Business Reply Mail, or BRM

When a response is needed, a BRM is the preferred method of use and the university is willing to pay the postage. The advantage to BRM is that in a mass mailing we pay postage only on the pieces that are returned.


Please do not have BRM prepared by Student Publicity Services or any off-campus print/copy services. Instead, contact publications at (541) 552-6155. Contact Campus Mail Services at (541) 552-6201 for more information.


Courtesy Reply Mail, or CRM

A CRM is an optional method. The university prints and provides clients with a pre-addressed but not prepaid envelope. Clients place their own postage on the envelope.


Pre-metered Mail

With pre-metered mail, undated postage in the exact amount is applied to the envelope before it is sent out. The envelope must also be stamped with special wording by Campus Mail Services.


Postal Service's Qualified Business Reply Mail Program, or QBRM

The university agrees to comply with very strict formatting requirements that make the BRM automation compatible. In return for compliance, the university receives a substantial discount (see table below for details).

Heavier pieces require the use of a business reply label. These peel-and-stick labels are available from Campus Mail Services for $0.08 each.


Business reply mail 1 ounce envelopes are available from Print and Copy Services. These are generic envelopes that will need to have your departments name either written or stamped in the return address area.


If you wish to have a more personalized look or logo for your mail, customized business reply envelopes and postcards are also available from Print and Copy Services. Contact them at (541) 552-6134.
