Co-Mail and Distribution
Not so long ago, only large-circulation catalogs could take advantage of presort discounts using co-mail. Now, short-run catalogers can earn significant postal discounts, too. Co-mail is the process of mixing different sized catalogs from multiple sources to produce sorted and bundled packages that are as USPS delivery friendly as possible.
Real Postal Savings
Because your catalogs are pre-sorted and grouped with other catalogs and publications going to the same destinations at the same time, they can enter the mail stream closer to their ultimate point of delivery, bypassing most of the handling by the USPS. The benefits of co-mail include:
- Significant net postage savings
- Controlled and very reliable delivery schedules
- Reduces the chance of damage due to reduced handling
Our weekly co-mail pools can accommodate variable trim sizes, page counts and either perfect bound or saddle stitch catalogs with a quantity of as few as 5,000 pieces. Our co-mail operation is designated a USPS full-service mailer, and offers IMb and web-based client tracking.
