Mailing Services
We are responsible for collecting postage from you, scheduling your job to mail and passing your mailing payment to U.S. Postal Service (USPS). Our responsibilities end when USPS accepts your mailing from us. We provide a proof of mailing statement (3600 for first class mail, 3602-R for standard class and 3602-NP for the Non-Profit mail) as USPS makes each available to us (typically within 24 – 48 hours of the order’s drop date). Lost mail, non-delivered mail and mail-transit time are the responsibilities of the USPS and we cannot be held liable for any of these issues. USPS will not give a refund on postage for non-delivered mail.

First Class Mail reaches its destination in 1-5 days (average); Standard Class and Non-Profit mail reach destinations in 7-10 days (average, though many mailings reach destinations much faster).

Mailing lists are kept confidential. They will not be sold or used for any purpose other than your mailing and will then be deleted.
We are not responsible for nor do we guarantee a response to your mailing.

If there is an issue with your print order and we are found to be at fault, we will only accept liability up to the cost of goods and services provided. This does not include any postage cost. By using our services, you release us from liability for any loss of revenue, business or implied damages.
