Despite the 2021 postal rate changes, the USPS continues to be an affordable option for bulk mailing and distribution of printed materials in the United States. Modern Litho mails more than 1.3 million pieces of mail per month on average from its headquarter facility. A USPS employee is assigned to work on-site to verify mailings and process them for direct delivery to the sectional sort facility. For more USPS resources, see our USPS Updates blog.
