Alternative Designs

The USPS and the mailing industry have worked together to create requirements that will allow for the mailing of non-rectangular TED-C letter-size pieces at the automation letter prices.  




These pieces have a die-cut that extends past the conventional trailing edge of the mailpiece.  The conventional trailing edge is defined by a line drawn from the upper left corner to the lower left corner.
