All things USPS First Class Mail, Certified Mail and FedEx
Tag: Certified Mail
Certified Mail is an add on service for USPS First-Class Mail. A stamp, or first-class postage, needs to be purchased and and additional fee is charged for Certified Mail, which provides proof of mailing, mail-piece tracking and proof of delivery. An option available with Certified Mail is a Return Receipt which is basically the signature of the person who received the letter from the mail carrier. Undeliverable Certified Mail is returned to the sender.
Can you send mail on USPS postal holidays? Sure you can!
Let’s face it, we don’t all get the same paid holidays that the United States Postal Service (USPS) employees get. In 2012, the USPS is closed for 10 holidays.
However, if you are working and you need your mail to go out, LetterStream has the ability to mail your letters on many postal holidays. While the post office front counters are closed and mail carriers are off, there are some holidays that the post office back office is still on duty.
So, “Yes”, the USPS accepts and processes our mail on President’s Day (Washington’s birthday), Columbus Day, Veterans’ Day and MLK Day.
If you are like us and are working those days, feel free to send your mail to us and we’ll get it mailed on the Holiday for you!
We were contacted the other day to help one of our customers with a fairly large Certified Mail job.
It wasn’t our largest USPS Certified Mail project, but with more than23,000 certified letters, it was still a lot of certified letters (see actual picture).
In addition to printing, folding and inserting the certified mail for our client, we also licensed a cobranded version of our website so their clients could log in and check the status and retrieve signatures of any piece of mail.
The job went out quickly and easily and provided everyone involved complete USPS tracking information as well as electronic signatures, matched with the mail piece.
Big or small, whether you’ve got a single certified letter or thousands, our automated processes will make it easy.
Don’t you hate it when gyms keep charging your credit card even after you cancel your membership?
One good way to get the charges to stop is to send a cancellation letter via USPS Certified Mail.
Google “gym cancelation letters” and you’ll find numerous articles relating to how to stop gyms from charging your credit card on a monthly basis, and they almost all have one thing in common… they state that your letter should be sent via Certifed Mail.
We’ve mailed scores of cancellation letters via LetterStream.com, as well as our partner site, OnlineCertifiedMail.com. Once you create your letter, send it Certified Mail online without a costly trip to the post office.
We must admit, we like creating unique solutions for our customers.
A recent solution involved a client who was working with physical documents that needed to be re-mailed to individuals. Their documents were stamped with recording dates and were coming back from the county recorder’s office. These officially recorded documents needed to be mailed via Certified Mail to their clients and the task represented more work than they wanted to take on.
Our unique solution? We allowed them to create a cover sheet with the recipients’ address on it and then scan the document to us via their copier/scanner. Our software automatically received the document, read the address on the cover page and created the mailing. It worked well!
