When we ship your postcards directly to you, we use FedEx and FedEx Ground. You can select from all forms of FedEx shipping, Overnight, 2 -Day or 3-Day.
If you select FedEx Ground it is the most cost effective. Below are the estimated shipping times for FedEx Ground from our Florida printing facility:
Florida - 1 day delivery
East Coast - 2-3 day delivery
Midwest - 2-4 day delivery
West - 3-5 day delivery
It is important to note that these shipping times do not include our print production times. If you need to have your rush product delivered by a certain date, make sure to use FedEx shipping, not FedEx Ground, as there is no guarantee for FedEx Ground deliveries.
When you supply a mailing list and we print and mail your cards to the list, we use the United States Post Office or USPS.
In order to do this we take your mailing list and process it using software that is directly linked to the USPS database of mailing addresses. We then process your list against the USPS NCOA - National Change of Address Database and this removes any bad addresses. Your list is then Pre Sorted for faster delivery by the post office.
The final list is merged with your artwork and the addresses are printed with barcodes onto each mail piece.After delivery to the post office, each card is then scanned and delivered. We have a 99.9% accuracy rate on the scanning of addresses with the USPS.
The delivery times are as follows:
First Class - 2-3 day delivery
First class postage is the only guaranteed delivery process for mail at the USPS. You pay more for it, but it does put your mail to the front of the line with each postal employee. If your card is time sensitive in any way (limited time offer, event with a date, etc.) you should always use First Class. Our 4"x6" postcard is mailed automatically First Class.
Standard Bulk - 3 day to 2 week delivery time
Standard Bulk postage is for oversized mailings such as a 5.5"x8.5" or 5.5"x11" postcard. It does not have the speed of First Class but it does cost a little less. The USPS does not guarantee any delivery time for Standard Bulk postage, that is why we show the 3 day to 2 week delivery time.
If your card is time sensitive in any way (limited time offer, event with a date, etc.) you should always use First Class. Our 4"x6" postcard is mailed automatically First Class.
It is important to note that these USPS mailing times do not include our print production times.
