What is Presorted First Class?

Presorted First Class is a Post Office term that defines the class of service and postage that is required for a particular mailing. Presorted First Class mail will typically take about 3-4 days for delivery nationwide. The USPS will forward (providing the recipient has filed a change of address with the USPS) or return a mail piece that is non deliverable to the individual to which it is addressed. Our Direct Mail Services include CASS and DPV certification that will identify and remove addresses that are not considered deliverable by address to help aid in the amount of returns you may receive due to invalid addresses in your database.

Please note that the CASS and DPV process verifies that an address is a valid delivery point and will not verify that the individual is currently at a particular address. For more advanced processing of a database we provide NCOA services that will compare your database with the USPS National Change Of Address database. Please call our Direct Mail department for more information about NCOA processing services.

Presorted First Class rates are on average about 5 cents less per piece than a Single Piece First Class stamp. For more information please visit the USPS website at the following address:
