  • What is Mail Automation?

We're glad you asked! By utilizing a folder inserter, you can streamline the entire mailing process with just a few clicks. A folder inserter simplifies the folding, inserting, and delivery of crucial business communications such as invoices and statements. It significantly reduces mailing errors, including the inadvertent sending of incorrect mail to customers, especially in industries that handle sensitive customer, client, or patient information. When paired with mail automation software, you can significantly reduce errors and improve the entire process of preparing mail for your customers.

  • Do you have information on prices for bulk mailing? And presorting? Is there a minimum number for presorting?

Presorting is when you group your mail pieces by zip code before you send them in order to lower postage costs. Your postage costs are reduced because you’re helping out the Postal Service save money on their postage processing and delivery. Usually, there's a 500-piece minimum for First-Class Mail. It's 200 for Marketing Mail. It's best to consult a mail expert or contact the USPS for your specific mailings.
