Businesses and other customers can receive discounts next year for incorporating new technologies into their mailpieces.

The Postal Service will offer six promotions next year to encourage businesses and other customers to use mail.

The promotions include discounts to customers that incorporate new printing techniques and mobile technologies into their mailings.

For example, one promotion will allow first-time mailers to add print-mobile technology to as many as 10,000 mailpieces, while another promotion will focus on technologies that link mailpieces with online shopping experiences.

USPS is urging potential participants to review the new promotions documents for updates to ensure they produce mailpieces that meet the guidelines for the incentives and discounts.

Registration for the promotions begins Nov. 15. The RIBBS site has more information.
