Dear Susan, Susan and Peter....

We use a bulk rate permit for the PofA Mailings. (Playboard and Directory.)
We get a bulk not-for-profit second class rate. We pay full price for First
Class because of the low number. We send out less than 2000 pieces every other
month, plus the Directory once a year....We use a Mailing House. They have
given us some great advice.

It saves us some. But I think that's because the addresses are barcoded and
sorted. They do this.
Seems to me that the cost of a mailing house service would sort of be a wash
if you can't take advantage of all or most of the above.

I haven't used it but there is a USPS.gov web site that can answer a lot of
these questions.

Hope this helps...
Fred T.
