Non Profit, First Class & Periodical mailings

Reed Mail Services processes Full Service IMB (Intelligent Mail Barcode) non profit, First Class and Periodicals mailings for Reed offices. Using your department Excel, Word or Filemaker format address lists, Mail Service addresses cards, envelopes and brochures of many sizes. The mail pieces/ envelopes need to have their design approved by the Reed Public Affairs office to assure that it meets USPS full service specifications. Once the mail piece design is approved, have it printed and sent to Mail Services.

Mail Services addresses department bulk mailings using a high speed inkjet address printer or label printer. We CASS certify and run NCOA on address lists prior to mailing. Full Service mail includes a delivery tracking service that tells you when your mail is arriving at recipient addresses. It also has a free Address Correction Service (ACS). We use both ACS and NCOA to provide the most accurate and economic recipient address. Address updates and corrections are submitted for each mailing we send.

Envelope inserting is available for 1 or 2 sheets into a business sized "machinable" envelope. In most cases we can insert and seal envelopes, address and apply postage and have them in the mail the same day.
