Direct Mail Services is committed to providing the highest level of service to our clients. We are excited to announce that Direct Mail Services has been certified by the United States Postal Service to be a Full-Service Certified Mail Service Provider. In order to acquire this certification, our prepared mail was analyzed by the USPS over the past several months to ensure that the mail we prepare meets all full-service requirements. These requirements involve NCOA compliance, barcode uniqueness, and maintaining a 90% threshold stating that 90% of the mail we prepare is sent at full-service standards. Read More...
