How much does postage cost?
Postage depends on many factors - the size of your piece, the quantity, where your pieces are being mailed to, and
the mail class you choose. Once we receive your mail list, we will process your list using USPS-approved software to determine
the exact cost of postage. From there, we will send you an invoice for postage that must be paid 3 days prior to
the mail drop date. For a postage estimate prior to placing an order, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
