May DMM Update

Postal Explorer® ( is your source for up-to-date mailing standards. The Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) is fully searchable on Postal Explorer and features fly-out menus, cross-reference links, and an extensive subject index. On May 6 we updated our mailing standards to include the following changes:

Clarification of Picture Permit Imprint Promotion Eligibility

We revised 709.3.3.4 to clarify the eligibility of residual pieces for the promotional discount for Picture Permit imprint mailings. We published this information in the May 2, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

Folded Self-Mailer Clarifications

Based on mailer feedback, we revised 201.3.0 to clarify standards for folded self-mailers. We will publish this information in the May 16, 2013, Postal Bulletin.

Our next scheduled DMM update is June 3, 2013.
