Need a mailing list?
Your artwork/design should include the minimum space requirements needed to inkjet address your piece.
Two blank spaces, one for the address (a minimum of 4" wide x 2" tall in the bottom right corner of the mailing panel) and one for the indicia (1" x 1" in the top right corner) are required for postcards and brochure mailers. The inkjet area can not include any printing and no borders are allowed on the bottom or right edges of the mailing panel.
If you are mailing a booklet, other USPS requirements may apply. Please check with us prior to final design, so we can confirm your design meets requirements to mail at the lowest applicable rate.
Consider the class that best suits your budget requirements and expected delivery time for your project. First-class mail delivers within 5 business days and automatically includes returns for undeliverable addresses. If delivery time is not as specific for your project, you may want to consider mailing via Standard Mail, which has a delivery timeframe of up to 20 business days. Note that USPS does not guarantee a delivery date or timeframe for standard or nonprofit standard mail.
If you are eligible to mail as a nonprofit with USPS, you can mail through PrintPlace.com using our nonprofit indicia. Please scroll up to view our Nonprofit Mailing tab under additional info for specific requirements.
We mail your jobs through our local USPS business mail entry unit using our mail permit. In order for PrintPlace.com to mail your job, it must include our indicia. It's not necessary for you to add the indicia to your artwork. We will inkjet the appropriate indicia during the addressing process, according to the postage type you designate.
We accept Excel files and comma delimited text files (.xls, .xlsx, .csv, .txt). Once you place your order, simply upload your mailing list from your My Account page.
When you purchase mailing services, we will review your mailing lists in order to remove duplicate contacts (if requested) and remove any non-automated addresses (if requested). There is no additional charge for reviewing your mailing list to remove these items, but it is an optional service that must be specified at the time you upload your list.
If you request removal of duplicates, keep in mind that the software only looks for exact matches, so "John Smith" versus "Jonathon Smith" will not be recognized as a duplicate record.
After your job prints, direct mail services adds 1-3 business days before your job will mail. Your job will deliver to USPS 1-3 business days after the "ship date" shown in your account, (providing postage has been paid by 2pm CT on the mailing date).
If you have foreign addresses in your mailing list, we can mail those for you. Contact us for more information regarding international mailing.
Once you upload your mailing list, we will process it according to your specifications and enter the amount due, which will display on your My Account page. Postage may be paid via credit card, wire transfer, money order, or cashier's check (note PrintPlace.com charges a 5% administrative and postage handling fee.) Credit card payments can be made directly from your My Account page. For other payment methods, contact us to make arrangements and schedule the mail date for your job.
