Offset Printing vs. Digital Printing
Which is the better fit for your project – offset printing, or digital printing?
Two choices await you when you walk in with a large printing project – offset printing or digital printing. These two printing styles have been around for years (well, one far longer than the other), and both have their advantages. Here’s what you need to know.
The Tampa Bay PCC has recognized Modern Mail & Print Solutions as the 2013 Small Market Business of the Year! This is a tremendous honor for us and we are extremely grateful for the recognition. The reason for our success though is because of our great and loyal customers like you so a big THANK YOU for helping us achieve this great honor! We are excited to build on this success with you in 2014!
Recent facility closures have brought huge changes to the Mailing industry, increasing costs and slowing down delivery times. In addition, these changes have impacted our local area making it more difficult for local mailers to achieve SCF Discounts in both Tampa and St. Petersburg. Previously, if you owned a permit at either Tampa or St. Petersburg and you were mailing into that area, you automatically received a $.04 discount for entering your mail into the Bulk Mailing Facility. Now as of January 5, 2015 to qualify for SCF discounts, mailers will no longer be able to achieve that discount at the BMEU (Bulk Mailing Facility) and are now required to enter mail at the identified SCF location for that mail. So this means if you own a permit in Tampa or St. Petersburg, for you to achieve the SCF discount there will be a Drop Ship Charge associated with that mailing because those facilities are not SCF locations. These changes may cause you to see either higher postage costs or an additional Drop Ship charge with your mail.
Effective January, 2014, the use of the Full-Service Intelligent Mail service is required for all mailers to qualify for the Automation Discounted prices. With this ruling going into effect by the US Postal Service, Modern Mail & Print Solutions will be transitioning into Full-Service capabilities to ensure our customers will continue to achieve the best postage prices available. “This is a huge process and transition for our company, but one that was necessary.” said VP of Operation Shane Cosser. “With this move to Full-Service, we will be more efficient from a mailing stand point and be able to continue to service our customers the way they’ve become accustom to.”

The revised standards for Folded Self-Mailers will go into effect on January 5th, 2013. These new standards are intended to provide mailers more mail piece design options, while balancing design innovation and machinability to improve the overall supply chain. With these new standards in effect, the final fold will have to be on the bottom of the mail piece and for oblong pieces the final fold needs to be on the leading edge. This will also require a minimum of two tabs to be used and they cannot be placed on the bottom edge of oblong pieces any longer. For more information, click here.
