UH Postal Services has a Bulk Mail Services section to more economically address and sort large mailings for University departments. We provide the following services:

  • Folding - Can fold up to 3 sheets at one time
  • Inserting - Can insert up to 4 pieces per envelope
  • Inkjetting - printing names, addresses and barcodes directly on the mail piece
  • Labeling - self-adhesive labels (must be "1 across" continuous form)
  • Tabbing - Apply wafer seals to mail pieces
  • Sort, bag and tie mail into bundles (for Standard bulk - Non-Profit mail)
  • Sealing envelopes and metering of postage (for large mailings)

Before a large mailing gets too far into the planning stage, be sure to include the UH Postal Addressing Specialist in your mailing arrangements. This person can be of assistance to you to ensure your mailing program is cost effective, efficient and timely.

Study the price list in this section. If you need any of these services, please call Bulk Mail Services at X3-5825. Compare our prices and the total cost of the job to an outside mailing service and see that we can save you MONEY.
