New Year, New US(PS).

Your guide to the 2023 U.S. Postal Service Promotions.

The U.S. Postal Service recently announced their 2023 Mailing Promotions and we quickly read through them a few dozen times to break them all down for you (you’re welcome!).  Here at Thysse, we’re kinda known as THE Direct Mail experts. So buckle in, because over the next few months, we’ll be sharing all the ins and outs of these upcoming promotions to help you properly navigate them (and save a buck or two while we’re at it). 

This year, there are six different promotions scheduled to take place (two of which are brand-spanking new). We’ll be here to fully explain each promotion – along with all the important dates that go with it. Look for updates about a week ahead of promotion registration. Or just stay tuned to our socials and we’ll happily remind you each time one comes up!

Looking to get a jump start on any of the promos? YOU’RE IN LUCK because we’ve compiled a comprehensive list below.
