					                                      Confidential Pricing Study for Mailing Services
                                                        Instructions

1. Please use pricing comparable to what you charged for actual mailings on January 1, 2007;
2. For services or quantities you don’t provide, leave those blank; i.e. If you don’t process million piece mailings, don’t provide pricing
   for them.
3. Prices for the various quantities should be provided as Price per Thousand (/M). However, enter only the price into the cells,
   not the text "/M".
4. If you bundle pricing, break out the component prices to the best of your ability.
5. Categories are strictly for the services specified – inserting is for inserting only, and would not include metering, addressing, etc., and
   so on.
6. Assume normal well printed material, and service provided within MFSA Industry Standards.
7. Assume “normal” turnaround time (whatever is normal for you) – no rush charges.
8. All pricing should be in US Dollars and cents, two decimal places (ex. 4.80).
9. For each service we have asked for a “set-up” charge, if you have one. Enter "0" or leave blank if you do not have a set-up charge for
   a particular service.
10. For each service we have asked for a minimum charge, if you have one. This would apply to this specific service only, rather than a job
   minimum. Enter 0 or leave blank if you do not have a minimum charge for a particular service.
11. At the top of each department we ask for a departmental set-up or job minimum. This would be a set-up or minimum charge other than
 a general “job” set-up for the entire project, or the per-function set-up or minimum for each task. If you do not have departmental set-ups or
minimums, leave these blank.

12. In some departments we have asked for surcharges for certain items, such as clear tabs. If you have surcharges for these items that
 vary with quantity, please provide the average surcharge /M. If you cannot provide the surcharge as a "Price per Thousand" please leave it blank.
