815print.com Mailing Services

How to place an order that requires Mailing Services:

    1. Go to the page of the item that you would like to purchase.  The item must offer Mailing Services (For Example: “SHORT-RUN Standard Postcards with Mailing Service”).

    2. Choose the options for your item, and select what “Postage Class” you want to use for your mailing. Your choices are First Class, Standard, or Non-Profit.

    3. “Add to Cart” your item.  In your Shopping Cart, you will see an “Add Files” button next to your item.  Upload both your Art Files and your Mailing List here.  If you need assistance creating art files, please contact us for graphic design support or services.

    4. Proceed to Checkout and place your order for the Printing and Mailing Services of your item.  PLEASE NOTE: Postage is a separate cost and is determined once we review your mailing list.

    5. Once we receive your order, we will review your Art Files and Mailing List.  We will contact you if there are any issues with your files. If your files are properly prepared, we will email you a PDF proof of your item for approval before printing.  After your approval of the PDF proof, your item will be printed and then sent to the Mailing Services Department where addresses will be imprinted from your Mailing List and final Postage amount determined.  PLEASE NOTE: Upon request, we can provide a PDF Mailing Proof showing a sample address and its position/location on your item prior to imprinting the addresses.

    6. Once the Mailing Department has determined the total Postage amount for your job, we will contact you for Postage payment.  PLEASE NOTE: Postage must be paid by Check before we deliver to the Post Office (USPS).

    7. Finally, when all Mailing Services are completed, your item will be delivered to the USPS to be mailed to the addresses provided in your Mailing List.

▸ Data Processing of One (1) List
