Preparing Mail for metering

  1. Each mail piece must have a return address
  2. Use self-adhesive barcodes on your mail pieces to help us track expenses. If you need these, contact us
  3. Sealing
    1. Standard letters do not have to be sealed as this can happen at the time of metering
    2. Larger envelopes can be sealed at the time of metering if pre-glued.
    3. Pieces exceeding ¾” in thickness cannot be sealed automatically on the metering equipment. They should be sealed prior to giving them to Mail Services.
    4. Self Mailers or booklets to international addresses should be placed in a sealed envelope with the country name in capital letters as the bottom line of the address.
  4. Place mail in container for pickup
    1. Place pieces facing in same direction for fastest metering
    2. Request postal containers they day before mailing if you are preparing a large mailing: use Trays for letters and Buckets for larger types.
  5. Request a special Mail pick up for large items or large quantities that do not fit in your mail bag. Call x3770 before noon for same day pick up service
