Direct Mail

Direct Mail

If you’ve got a mass mailing project, we can organize and handle your needs. Direct Mail Services processes large volumes of identical pieces of mail that are distributed to campus locations or mailed as First Class or Standard Mail.  For general questions about incoming or outgoing mail or packages, please call 415-502-MAIL (6245) or visit UCSF Mail Services.

At Documents & Media’s Direct Mail Services division, we process all outgoing bulk mail from University departments and organizations. 

We specialize in:

• List Management
• Variable Data/Personalization
• Direct Mail

We can manage from start-to-finish the following preferred mail addressing options:

• Ink Jet: Prints the address directly onto the mail piece. Size requirements are from 3” x 5” to 16” x 17” and thickness up to 1/2”.
• Pressure Sensitive (1 up): Labels in a single continuous column. Affixed by machine.
• Avery: Labels printed on 8.5” x 11” sheets. Affixed by hand.

In order for your mail to qualify for Standard A (Third class) postage rate, it must have a minimum of 200 identical pieces or 50 lbs. of identical pieces.  It must be sorted, stacked, and trayed according to postal regulations and the proper postal forms must be filled out and accompanying the bulk mail to the Post Office.

Documents & Media will make your bulk mailing experience easier.  And best of all, you don’t have to manage the required bid process for your mailing job by using us.  An external competitive bid process is not required when Documents & Media is used – see UCSF Campus Administrative Policy 200-20.
