Can I split a mailing between standard and first class postage in order to optimize delivery time, based on printer location?
To optimize speed & deliverability, Poplar routes mailers to a network of printers across the country based on availability and location. Because of the multiple variables involved with printer choice, it wouldn't be possible for the system to differentiate postage based on printer location. It is safe to estimate a 3-7 day in-home arrival for First Class and 7-12 days for Standard shipping.
Due to recent policy changes and the COVID-19 pandemic, USPS has been experiencing backlog in certain areas of the country. We kindly ask our clients to keep this in mind when determining shipping speed and tracking mailers sent via Standard shipping.
For time sensitive campaigns, we recommend mailing First Class when possible.
