For Full Mailing Services orders:
- Choose “First Class Mail” when content is time sensitive. Once the order is dropped off at the post office, First Class will typically be delivered in 2 to 5 days in most cases, however, Alaska, Hawaii Puerto Rico, and Guam could take longer.
- Choose “Standard Mail” when you have at least 200 pieces and the content is not time sensitive. Though this type of bulk mailing is less expensive, the USPS processes it on a “time available” basis and there is no guaranteed delivery time. Once the order is delivered to the post office, local Standard Mail is typically delivered in 4 to 14 days. If a piece is undeliverable, it will not be returned and will go directly into the USPS recycling bin.
- The delivery times listed above are based on USPS estimates once your mail has been delivered to the post office. Please account for the time to process and print your order when trying to determine when your mail will be delivered to its recipients.
