Webinar Overview

Everyone knows that the Postal Service is big, moves a lot of mail, and has been struggling as hardcopy mail volume declines. But is that all that a printer or printer/mailer needs to know? This webinar covers how less visible conditions, actions, and future events may have a bigger impact on the companies that produce mail than those companies may realize. Understanding the impact of external events--like what Congress does or doesn't do about the challenges faced by USPS or marketers' changing behavior--will affect mail and mail producers (and printers) and may be key in making important business decisions.

You Will Learn

  • The basics about USPS operations and finances
  • The legal constraints impacting USPS business
  • Why and how postage rates are set
  • What drives USPS operational and financial decisions
  • How future mail volume depends on current events
  • Upcoming external events that will shape postage rates
  • How the next 12 months may be consequential for the USPS and mailers

Who Should Attend

  • Owners and executives of companies involved in any stage of hard copy mail production
  • Operations managers
  • Marketing and sales managers
