Mailing Guidelines

Business-Related Outgoing Mail:

Outgoing mail that is to be metered needs to be dropped into the “Outgoing Mail” bucket. (The Mail Center treats all mail that is to be metered as First Class unless otherwise marked.)

Outgoing mail that is to be metered must have the “Lee College” return address in the upper left hand corner.

Lee College
P.O. Box 818
Baytown, Texas 77522-0818

The name of the department that is to be billed must also be in the return address. If it is not, the mail will be returned to the department for verification.

Standard #10 envelopes do not have to be sealed. If you choose not to seal them, please make sure the flaps are open and flapped over.

Envelopes larger than the standard #10 size must be sealed before they are brought to the Mail Center.

Personal Outgoing Mail:

Personal outgoing mail may be dropped off into the “Outgoing Mail” bucket, but it must have postage affixed. Stamps are available for purchase in the Campus Bookstore located in Moler Hall. The Mail Center does not sell stamps.

Other Mailing Options:

The Lee College Mail Center also provides help with:

  • USPS Priority Mail 
  • USPS Express Mail 
  • USPS Certified Mail

For supplies and/or quotes on costs for these services, please speak to one of the Mail Center staff at ext. 6326. Mail that is to be sent by other carriers such as: UPS, FedEx, or DHL should be directed to the office of Shipping and Receiving at ext. 6526.

Bulk Mailing

Guidelines:

  1. A minimum of 200 pieces is required.
  2. The pieces must be identical in size, weight, and content. No personal messages can be added; the only difference in the pieces should be the address.
  3. The department name and the Lee College return address must be on each piece.
  4. A nonprofit permit imprint must be in the upper right hand corner and must be legible. It can be pre-printed or you can hand stamp each envelope by using the rubber stamp available in the Mail Room.
  5. Bulk mail is for domestic use only. Foreign mail cannot be included; Mexico and Canada are considered foreign.
  6. The Mail Room equipment will seal size #10 letter envelopes if the flaps are left up. Larger envelopes must be pre-sealed.
  7. Envelopes must be in ZIP code order: all five digits, lowest number in front to highest in back.
  8. A sequential list of all ZIP codes and the number of pieces going to each ZIP code list must be submitted to the Mail Room with your mailing. Email submissions are preferred.
  9. Depending on the amount of pieces, the usual turnaround is 24-72 hours. This allows sufficient time for the mail to be sorted and checked for errors.

Once the bulk mail has been processed and you have received a copy of the completed postal form, a PR must be entered for the amount of the postage to be used. The bulk mailing will then be delivered to the post office.
