Presorted First-Class mail is an excellent choice for businesses that send mailings to multiple clients on a regular basis. It is a fast, convenient, and affordable way to send documents that include personal information, including:

  • Invoices
  • Bills
  • Statements
  • Contracts
  • Letters
  • Cards
  • Postcards
  • Personalized correspondence
  • Parcels weighing less than 13 ounces

Generally, presorted First-Class mail is the best option for any of your business documents that are not newsletters, advertisements, catalogues, or mailers.

First-Class Mail: The Basics

First-Class mail is one of the most common ways to communicate with others through the United States Post Office (USPS). Here’s what you need to know:

  • First-Class mail rates are the same no matter where your mail is traveling: the rate is the same whether you are sending a letter down the block or to the furthest reaches of Alaska.
  • The maximum weight of a First-Class letter is 13 ounces.
  • The minimum number of letters you can mail at the commercial automated presort First-Class rate is 500.
  • You may be charged extra for your First-Class mail if your package is square, rigid, non-rectangular, or of an uneven thickness.
  • You may add Registered Mail or Certified Mail services to your First-Class mailing for a small fee.
  • The only two classes of mail that are faster than First-Class mail are Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express.
  • Standard Mail and Standard Post are slower and less expensive classes of mail. Personalized mail like letters and invoices may not be sent through standard mail.
