Delivery requirements for domestic mail.

To ensure efficient delivery, it is important that your items meet certain formal requirements.

 

Letters are the most personal and versatile way of communicating with a recipient. As of May 1, 2011, you can choose among the following two shipping options: Prio (delivery time E+1) and Eco (E+3).

The following factors determine postage:

  • Format
  • Weight
  • Machine processability
  • Delivery time (Prio/Eco)

Requirements for shipping as "Eco" items:

  • Must be posted at a distribution centre
  • Postage paid for Eco letter mail
  • Minimum amount 1,000 units
  • No additional services available

When choosing the "Eco" shipping option, please note the following requirements:

  • Must be posted at a distribution centre
  • Postage paid for Eco letter mail
  • Minimum amount 1,000 units
  • No additional services available

The size (32 x 10mm) may be adapted, but the relation between length and width must remain unchanged.

For your convenience, the permit imprint in different formats is available for download.

The imprint may not go beyond the postage area. Other than the "The Sans 5/Correspondence" font, you may also use Arial.

Use our sizing template to determine the correct format for your letter mail item. It's easy and straightforward to use.
