When it comes to capturing a recipients attention, personalization and bold use of color can be used to drive response. Billing and statement mailers know that they can also use color and personalization inside the envelope on onserts, which are invoices or statements that feature a marketing message within the content.
On January 9, registration opened for the USPS® Personalized Color Transpromo promotion. This promotion offers mailers who incorporate personalization and color within their statements a 3% mail discount. An additional discount opportunity is available for those that meet the requirements under the 3% discount tier, and also provide recipients with a reply mechanism.The promotion runs from February 1 to July 31.
Promotion Registration: January 9, 2023 – July 31, 2023
Promotion Dates: February 1, 2023 – July 31, 2023
Discount: 3% of eligible postage for First-Class Mail® presort and automation letters. This includes bills, statements, or account summaries. 4% of eligible mailpieces that also provide a reply mechanism via Business Reply Mail or Courtesy Reply Mail.
The Personalized Color Transpromo promotion rewards mailers who incorporate color into their transactional mail. This year an additional discount tier has been added for eligible mailpieces.
New to 2023
Mailers have an opportunity to earn a 3% or 4% discount on approved mailpieces during this year’s promotion. The 3% discount is deducted from the total postage paid at the time of mailing for the qualifying mailpieces. If mailers provide recipients with a BRM or CRM, then they could qualify for a 4% discount.
To be eligible for the Personalized Color Transpromo promotion the message must include a full color marketing message or visualization of account data. The mailpiece must have two or more colors (no black, white or grayscale) within the marketing message. Additionally, the message must be personalized to the recipient.
- Non-Eligible Consumer Messaging: Excluded messaging includes some paperless messages, messaging on the outside of the envelope and some other uses of color. More details on non-eligible messaging can be found here.
Required Message Placement
The marketing message or data visualization must be printed on the bill/statement itself as an “onsert,” which is printed within the content of the bill/statement. This differs from an insert, which is included inside an envelope. Inserts are not part of this promotion.
