Bulk Mailing Service

The term "bulk mail" refers to larger quantities of a specific mail piece prepared for mailing at reduced postage. Bulk prices are lower than "single-piece" prices. "Single-piece" means that you pay the full postage price; when you put a stamp on a letter, you're paying the single-piece postage. Many mailers pay single-piece postage even though they are doing large mailings. Why? Because they don’t want to do any extra preparation work—they don’t have the time, or it’s just not cost effective for their business.

APSU Post Office is set up and has the equipment to assist you with your bulk mailing needs. 

For any questions please feel free to contact us at (931) 221-6378 or email us at APSUPostOffice@apsu.edu.
