On November 13, 2018, the Postal Regulatory Commission issued Order No. 4875, which approved six proposed USPS mailing promotions for 2019. These promotions are offered as a way to support mailers in their continued utilization of mail as part of their multi-channel marketing mix while also attempting something new with their mail pieces.
