If you send a significant amount of direct mail, then you are likely budgeting a substantial amount of money for postage costs in your advertising budget.
One way to save money on mailing costs is to explore your commingling options. Not only can you shave a little off the postage budget, but you can often reach recipients faster when you commingle your mail.
What is Commingling Mail?
Did you know that most mail you drop off at the post office usually moves around multiple times before arriving at the closest post office of its destination? Some sources estimate each piece of mail travels six times after being dropped at your local USPS Post Office. These extra steps create additional handling which means more time and money. Commingling is the solution to eliminate a few steps, reduce costs, and speed up the delivery process.
How does it Work to Commingle Mail?
Commingling systems is comprised of hardware and software used for sorting and processing mail. Commingled mail means your mail combines with mail from other companies that is headed in the same direction. Because the US Postal Service offers reduced postage rates in exchange for saving them extra steps and shipping, you’re able to maximize these discounts and savings. Together, the mail is shipped directly to the intended region.
