Direct Marketing Solutions Indicia Guide
An indicia is a marking, printed on mailings, that denotes payment. Direct Mail Solutions has an account with the post office, called a permit, which all postage costs are withdrawn from. Our indicia shows that postage has been paid from our permit.
Guidelines to Follow for Indicias –
- Permit imprints must be legible
- Permit imprints must have no other printing above or to the right of the permit imprint in the address panel
- Permit Imprints must include information about the rate (or class) of mail
- Permit Imprints can be no smaller than ½” square, in no smaller than 4 point type, but must remain legible.
- Permits must be within a clear area no more than 1 ½” below or left from the upper right corner of the mail-piece or of the address panel when oriented to read the address.
- The box around the permit information is optional
- You may use any legible font, in all upper, or mixed upper and lower case.
- First-Class Mail is a registered trademark and must contain the hyphen (not a space) between “First” and “Class”
