| Q |

Can you inkjet names in a fancy typeface?
| A |

No. The United States Postal Service (USPS) has strict guidelines for mailing services. The only way PsPrint can offer you low mailing service prices is for us to inkjet standard fonts. As a result, we are not able to accept any addressing that includes italics or any other fancy typeface.

| Q |

There are more names on my list than I’m ordering. How do you
decide who on the list gets mailed to?
| A |

By default, if there are more names on your list than pieces ordered we will start at the top of your list and mail to all names until we run out of pieces or names, whichever comes first. Since we often run extra cards to ensure there are enough after potential production or processing errors, you will be charged postage and mailing service fees for any pieces mailed over the amount you paid for initially, but not for the printing of these extra cards.

You are also free to give us instructions on how you’d like the mailing run at the time you submit your mailing list. We can cut it off at the number you ordered exactly, regardless of overprints, take randomly from the list to get the right number, etc. You need to provide clear instruction and communicate this with the mailing services coordinator at the onset of your order.
