MAILINGS

OUTGOING MAIL

All outgoing USPS mail must be accompanied by a completed mail request form.  This form has to be completed in order to facilitate the chargeback process for your department.  Failure to complete the mail request form will lead to delays in processing your outgoing mail. 

BULK MAIL

The university has a postal service bulk mailing permit (628), which may be used to send standard-size letters and printed materials at a reduced rate. For questions on Permit 628 use and correct Indicia placement, please contact the Office of Marketing and Communication at 288-7448.  There are strict guidelines that need to be followed in order for a mailing to qualify as bulk.

  • A minimum of 200 pieces or 50 pounds in total weight if fewer than 200 pieces.
  • All pieces must be identical in size and weight.
  • Each piece must have a minimum of a five-digit ZIP code.
  • No foreign addresses are allowed.
  • All pieces must be in Zip code order.

Mail Services must give prior written approval before the bulk mailing is processed in order to ensure there will be proper funding in the United States Postal Service (USPS) account.

Bulk mailing

In order for Mail Services to be able to process your bulk mailing, the 628 Indicia must already be applied to each mail piece. Please contact the Office of Marketing and Communication at 288-7448 for more information and guidelines in applying the indicia.
NOTE: Mail Services no longer applies postage.


Please contact the Office of Marketing and Communication (OMC) in the planning stages of your mailing. OMC knows the specific postal guidelines that need to be met in order to ensure your mailing qualifies not only for the lowest possible cost to Marquette, but also it reduces the chance of the mail being misdirected or returned.
