Examples of Lettermail:

  • Any other mail you choose to send which meets the applicable qualifications

Lettermail falls into two categories:

  • Standard Lettermail is mail that meets our requirements as discussed in the Size requirements section.
  • Other (Non-standard and Oversize Lettermail) is mail that doesn't qualify as Standard Lettermail and doesn't exceed the maximum requirements shown in the Size requirements section.

Please note: Lettermail with a postal indicia and tendered with an Order (Statement of Mailing) is subject to the General Terms and Conditions.
