Select a Mail Class


Does your mailing qualify for commercial pricing?

How many pieces do you send at a time? For instance, you’ll qualify for commercial prices with 500 pieces of First-Class Mail®, 200 pieces of Standard Mail®, or 50 lbs of Standard Mail.

Also, consider the timing of your mailing. If you’re sending an offer that expires, opting for faster First-Class Mail will give customers more time to respond.
