Bulk Mail Support

July 1, 2020

The College no longer supports county or departmental bulk mailings. If you choose to continue to send bulk mailings, here are some things to consider:

    • If you currently have a permit number, you'll keep it. You do not need to reapply for a permit.
    • Because you are no longer linked to the EPS account, you have two options for funding your mailings: 1.) Start making deposits to your permit imprint account (this account already exists) at your local post office, or 2.) pay for your mailings by check.
    • You can download postage statement, PS Form 3602NZ: https://about.usps.com/resources/forms.htm.
    • Your local post office can help you calculate your postage for the first time.
    • You will be responsible for paying your yearly permit fee. You should receive a letter letting you know when it is due from your local post office.

Satori:

Your DEITC’s will start to remove Satori from your machines in July. Except for this, your Access databases will be unaffected. If you continue to do bulk mailings (200 or more pieces) without Satori (or another mailing utility), the only discounts you'll be eligible for are the bulk and non-profit discounts.

The USPS offers a free online program called Intelligent Mail Small Business Tool, if you are interested in looking into that. It is an Excel-based utility, which means you'd have to export your filtered list of addresses to Excel before using it. https://postalpro.usps.com/node/767. Please note: This program will only be supported by the USPS, not campus.

We are encouraging everyone to move to e-Newsletters. Please check with Hayley Pierce for some great programs to help with that. hayley.pierce@uky.edu
