Bulk mail postage rates all comes down to volume and saturation. The more you mail to one area the cheaper your bulk mail postage cost. These days with all of the postal automation, it makes a lot of sense to mail at standard rates. There have been instances where “bulk mail” (standard mail) has arrived before first class that was dropped on the same day. This is because all the work is done for the post office. Mailing companies have sophisticated software that will sort the mail all the way down to line of travel. This means the mail is in order for the delivery persons route!
If your sending letters to people all over the country, your postage cost will be between 21 cents each and 27 cents each. These bulk mail rates are for letter size mail (up to 6.125 x 11.5 landscape only, if you turn it into a portrait orientation it becomes a flat and your postage will increase). You get up to 3.3 ounces for standard rate mail! First class mail postage cost is calculated by the ounce so be careful to check the weight first. If you are sending flats standard rate, your postage cost will be about 34 cents to 49 cents per piece depending on your list.
