Postage Costs

USPS postage costs depend on the size and weight of the item being mailed.

USPS rewards planning and proper organization, and provides discounts for adhering to their requirements. Drake Postal Operations takes advantage of these discounts in two ways:

  1. We use Mail Services, LLC to imprint barcodes on daily mail in white or light-colored #10 envelopes or white large envelopes (9"x12") to save almost $4,000 per year.
  2. Mailings with over 200 pieces and generic information can qualify for postage as low as $0.13 per piece.
