Machineable Mail Standards Updated

New changes are in place for Machineable Mail for Standard Size pieces as of July 9, 2014.

Canada Post have their new equipment installed at all processing plants across the country, with Vancouver having opened this spring. The effect has been to relax the requirement for envelope and mail piece design.

There will now be fewer mandatory requirements and a new set of best practices for optimal processing, including:

  • fewer restrictions on where you can place graphics on the mail piece
  • less room reserved for the postage meter impression or indicia
  • a larger area for the destination address
  • more font choices for the destination address

As usual we are keeping up with all of the changes. Call us at 250-384-POST (7678) to help you with your mail piece design.
