Mailing

Our mailing department has the experience and knowledge to help with all your fulfillment needs. Our mailing professionals work hard to keep up with the constant changes in the postal regulations. This allows us to keep your postage cost to a minimum. Our job is to ensure that your mail is delivered in a cost-effective, timely manner.

CASS Certification

Our consultants use CASS (Coding Accuracy Support System) software that is certified by the United States Postal Service. In addition to adding zip + 4 and Carrier Route information to your list, our software will standardize the delivery address to an USPS approved format. This is done by comparing your database with the “current” USPS National database. WPDS receives an updated database from the USPS every 2 months.

Why should I get my list CASS Certified?

CASS Certified addresses are guaranteed deliverable, so your mail will get to its destination. The USPS requires certification in order to take advantage of certain discounts like barcoding and Carrier Routing. These discounts could be as much as 9 cents for first – class and 11 cents for standard (Formerly 3rd class) mail.

Database Management

As part of our complete mailing service, Wells Print and Digital Services can manipulate your data so that you mail only to the people you want to.

Duplicate detection and removal

We can identify duplicates by address, name, or company depending on your criteria. Once identified, you have the option of receiving a printout of the duplicates. This can be a valuable tool to clean up your database, and allow you to only send one piece of mail to an address.

Assign Congressional District numbers

For political mailings, we can assign the Congressional District numbers to your database. This allows you to mail only to those people in the districts you are targeting.

Specific Criteria Set by the customer

You may target your mailing to whomever you want depending on your specifications. This can range from limiting a mailing to a specific city, certain zip codes, or based on any information contained in your database.

At Wells Print & Digital Services, your list is kept strictly confidential, so there are no worries that your database could be used by any one else.

Wells Print & Digital Services will house the list from your most current mailing with us at no charge. This can serve as an offsite backup of your valuable database.
