American business owners rely on the United States Postal Service (USPS) and the United Parcel Service (UPS) to deliver thousands of dollars in products and inventory every month. In fact, a recent study found that the average U.S. business spends $388 on postage each month. That equates to more than $4,000 per year!
If you’re operating on a tight budget, those costs can quickly add up. And, if you factor in returns or damaged shipments, they can climb even higher. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to lower your investment upfront? Believe it or not, there is. All you have to do is become a WPMA member.

If you regularly find yourself visiting the post office or UPS store, now is the perfect time to take action. This is particularly true with the holiday season right around the corner.

The savings don’t end at shipping, either. As a WPMA member, you can save up to 30% on online printing for products like business cards, brochures, direct mailers and more. It’s just one of the many perks that WPMA offers.
