Link Between Mailpiece Design & USPS Regulations To Be Explored at ‘Postal Boot Camp’ Sessions

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

One-day courses offered in New York and New Jersey will show service providers how to produce and process direct mail to meet postal standards cost effectively. 

New York, N.Y. - Printers and mailers are invited to explore the link between mailpiece design and U.S. Postal Service regulations at two one-day Postal Boot Camps in East Hanover, N.J., on May 5 and Albany, N.Y., on May 6. Co-sponsored by the New York Chapter of Epicomm and Printing Industries Alliance (PIA), both courses will be led by George Heinrich, the ‘Postal Professor,’ and will give attendees a basic overall knowledge of the relationship of postal regulations, mailpiece design, and related postage costs, enabling them to better serve their print and mail customers.                                                                                                                                                                                            

A mailing industry veteran for more than 40 years, Heinrich is a featured speaker, teacher, and trainer who provides on-site mail- and fulfillment-related training and operational evaluations. He uses humor to make the content easier to understand and keep the program moving, and his Boot Camp seminars have won Four Star ratings for over a decade. Among the topics he will cover:

  • Meet your uncontrollable partner?the USPS
  • Speaking Postal - BMC, SCF, NCOA, CASS, DPV
  • Classes of Mail
  • Shape Based Processing?Size Does Matter
  • Barcodes and Automation
  • Tracking codes
  • Tabbing Folded Self Mailers
  • How Pre-sort Works
  • Data Management
    • iMb credits
    • Seamless acceptance
    • Transportation Discounts
    • Quality Addressing

Epicomm and PIA recognize and support the integration of the multi-functional aspects of services offered by today’s printers and mailers. The Postal Boot Camps will help companies that provide one or both services understand how direct mail can be produced and processed to meet USPS standards and regulations and achieve the most cost-effective results for their customers. Armed with this knowledge, they can offer more comprehensive and competitive services for today’s print and mailing services buyers.

The May programs will be the only time the Postal Boot Camp will be offered in the metropolitan area this year. The New Jersey session will be held at Paper Mart, 151 Ridgedale Avenue, East Hanover, N.J.; the New York program will be held at Treviso, 257 Washington Avenue Extension, Albany, N.Y.

Postal Boot Camp registration is $150 for the first attendee and $125 for each additional attendee from the same firm. Click here or visit www.pialliance.org for more information or to register, or contact Jim Prendergast at (212) 217-6824 or jwpdirect@gamil.com, or Kim Tuzzo at (716) 691-3211.
