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.
