Postage prices depend on the size, weight, and thickness of your printed piece, as well as the class of service you choose (First Class or Standard).

Here are some basic terms and guidelines on direct mail services:

Presorted means the mailing software sorts the list by ZIP code – first by the 5 digits of the ZIP code and then by the first 3 digits, then everything else is “mixed.”

Automated means a barcode is printed on the piece. The barcode is a series of bars that is read by the postal machines, and it represents the delivery point address. The space needed to inkjet the barcode is 4” wide by 2” tall. Preparing mail automated presorted gets you the cheapest postage.

If there is no room for a barcode, the mail may be prepared presorted, which will still give you cheaper postage rates than if it is not presorted. That’s considered non-automated presorted.

Machinable means the mail piece can run through the postal machines and the address can be read by the machines. This refers to the size of the piece and the ratio of the length vs. the height of the piece.

Non-machinable means the size ratio does not meet requirements to be read by the postal machines and a postal employee must read the address and process the mail manually. This postage is more expensive.
