Advantages of the USPS Mail Anywhere Program

January 28, 2021

The United States Post Service (USPS) Mail Anywhere program allows mailers to enter their mail at any Business Mail Acceptance Unit in the United States with a single permit, regardless of where the permit issuing post office is located.

Mail classes eligible for the Mail Anywhere program:

  • First-Class Mail – Cards, Letters, and Flats only
  • Standard/Marketing Mail – Letters and Flats only
  • Nonprofit – Letters and Flats only
  • Bound Printed Matter – Flats only
  • Periodicals – Letters and Flats only

The Mail Anywhere program does not support Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM).

In days past, mailers felt limited on where their printing and mailing service providers (MSP) could be located because of added freight charges incurred in shipping processed mail to the permit-issuing post office. This usually precluded shopping for the best service and prices in geographically remote locations.

The Mail Anywhere program has opened the door for mailers to select printers and mailing services based on best value regardless of location. This has proven to be even more advantageous to mailers on the east and west coasts because they can take advantage of MSPs located in the Midwest where overall pricing is more attractive.

Another benefit for mailers in the east or west is that mailing from the Midwest, being geographically closer to the center of the US, evens out mail delivery times.

Not all MSPs qualify for the Mail Anywhere program participation. USPS has stringent eligibility criteria based on the MSP’s historical performance per their USPS Mailer Scorecard.

Premier Print Group has a sterling track record with USPS and is a well-qualified participant in the Mail Anywhere program. Under this program we process mail with a customer’s existing permit and drop it at the Champaign, Illinois post office which is a Sectional Center Facility (SCF) and Business Mail Acceptance Unit (BMAU).

Program Implementation is Easy

Once we receive a mailing list and process it through our postal software we send our customer a postage estimate. The customer simply needs to be sure their account at the permit-issuing post office has sufficient funds to cover the mailing. As part of our service, Premier creates all paperwork necessary for a smooth transaction.
