What you need to know

One of the biggest learnings for a brand when looking to get into direct-to-consumer promotions is understand the difference between a Flat and a Marketing Parcel. It’s a big difference and being able to convert something to a flat could save you a significant amount of money, sometimes up to 75% per item being mailed.

A Flat

The very basic understanding of a flat in the eyes of the USPS is that it is no more than 12 inches high x 15 inches long x .75 inches thick. Another criteria is that it must not be rigid which dictates whether or not it can fit around a sorting drum.

A Marketing Parcel

A marketing parcel is typically defined as being 9 inches high X 12 inches long X 2 inches thick. It also must weigh less than 16 ounces. Once a box has moved over 16 ounces in weight the pricing brackets change dramatically for shipping and you could be looking at a minimum 50% increase in the cost of your project.

Pro Tip

Look for ways to reduce the thickness of your promotional items and keep the weight under 16 ounces.
