Indicias must be preprinted on each piece in the top right corner of the mail panel; the Samford Post Office cannot print these.

If you haven’t preprinted an indicia, you may borrow a rubber stamp to add the indicia to each piece by hand from Samford’s post office (ink pad not included).

Nonprofit Indicia

  • Cheapest option
  • Use this in almost all cases
  • USPS does not guarantee delivery times for any type of delivery other than express mail. In general, nonprofit mail takes 5–21 days to be delivered once the USPS receives it.
  • No individualized, personal handwriting
  • No individualized information other than address and salutation
  • No bills or billing information
  • No SSN or account numbers
  • Must be related to a Samford University function

Presorted Standard Indicia

  • Not as cheap as nonprofit
  • Use when advertising (offering something in return for payment)
  • Use for for-profit events (such as athletics camps)
  • USPS does not guarantee delivery times for any type of delivery other than express mail. In general, presorted standard mail takes 5–21 days to be delivered once the USPS receives it.
