    Grandview,

    You might want to call your postoffice and ask about the bundle in 50 thing. I mailed with mine and i called telling them that was a pain in the butt. they said just bundle in handfulls as long as carrier can hold them all good. I would guess not all post offices are the same but worth a shot. hope it helps ya some.

    hey guys
    i am having some difficulties
    i went to the post office today with all my flyers bundled and no one knew what to do. after about 5 minutes of them researching on the usps website they told me to register on the website. then they told me to go to smp.usps.gov . that website doesnt exist!
    i know which zip codes and routes i need.
    what i am wondering now is do my flyers need stamps or postage???
    thanks so much for the help

    I was more interested on your mailing label. Where the stamp should go it should say EDDM and the address just needs to say "local postal Customer'

    oh darn ok.
    so ill have to remake my flyers if i want to use this tool.
    let me get this straight (since the post office workers dont know)
    ill remake my flyer. In the upper right corner ill write EDDM. How do i get the words "LOCAL POSTAL CUSTOMER" onto the middle of my flyer(where the adress goes)?? or should i do this all on the back????
    does it need to be done with a sticker, or can i print my flyer with these words on it?
    thank you so much grandview

    Don't forget ,what ever zip code area is being used you have to go to that post office.
