The following is a letter I recently sent to my bank. Let’s see if they are interested in saving money?
I am not soliciting business, I am just passing useful information. Because mailing is what I do for a living, I thought I would pass on this suggestion.
There is a way for the bank to save money on their monthly statement mailings. If you fold your statements into a 6 x 9 envelope instead of the 9 x 12 you can mail 2 ounces now for 42.4 cents. The second ounce is FREE. You are now paying 93.2 cents. That is a 50.8 cent savings on every statement that is 2 ounces or under. By my mailing experience, I would guess that is the majority of your mailing. Yes, you do have to fold the statements but I think that might be worth far less than 50 cents to you.
This is something new that just started on January 22 of this year. The post office included the 2nd oz for FREE on standard size mail if you’re using first class presort and you are!
Also the cost of a 6 x 9 envelope will be cheaper than the cost of the 9 x 12 so you will save again. This reduced postage is not available on a 9 x 12 size.
If you have any questions, just call.
