About the Event
United States Postal Service 2019C
Building upon the success of the Promotions Calendars over the last few years, the Postal Service has developed a Promotions Calendar for Calendar Year (CY) 2019. The 2019 Promotions continue to encourage marketers, printers, and mailers to utilize new technology and print techniques that enhance the traditional benefits of a physical mail piece. This in turn can drive higher response rates and increase the overall return on the mailer’s investment in mail. By encouraging the use of technologies integrated in mail, the Postal Service expects to increase the value of direct mail and retain the volumes of transactional mail, thereby ensuring long-term product growth. The 2019 Promotions range between 3 to 6 months in duration, starting in February. Ultimately, the Postal Service decided to focus the 2019 Promotions on the following areas: USPS Informed Delivery, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Near Field Communication and Beacons, Shoppable Video, Video in Print, Programmatic and Retargeting Mail, Mobile and Social Media Shopping, Tactile, Sensory and Interactive Print, and Trans promotional Messaging on bills and statements.
