How to Trim Your Postage Costs
4 Feb, 2016. 0 Comments. Mailing, Saving Money. Posted By: Tina DeJarld

Postal budgets aren’t what they used to be. But many messages are better received in a mailbox than an inbox. What to do?

Think Standard Mail rather than First-Class Mail.

Standard postage costs run about half of First-Class. This can generate significant savings, especially on large print runs. Of course, as with anything in life, there’s no free lunch.

With Standard Mail, you need to build in a little extra time for your piece to be delivered — up to a week to be safe. USPS offers no guaranteed delivery schedule because Standard Mail is processed on a “time available” basis.

First-Class is still the way to go for urgent pieces. But if cost is the priority, it’s worth it to plan ahead and take advantage of the Standard rate.
