US Mail Tracking is now Free with Every Mailing

You asked for it and at CSG Direct you get it. Now with every single mailing you do, First-Class or Standard mail postage; US Mail Tracking is included at no additional costs.

What that means to you is you can now lookup and track every mailpiece you send and see where it is in the Postal Service at any time, day or night, 24/7.  Just like Fedex and UPS!!

You see, this is such a new service that so very few people in the country have this opportunity to track bulk mail at all.  Those people that do are paying fees and going through 3rd-party vendors to come even close.  So, only CSG Direct customers get this NATIONWIDE!! Fortunately we process direct mail for customers all over the USA so everyone can try this.

Have you ever been told by a mailshop “It’s in the mail” only to get the feeling it really never was?  This is not possible at CSG Direct and we are probably the most accountable direct mailing services company in the country.  Track your print and mail project as it happens through our website, get an email notice as it goes to the Bulk Mail center, then track the pieces as they travel to your customers.

You deserve this kind of honest, hardworking and accountable Direct Marketing and it is only available at CSG Direct, Inc.

New Postal Rates for Letter-Sized Booklets and Self Mailers

If you haven’t already heard, the US Postal service will be implementing new postal rates and standards for folded self-mailers and letter sized booklets – also known as “slim-jims”.

These new standards were scheduled to go into effect with the postal rate increase on May 11, but then delayed after review until Sept. 8th of this year. These new standards pose a “double-whammy” on the industry, as new size templates will need to be implemented for designs and creative for mail-pieces. The new standards will also incur much deeper penalties for mailers who are not compliant.

Instead of getting non-automation rates for non-automation compliant pieces, mailers will likely be getting hit with non-machinable rates for virtually all mailpieces that do not comply with automation standards.

The only exception to this, as I am told, will be non-barcoded mailpieces that otherwise would be automation compliant in regards to size, tabs, folds, paper stock, etc.

The new maximum size for letter sized booklets and folded self- mailers is 6” x 10.5” x .25” thick. The post office will also be enforcing new tab and paper weight standards. Please review the information to avoid problems.

It’s important to stay ahead of the changes that the US Postal Service is continually making. This is why working with mail professionals helps to ensure that your direct marketing projects are prepared and presented without costly or problematic delays.

Your projects deserve the attention that only a true direct mail marketer can provide. Putting addresses on mail pieces as a side business, as many print shops do to enhance revenue, does not qualify them as professional direct marketers.
