Migrating to Full-Service Webinar Series

The Postal Service encourages mailers to migrate to the use of Full-Service Intelligent Mail® when mailing First-Class Mail® postcards, letters, and flats, Standard Mail® letters and flats, Periodicals letters and flats and Bound Printed Matter flats

Full-Service provides customers with:

  • An additional per piece discount on every Full-Service mailpiece.
  • Address correction information at no additional cost for Full-Service mailpieces, providing Change of Address (COA) information and Nixie (undeliverable-as-addressed) information.
  • The ability to track service performance through reports and scan information.
  • Container, tray and mailpiece visibility.
  • Annual permit fees waived when 90 percent or more of cumulative annual mailings consist of Full-Service mail.
  • The opportunity to use the same permit at any location via our Mail Anywhere program.

We scheduled a series of webinars to assist mailers in transitioning to Full-Service Intelligent Mail. The webinars are designed to walk you through the process and help you get the most out of using Full-Service. Log on links to recordings of the four Full-Service presentations are available on RIBBS under Intelligent Mail Services/Education at https://ribbs.usps.gov/index.cfm?page=intellmailpresentations.
