Postal Services


Mail Preparation Tips

*  For timely posting and to prevent mail delays, please place mail in the correct slot in the Postal Services area.  The WSCC mail slot is for interdepartmental mail on the Morristown Campus.  The U.S. mail slot is for stamped mail and mail that requires metering for delivery to the U.S. Postal Service.  Mail to other campuses can be placed in the slots located in the back of the Postal Services lobby.

*  Separating the mail to be metered by departmental account will help expedite the mailing process.  After the mail pieces are separated into sealed and non-sealed bundles, make sure that all envelope flaps are down.  Place rubber bands on the bundles and deposit in the U.S. mail slot.  Mail trays are available in Postal Services for larger mailings.

*  All manila envelopes mailed should be banded together and labeled with either the department name, or department FOAPAL.  Also, securely tape or seal large envelopes taping over the fastening prongs.  NOTE: PLEASE ENSURE THAT TAPE DOES NOT COVER THE POSTAGE AREA ON THE FRONT OF THE ENVELOPE.  Non-taped items may be subject to higher mailing rates.

*  Folded self mailers or newsletters must be put in envelopes.

Standard (Bulk) Mail

General Information

* The postage savings realized through standard (bulk) mail can be up to half of the price of sending mail pieces via first class mail.

* To qualify for standard mail, a mailing must contain 200 identical pieces. Folded self mailers need to be placed in envelopes for mailing.

*  Manila envelopes meeting the standard mail criteria above may also be mailed at slightly higher mail rates, but at a substantial savings over first class.

Simplified Standard Mail (Bulk Mail) Procedures

For timely delivery and qualification of standard mail pieces, follow these steps.

1.  A minimum of 200 identical pieces is required for the standard "bulk" rate.

2.  If the mailing has not been sent through a process to determine incorrect addresses, each bulk mail piece must be labeled with the following:  RETURN SERVICE REQUESTED. Please check with WSCC Postal Services personnel for the correct wording and position on the mail piece.

3.  Organize and bundle the mailing in zip code order.  Make sure the return address for Walters State is on each envelope.  PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR FOAPAL.

4.  Place mail in ZIP CODE ORDER  with the envelope flaps down in mailing trays.  Mailing trays can be obtained from Postal Services.

5.  Bring the mailing to Postal Services as early as possible for processing.  The completed standard mailings must reach the U.S. Postal Services before 3 p.m. on the day it has been completed by Postal Services personnel.
