Batch Shipping Process

Print. Bind. Ship. It’s what we specialize in here at CPC. There’s so much we can do with those three and a little-known wonder is batch shipping.

We are here to make your life simpler.

If your product will be distributed directly to clients or stores we can streamline that process. There’s no need to have it sent to you to stamp, divide, or work harder in order to get them where they need to go. From letters to cookbooks, we can make your dozens or hundreds of individual shipments happen. 

We can format, print, and attach all the necessary labels and get your packages out the door and on their way to each place. After they’re on your way, your account manager will give you a spreadsheet with all the tracking information for you to save or pass along.

If your company has an account with UPS, FedEx, or USPS we can use your numbers to have shipments charged directly to you or we can use our number. The same works for return addresses if you want your business on the printed package label.

If you are batch mailing letters with a printed indicia, please notify us of if it is Standard or First Class so we can give you a proper shipping cost estimate when it is time. If you want more information on how to make or use prepaid indicia for your company, please read this post by USPS.
