WE WILL REJECT ANY SCANNED ADDRESS LISTS: DO NOT SEND SCANNED MAILING LISTS
We have tightened our formatting guidelines. If you would like us to mail to a list that you provide, it must adhere to our strict formatting guidelines. To view what those guidelines are, please click on the link to view a pop-up webpage on how to format your mailing list. If we receive your mailing list and it is not in the proper format, we will assess a $5.00 charge for reformatting your mailing list. We reserve the right to reject the mailing list if it is not reasonably conformable to our format.
Both of the above.
Section 3: Defining your USPS delivery method for the ENTIRE mailing list
FIRST CLASS SERVICES PROVIDED:
The entire mailing list - FIRST CLASS MAIL
All mailpieces will be run through our zip code validation system and delivery point addresses will be upgraded to the Zip+4 delivery code. In addition, each mailpiece is run through the National Change of Address database to ensure deliverability. All mailpieces will be imprinted with the latest Intelligent Mail Barcode for faster delivery.
Your entire mailing list will be mailed at the first class rate.
The entire mailing list - CERTIFIED MAIL FIRST CLASS
Your ENTIRE mailing list will be sent certified mail, return receipt requested as well as First Class mail. There is a service charge of $25.00 for this option as well as the normal charges and additional postage. Think twice before you select this option as every piece of mail will be sent at the rate of $5.65 or higher. If you have a mailing where only a few select individuals need certified service, use the certified service mailing project upload page.
TAKE YOUR POSTAGE DISCOUNT:
In order to receive a postal discount of two cents per mail piece on all one ounce letters, you must complete and send to us a PAF form. We can only provide discounted postage to firms who agree to allow us to process their mail for them through the USPS system. The PAF form access is on the main dashboard of our website.

Section 5: Upload your .pdf files for printing and service
MAX UPLOAD SIZE = 2MB
(1) YOU MUST TITLE THE FILES THAT YOU UPLOAD! The title of the document is what will appear on your certificate! Be as descriptive as possible.
(2) YOU MUST PLACE YOUR FILES IN THE ORDER YOU WANT THEM PRINTED! Typically, this is Notice, Motion, Exhibit, and Order. We will print your documents in the order they are uploaded.
DO YOU HAVE MORE THAN 10 FILES?
Please combine them into 10 files or fewer from your Adobe Acrobat Program. You can do this by pressing 'SHIFT+CTRL+I' from your Adobe Acrobat Program and a File Insert Dialog will appear. You can combine as many documents as you like into one file. Remember, there is a 2.5 MB upload limit for your documents.
Section 6: Printing / Mailing / Document Preferences
We will print on both the front and back side of the sheet.
We will print both sides of a sheet of paper. This is called 'duplex' printing.
Print Both Sides (duplex)
This will not affect your per-page cost. Our charges are based on how many pages you submit in your original documents. Seleting two pages per side per sheet of paper (2up) will save you money on postage. ALL PAGES WILL BE PRINTED FRONT AND BACK.
How many pages per side of paper?
Do you want us to send our Certificate of Service with your documents for mailing to the creditor matrix?
Most districts do not require you to send your certificate of service with your documents. If this is your situation, you should check the 'No' box. Checking yes means we print the certificate of service with your documents including the mailing matrix and attach it to the end of your documents. This can add in several additional pages of unnecessary printing and postage. If you don't need to send our certificate in your mailing, you should check 'No'.
When we return your .pdf certificate to you, would you like us to attach your submitted documents as well?
We can place your combined documents at the front of your certificate, so the certificate of service comes at the end of all your mailed documents. This can save you time in filing your documents on ECF if you have not already filed them. There is no charge for this service.
If you have a preference in what you want us to name the file that we send back to you as a .pdf, and which you file with the Court, please enter in the text box to the left. If blank, the name for your certificate will be 'COS.pdf'
Do you have a preference for what we name the certificate of service.pdf file we return to you?
Please name my certificate the following:
