Mail DVDs, CDs, and Now Blu-ray as USPS Flat

We had reported back in April of 2008 that under USPS pricing, mailing a 4-ounce CD in a jewel case by standard mail cost $1.36 in traditional packaging. Packed in a Conformer media mailer, postage drops to $0.52 as an automated flat. You can read more about our USPS approval and product launch here – Conformer Media Mailer First to Get USPS Green Light.

Nothing beats face time. As a result of standing side by side with operations folks and packaging engineers, we have developed a series of enhancements. Our in plant process is now largely automated utilizing our Conformer Media Tray along with an Auto Poly Bagger.

But our biggest success has been our ability to simplify the solution. We are now working to redesign our trays to fit CDs, DVDs, as well as Blu-ray. With the redesign, we can use one tray size and one polybag size to streamline the process.
