Bulk mail

Contact us before your mail piece is printed for guidelines on meeting Postal Service regulations. Send a sample or mock-up so we can help ensure you receive the best postage rates.

If you are producing the mailing yourself, send us a standard University of Iowa requisition that has your nine-digit mail code and the number of pieces in the mailing written on it along with the mailing. If Printing Services will be delivering the mailing to us, send us a requisition when you place your printing order. Alternatively, you may include the mailing instructions on your printing requisition and send a copy of it to us. Be sure write on your requisition that the job should be delivered directly to Mailing Services. Then call to let us know it is coming. We will process it and deliver it to the Post Office.

Metered mail

You will need a departmental account to have mail metered. Download, complete, and send to us the form for requesting a departmental mail-code card. The card will have your mail account number and a bar code, which we scan before metering. When you send mail to be metered, simply bundle it and attach the card to the bundle.
