Pony mail is the internal mail system for MCPS. Only MCPS business mail may be sent by Pony mail. Place qualified pieces in your school's Pony mailbag.
In January 2019, the price of a stamp went up to 55 CENTS! That means you SAVE EVEN MORE when your school takes advantage of our FREE BULK RATE postage! When you send your mail using Bulk Rate (also called "Nonprofit Rate"), it is FREE to your school. Bulk Rate mailings are picked up by the Pony, processed and delivered to the U.S. postal service for you, and generally travel at the same speed as regular mail! All schools are strongly encouraged to use Bulk Rate for mailings of over 200 pieces.
For mailings of 200 pieces or more, just put the "SUBURBAN MD PERMIT 201" indicia (postage imprint) on your envelopes. You can download the indicia (see below) or request FREE printing of the indicia when you order envelopes for your school from our print shop (EGPS). The NONPROFIT POSTAGE INDICIA is printed on EGPS envelope orders at no extra charge!
TIP! You can use the indicia printed envelopes for regular mail too--just put your postage stamp OVER the pre-printed non-profit indicia!
To add the indicia image to envelopes you already have, download the current INDICIA and put it on your envelopes:
Never need stamps again! Blue Bag members simply place their mail in a special blue postage bag. For a nominal $200.00 start-up fee (a one-time expense to cover the cost of bags and postage machine supplies), we'll stamp your mail for you and keep track of your postage costs. Pay when it's convenient by JV transfer.
