Mail Center 2011 (12/10/10)

Happy Holidays!  As we end 2010 and look forward to 2011, we continue to strengthen our printing and mailing partnership!  We have accomplished so much over the last seven years and still have much to do.  UI Central Mail Services continues to partner with additional internal departments and beginning in January 2011, we will begin working with UIHC billing operations. 

With the upcoming New Year, here are a few more items of interest:

The US Postal Service is currently developing a new postage increase plan after being denied their rate increase by the PRC this past fall. This could prove to be very interesting to say the least.  Further details will be provided as they become available.

Questions on printing and mailing jobs may be directed to me, Chris Kula, 319-384-3715 or during this interim period until we appoint a new person.  It’s been a while since I’ve worked directly with you, but I’m looking forward at touching base once again.  I am hopeful to begin coming up to the UNI campus after the first of the year.  All mail delivery and processing questions may still be directed to Joel Yedlik at 319-384-3807, and of course, you have a great mail and print staff located on campus!

Our variable data printing continues to grow and I welcome anyone looking at creating a personalized mailing to contact us and let us help you with your projects!

The entire UI Printing and Mailing Services would like to thank the entire UNI community for your continued support and cooperation.  Your continued support and willingness to make this partnership work has been demonstrated many times over and we look forward to serving you with another successful year!!!
