Can I schedule a mailing to go out on a specific date?
Yes there are a few ways to send letters on a specific date.
If you want the letter to go out the fastest way possible, you can choose to expedite the order. It costs a little more, but puts your letter in the front of the line. Depending on what time of day you create your mailing, it is possible that it can go out the same day that you create and pay for it.
However, if you want to delay the mailing of a letter then you want to do what we call Scheduling a Mailing. When you schedule a mailing you are basically telling us to process your order but hold onto it until a specific date and then put it in the mail.
You can use job scheduling any time, but here is a list of some great reasons to use it. 1) you'll be on vacation or away from a computer the day you need your mailing to go out. 2) you have a big mailing list and you don't want everyone to get the mailing all at once because it could overwhelm your call center and/or office staff. 3) you have different types of mailings to the same list and you want to change up your messaging for each letter.
To schedule your mailing for a future date you simply click on Edit under the Options menu on the Job Listing page (The last column after your job name). From the menu choose "Change Schedule Date", enter a date and then click save. We will make sure your mail gets sent on the day you need it to.
Keep in mind, that we process scheduled jobs quickly too, even though they will mail at a later date. Sometimes customers think they can change or delete a scheduled job because it is scheduled way out into the future. However, if we have already printed the job, printing and shredding fees will probably be charged if you need to delete the job.
