With the Post Office constantly in the headlines, we get a lot of questions about the future of the mailing industry. We are excited about some of the new opportunities that today's technology has created for the mailing industry. On Tuesday, September 27th Diane Rehm had Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe and the President of the National Association of Letter Carriers Mr. Fredric Rolando on her show. It was a great opportunity to get insight from not only the Postmaster but the President of one of the Unions. Diane asked a lot of great questions that gave us an opportunity to see what is going on with our Postal Service. If you have a chance log onto her website and view the transcript from the show.

USPS requires that every list have a move/update run every 90 days. We provide NCOA (National Change Of Address) as well as other options.
Send us your list and we will provide you with an accurate postage quote.
We are required by the USPS to pay postage in advance before any project can enter the mail stream. If you are mailing under your own permit be sure you have adequate funds in that account. If you are using our permit, a cashiers check must be in hand a minimum of 1 day prior to mailing.
A wide variety of mailing options allow us to handle the distribution of your project. Your Universal Printing team is here to answer questions and assist you with this process.Make Direct Mail Work for you
