Bad news! By itself, your mail probably doesn’t qualify for the best postal discounts.
What can you do, to save on postage?

Next, your mailing is processed with other mailings on high speed sorting equipment.
Your mail is mixed (or commingled) with other mailings … and you qualify for the lowest postage rates!
It might seem weird mixing your mail with other mailings, but that’s what happens at the USPS anyway.
Comminglers get such great postage rates for doing this upfront work for the post office.
Lastly, your mail is weighed, wrapped, certified by an on-premise USPS official, and dropped deep into the mail stream.
