National Magazine at Periodical Mailing Rate Class
Project Overview: Addressing Magazines, Knowledge of Periodical Rates regulations, foreign issue handling & special handling of parcels
Location: New York, NY
Industry: Public Relations, Publishing, Communications
Cornerstone’s job is to ensure that no one at the O’Dwyers Public Relations company need to deal with mailing regulations for periodical rate magazines. The CRST Project Management desk helps ensure that sample copies of marked-up issues are provide to the USPS BMEU at time of presentment (in accordance with DMM regulations) and that minor tasks, such as the handling of international destination issues, are done with foreign address verification in addition to proper envelope packaging. This sort of work plays well into our Project Management approach wherein a client, such as O’Dwyers, works directly with a dedicated project manager who does all the coordination with the Production/Operations team and manages communication. We also check for funds availability on permit for the client since the Periodicals mailing class requires a unique (non-Cornerstone) permit to be active and funded.
