USPS OFFERS DISCOUNT ON POSTAGE WITH MOBILE BAR CODE PROMOTION

Business mailers can get three percent off on postage during the United States Postal Service’s mobile barcode promotion. Here at UH, our very own UH Printing and Postal Services can provide this service to our campus and assist businesses in creating a QR Code.

The promotion offered from July 1 to August 31, 2011 will give a discount on presorted and automation mailings of first-class mail cards, letters and flats as well as standard mail flats and cards (including nonprofit).

Mobile barcodes, or Quick Response (QR) codes, is a two-dimensional black and white square pattern that can be read by QR code readers and smartphones. The codes are normally encrypted with text, a URL or other data and is becoming commonly used in marketing materials.

Once UH Printing creates the QR code, UH Postal must do the mailings and submit the USPS mailing system electronically to the USPS in order to receive the discount during the 60-day promotional period. Mailers must be sure to follow the key requirements to participate in the promotion:

  • Each mail piece must contain the QR code

  • The barcode must be used for promotional, marketing or educational purposes relevant to the contents of the mail piece

  • Postage must be paid with a permit imprint and electronic documentation must be submitted to PostalOne!
