Direct Mailing Services FAQs:

USPS only includes the time a package stays in transit in their estimations. According to USPS:

Standard Mail is processed by the USPS on a “time available” basis. There is NO guaranteed delivery time, only “typicals”. Local mail is typically delivered in about two weeks. Sometimes it’s faster… but sometimes it’s slower.

First Class mail is processed by the USPS on a priority basis; it goes to the front of the USPS line. Typically delivered in 1-4 days.

Choose the class that best suits your budget and project delivery time.

  • Go with Standard Mail if Your Project is NOT Time Sensitive:

    You can expect Standard Mail delivery typically in 10-15 days, so if you have a rapidly approaching event or expiration date in your promotion NEVER choose Standard Mail. Standard Mail is less expensive in postage, so this option might be suitable for your needs if you have enough time for your promotion.

    However please note that standard mail not only takes longer, but it is also not forwarded and not returned if “undeliverable”. It merely goes into the USPS recycling bin.

  • Go with First Class Mail if Your Project IS Time Sensitive:

    If you have a time sensitive project choose First Class Mail which delivers typically within 1-4 business days and automatically includes return service for undeliverable addresses at no charge, specifically: if your party has moved, for a period of 1 year OR if it’s undeliverable, it will be returned to you, again at no charge, with the reason for non-delivery.

The direct mailing service charge is based on the quantity of your mailing order and you’ll be able to calculate it using our convenient Instant Price Calculator.

In addition to your selected print turnaround time, your Direct Mailing pieces will be processed as follows:

  • 500 - 25,000 1 - 3 business days.
  • 30,000 - 60,000 3 - 5 business days.
  • 70,000 - 100,000 5 - 7 business days.

Calculate your campaign's launch time adding the print turnaround to the estimated Direct Mailing time above, according to the number of pieces printed.

No, postage is a separate charge; you’ll be able to calculate it online with our Instant Price Calculator. Bear in mind our postage rates are for FULL AUTOMATION according to USPS guidelines, however with 4OVER4.COM you save even on NON-AUTOMATION projects, when compared to the postage rates the USPS gives you, if you mail with them directly.

Yes we do! Iif you have a Non-Profit account with USPS, please provide a completed Non-Profit 3623 Form and double-check your information to ensure all data is correct. You can download the form here.

If you’re mailing as a Non-profit it is critical that you make sure that the name and address of the Non Profit used as the return address on your print matches the one in the 3623 Form.

Mailing services are charged with your order and are processed exactly as other non direct mailing orders are, that is, once you have Approved your prints and order your card will be charged and the transaction will be completed. 4OVER4.COM will take care of mailing your prints and dispose or ship remainders to you as specified in your order.

Postage is paid along with the printing cost and shipping cost (if applicable), after you approve your order. Bear in mind our postage rates are for FULL AUTOMATION according to USPS guidelines, however with 4OVER4.COM you save even on NON-AUTOMATION projects, when compared to the postage rates the USPS gives you, if you mail with them directly.

You can choose to discard them or to have them shipped to you. (UPS rates apply)

Let's avoid that from happening ! To benefit from the maximum amount of postal discounts, make sure to leave us the blank 2.5" x 4" address area the USPS asks for and a blank 1.25 x 1.25 area in the top right corner for the postal indicia. That's it!

As you can see above, USPS requires a 1.25” X 1.25” indicia area and a 2.5" x 4" addressing area. In most cases this is not a problem as the print area is much larger than the indicia and addressing area combined; however, when printing on 4”X6” postcards a significant portion of the card must be reserved for addressing and indicia.

If your artwork doesn’t meet the USPS Automation criteria, you will be charged USPS non-automation rates. Your pricing will be adjusted if your artwork fails Automation.

  • First Class Presorted automation on a 4" x 6" is 0.305 cents. If your design does not meet automation design criteria, the postage will be 0.335 cents/each
  • First Class Presorted automation on other sizes up to 6" x 11" is 0.455 cents. If your design does not meet automation design criteria, the postage will be 0.485 cents/each

Either way, without 4OVER4.COM handling your direct mail, you pay 0.35 cents for 4”x6” postcard and 0.50 cents to mail any other size. Save with 4OVER4.COM on all sizes and on Automation and Non-Automation jobs!

Direct Mailing Services FAQs:

USPS requires a standard 1.25”X1.25” Indicia area and a 4”X2.5” addresing area. In most cases this is not a problem as the print area is much larger than the indicia and addressing area combined; however, when printing on 4”X6” postcards a significant portion of the card must be reserved for addressing and indicia.
