Home Mail Using Penn's Bulk Mail Print
Bulk Mail Postage Classifications

Penn Mail Services maintains First Class and Non-Profit permits for use by the University. Penn’s permit number must be printed on your mailer as part of the postal indicia. If you intend to mail your project using Penn’s permit you must notify Penn Mail Services by completing their Permit Mail Form. Your printer or lettershop should also submit a copy of this form, along with a 3600 (First Class) or 3602 (Non-Profit) Postage Statement, to Penn Mail Services for approval/signatures before your mailing can be presented to the Lindbergh Post Office (where the permit resides). Penn Mail Services charges back the postage for your mailing to the budget code you provide on the Permit Mail Form.
