Addressing Information

USPS Mailings
When you provide mailing address files to us, we can check the list for addresses that don’t exist, ones that have inadequate information, or those that may fail current US postal requirements. We can add Intelligent Mail ® postal barcodes and sort your list for the most advantageous postal discounts. We receive and process lists that your department may request from Advancement, Admissions, Human Resources, Registrar, or your own office. We can merge lists that you supply and, upon request, will search for duplicates.

Not all duplication can be eliminated. Differing file formats or inconsistent content may keep some duplicates from being caught as a match. ‘Tom & Sherry Andrews’ from one file may not trigger the elimination of ‘Thomas Andrews’ from another, for example.

Submitting your mail files
Check your files for accuracy first. Make sure that you are working with the most up-to-date list and that it contains the information that you want used throughout your mailing.

The most common and acceptable file types are DBF, ASCII, text, MSExcel, and comma delimited. Other file types may work, but please ask our Mail Center to review before your final submission date.

You may send us your data files to, place them in our Printing Services Dropbox or use ITaP's File Locker (See File Transfer for instructions). Refer to the Printing Services Form 3 job number. Contact our mailing department if you do not know what your job number is. Tell us when, from where, and how many files we should expect, using a Mailing Information Form if possible. Copies of these forms are available online on our web site, from your department’s business office, or from your Printing Services customer representative.
