Re: [RC] [AERC-Members] Endurance News delivery - Typef

This is absolutely correct. I am currently the graphic artist for two
national newsstand magazines and they are printed and mailed from Fall
River, WI to expedite delivery, even though magazine headquarters are in
Southern California. Usually, only very large run magazines can utilize this
program. I also do the typsetting and mailing for a little 500 member
newsletter and looked into the second class periodical time frame and I
believe 7-10 days was the time frame. It wasn't a tremendous amount in
savings postage-wise over first class, but a heck of a lot more work in
bundling and packaging, so we opted to remain at first class. But then
again, we are only mailing 500, not 5,000!

...that's the price you pay when you pay cheap rates for third-class
delivery. <

Just a clarification -- Endurance News is mailed second class -- notice
the masthead (and the indicia on the back cover) says "Periodicals
Postage paid at Auburn, Calif."  That's a major step above third class
(bulk mailing). It's slower than first class--but not much. If I
remember approximate delivery times from my publishing days (and this is
some years ago, so I could be off), second class periodicals are
typically delivered within a week to 10 days. Many publications print
and mail from the Midwest to equalize delivery time around the country.
Mailing from Auburn is likely to slow delivery progressively as you head
towards the East Coast (but not 30 days' worth!).
