What is Bulk Mail?
The term “bulk mail” refers to large quantities of mail prepared for mailing at reduced postage rates.
The Postal Service offers a discounted rate only when certain standards are followed. Amazing Mail Solutions (AMS) is authorized to use unique software that conforms mailing to the requirements, such as sorting mail by zip code and using state of the art bar code technology.

The AMS primarily uses the standard and first-class permit imprint, but we also use postage meters and offer first or standard stamp affixing. The use of a standard stamp may enhance the appearance of your mailing. The permit imprint is usually preprinted on your material, but it can also be printed by our ink-jet printer. Some restrictions may apply, please contact our friendly staff for more details.
