver it directly to the post office for you. We are experts at completing USPS paperwork (which is often complicated and confusing), and we have a lot of experience working with the bulk mail department at the post office. We strongly suggest you allow us to work with the post office on your behalf. There is a small cost for our service, but we can save you a lot of time and possible frustration. Allowing us to handle your mailing project from concept to post office delivery is a smooth, one-step process that saves you time, money, and stress.
The United States Postal Service (USPS) offers significant discounts for volume business mailings and nonprofit organizations. These discounts apply to basically all types of business mail and can significantly reduce the cost of postage at your company.
When you work with a mailing services specialist at our printing firm, you can be sure you'll receive the lowest postage rate and the best possible delivery times.
Unlike traditional mailing houses, we're unique because we have the ability to take your mailing piece from design through delivery to the post office. We specialize in mailing services project management. Why would you want to have your mailing project designed at one place, printed at another, and then mailed at a third place? We can save you significant time—and hassles—when you let us manage the entire print and mail process for you.
Qualifying for discounts
To qualify for mailing discounts, your mailer must meet certain guidelines set by the USPS. Generally speaking, your piece must meet size restrictions (length, width, and thickness), weight restrictions, and design/layout requirements.
A qualified nonprofit organization is entitled to significant mailing discounts over standard mailing rates.

Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM)
EDDM is a service provided by the United States Post Office to promote direct mail. These printed mail pieces must be at least 11" x 4" or 6" x 9" in order to be mailed as EDDM, which features an approximate 19 cent postage rate per piece.
EDDM pieces are not mailed to specific addresses, but are delivered to everyone on a specified postal route. In order to figure out the routes, just log onto the USPS website and look under EDDM. There you can find a map of any city and each mail route in each city. You can pick which mail routes you want to canvass with your mailing, direct AccuColor to print the specified number of pieces, bundle them according to USPS regulations, and send them through the mail!
These have been very effective for new business mailings, political campaigns, and anywhere you want to target a specific area of any city in the US.
