Standard Mailing Preparation

Preparation for Departmental Pick-up

When a department prepares mail for pick-up by the mail route personnel, the mail should be separated by a rubber band, into four sections:

  1. All intra-departmental mail
  2. Stamped, personal mail, and postage paid mail
  3. Mail to be metered. (Be sure a red accounting card, or an account number is attached to this mail.
  4. Standard Mail, (previously called bulk mail). This mail must be clearly marked anda accompanied by a break-down of zips and a total count if its machinable and sorted and banded if not machinable.  Check for further instructions under Standard Mailing Preparation at the end of this web site.

When the mail is properly sorted, it assists us in preventing delays in the processing.
When outgoing mail is run through the meter the delivery address is not read by the clerk running the mail, this is why it is important that the mail be sorted into on campus, and off campus mail. It is not necessary to have mail in zip code order or separated into Rock Hill and out of town, if it is first class mail.
