Postage $aver software apps for USPS Bound Printed Matter


USPS has a special discount category for "bound printed matter", like catalogs and books. With the Bound Printed Matter category, you can save postage on mail up to 15 pounds per piece. There's no minimum quantity per shipment, but the lowest prices are if you send 300 or more identical pieces at one time.

That's great, because regular bulk mail ("Marketing Mail") gets expensive for heavier pieces, and is limited to pieces that weigh less than one pound.

Like all USPS discounts, you have to do some of the work for them. But don't worry, Postage $aver software takes care of that for you. If sorts your pieces as USPS requires, fills out and prints the paperwork and special tags for the sacks, and prints your labels in sack order. It even prints out instructions for each mailing, that you can follow to make bundling and sacking easy.

Bound Printed Matter has two different size categories, that unfortunately are prepared very differently. So, depending on what you are mailing, we have two different products to prepare your mailing.

If what you are mailing (including any wrapping or container) is: then it's a "FLAT". Take a look at Postage $aver Pro.

If what you are mailing (including any wrapping or container) is: then it's a "PARCEL". Take a look at Postage $aver for Parcels.

If you mail some of each, you can save by buying Postage $aver Pro and Postage $aver for Parcels together!
