Published July 28th, 2020 by Arrowmailadmin

Reap major discounts just by Presorting Your Mail! Whether it be a large complex mailing job or your every day mail, presorting your mail is a great way for businesses to save money. All you have to do is let us presort and barcode your mail before it arrives at the United States Postal Services and the savings benefits you!


In the simplest terms, "PRESORTING" means grouping mail and sorting it by ZIP Code. 

At Arrowmail Print + Mail Services, we presort your mail by utilizing a Multi-Line Optical Character Reader (MLOCR) which automates your mail. As we run your mail through our high paced machines, it looks up the address on the mailpiece, verifies the address, sprays a delivery point barcode on the piece, checks that barcode, and sorts it into a pocket for that zip code. All of the pieces that end up in the same pocket are headed in the same destination and get grouped into the same bundle or tray. Once grouped, the mail is loaded into our GPC's and sent to the USPS for straight delivery. The Post Office no longer needs to sort it themselves, so they take it out for delivery right away! 


The main benefit for mailers is that presorting your mail ahead of time, results in lower postage! Can you say hello savings!! 

Because Arrowmail Print + Mail Services is doing some of the extra work for the USPS, in turn it costs the Postal Service less money to process and deliver those pieces of mail. We do the extra step for them and get a discount for helping them process the mail. The USPS, passes on those savings to us, which means we are able to send your mail out at a discounted rate. Ultimately giving us postage discounts. 

We in turn, pass a portion of these volume discounts to you!
