Mail Center



Business Reply Mail

Business Reply Mail (BRM) makes it easier for your customers to respond to your inquiries and/or surveys. BRM allows you to receive First-Class Mail from your customers (or potential customers) by paying postage (and a fee) only on the mail that your customers actually return to you. You provide your customers with specially designed business reply envelopes, cards or labels. Your customers can return these items to you with their responses quickly and easily because they do not have to address an envelope or affix any postage. Because the reply mail is pre-addressed and pre-coded with a barcode, your mail is returned to you quickly and you do not have to worry about incorrect addressing by your customers. The design of Business Reply Mail makes it easy for the Postal Service to process your mail. You will be charged First Class Postage for each piece of Business Reply Mail returned to you plus a per-piece service charge. You can distribute your Business Reply Mail in unlimited quantities within the United States. The ODU Mail Center pays an annual fee to the U.S. Postal Service to participate in the Business Reply Mail Accounting System (BRMAS), which allows for automated accounting of your Business Reply Mail postage and service costs. Contact the Mail Center for a list of vendors that design Business Reply Mail. You should also provide the Mail Center with a sample of your Business Reply Mail before you contract for final print.
