Every year, we spend countless hours staying on top of postal regulations to ensure that every piece we send out makes it to the target audience--and it gets there for as little as possible. In fact, we are so focused on proper mailing procedures, we are the only USPS Certified Full Service Mailer in Alabama and one of few in the entire Southeast. And because of this certification, we can routinely negotiate postage discounts for our clients that other mailing shops simply cannot produce.
"It is vital in our business to stay on top of changes to mail preparation. I deal with dozens of mail shops...however, out of many there are but a handful I will go to continuously for advice and information about new USPS rules and regulations. Commercial Printing and Mailing is one of those suppliers.
Their knowledge, experience and sense of responsibility to me as a customer is invaluable. I rarely implement USPS changes internally without first consulting them. They are truly a team player."John Salisbury at MSHC Partners in Washington DC
