Standard Class Bulk Mail Prices

Summer is the hottest season for real estate so if you’re thinking of listing soon, spring is your last opportunity to make those home improvements.

Standard Class Bulk Mail Prices

Prices for Standard Class bulk mail vary according to the many different factors. In any particular bulk mailing, it's likely that different pieces will qualify for different postage prices, even though the pieces may be physically identical.

In general, all pieces in the same tray or sack are charged the same price, since, at least in theory, all pieces in any one tray or sack are handled in the same way and travel the same distance.

One exception, however, is for mailings consisting of barcoded flats. Flats are prepared in "bundles" of a small number of pieces rubber-banded together, which are then placed into sacks. For barcoded flats only, the postage price for any piece is determined by which bundle it is in rather than by which sack it is in.

When can you use these prices?

Standard Class is an inexpensive way to mail a group of identical pieces, if you're not in any particular hurry for the pieces to reach their destination. Standard Class mail is processed after First Class, and typically arrives within a few days (for local mail) to as much as a few weeks (for mail travelling cross-country).

Each mailing at Standard Class prices must consist of at least 200 pieces. (Exception: If each piece weighs more than 4 ounces, the mailing will meet the minimum if the total mailing weighs at least 50 pounds.)

Standard Class cannot contain personalized information, except for name and address. Bills, statements, and other material where each recipient receives a different piece of mail cannot be sent using Standard Class prices. You can still receive a postage discount for such pieces by sending them as presorted First Class but the price will not be nearly as low as with Standard Class (except for certain postcards, where the First Class price is actually cheaper. See below.)

Mail must be within the following weight limits in order to be eligible for Standard Class prices:

  • For nonbarcoded letters, flats and parcels, each piece may not weigh more than 16 ounces.

  • For barcoded letters, each piece may not weigh more than 3.5 ounces.

  • For barcoded flats, each piece may not weigh more than 16 ounces.

Special Prices for Postcards

Cards below a certain size qualify for a special First Class postcard postage price. If you are sending barcoded postcards smaller than the size shown below, and you have at least 500 pieces in each mailing, you should use the First Class postcard price instead of the Standard Class letter price (except for nonprofit mailers, who still receive a better discount using Standard Class nonprofit prices.)

Cards are eligible for the First Class postcard price if:

  • The card is rectangular in shape; AND,

  • The height of the card is from 3 1/2 inches to 4 1/4 inches; AND,

  • The width of the card is from 5 inches to 6 inches.

If you are mailing cards that are eligible for this special First Class postcard prices, please see our page on First Class prices.

If your cards are larger than the size shown above, you should use the Standard Class letter or flat price, as applicable according to the size of the card. There is no special postcard price in Standard Class.

What are the prices?

Standard Class mail has different price categories depending on the size and shape of your mail piece. See our page on letters vs. flats if you are not sure what category your mail piece fits into. Note that the category is determined by the size of the mail piece, not by its content.

The terms "ADC" and "AADC" used in the charts below refer to an Area Distribution Center, which is facility that handles mail for many 3-digit areas. Typically an ADC might cover all of several sparcely-populated states, or one part of a more populated state.
