Postage $aver for
Bound Printed Matter Software

Low-cost Bound Printed Matter software that makes it easy to save postage on books and catalogs!


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, unlike Marketing Mail which is limited to pieces one pound or less.

For Bound Printed Matter, there's no minimum quantity per shipment, but the lowest prices are if you send 300 or more identical pieces at one time. You can check out rates here.

Bound Printed Matter rates can be used for flat-sized mail or for parcels. Flat-sized Bound Printed Matter is generally anything up to 20 ounces that is flexible and no more than 3/4" thick. Parcels are anything heavier, thicker, or hard-bound or boxed.

Use our Postage $aver Pro software for Bound Printed Matter flats, or Postage $aver for Parcels for Bound Printed Matter parcels. We offer a special bundle price if you need both.

Here's what our software does for you:

√ Sorts your mailing list file as required by USPS to qualify for low Bound Pinted Matter rates.

√ Prints USPS tracking labels for parcels, or, for flats, prints on standard address label sheets or directly on your mail pieces.

√ Prints easy-to-follow instructions for which pieces go in which sacks for each specific mailing, and tells you how much postage you're saving.

√ Fills out and prints the USPS postage statement form, sack tags and other required paperwork.

√ For parcel mailings, automatically uploads the tracking file ("shipping services file") required by USPS for parcels, and prints the scan form confirming the upload for the post office.
