Business Reply Mail (BRM)

Business Reply Mail (BRM) allows you to receive First-Class mail back from the addressee by paying postage only on the returned mail. For example, if you mail 2,000 pieces and only receive 600 responses, you only pay postage for the 600 returned pieces. This is an option to consider instead of putting postage stamps on envelopes and losing postage on the pieces not returned.

BRM requires a permit from the USPS with an annual fee of $150.00. The BRE (Business Reply Envelope) or BRC (Business Reply Card) must conform to specific BRM design formatting to qualify, including the unique ZIP+4 code assigned by the USPS for our address. Although issued for the same address, BRE and BRC's have different ZIP+4 codes.

Below are the ZIP+4's for The New School, 66 West 12th Street Address:
