Business Reply Mail - Scout MailBy Hallvard Slettebø
|Business Reply Mail (BRM) is a domestic service that allows a mailer to receive First-Class Mail back from customers and pay postage only for the pieces returned to the mailer from the original distribution of BRM pieces. These pieces must have a specific address and format. Postage and fees are collected when the mail is delivered back to the original mailer. BRM is a cost-effective way to provide reply pieces for a wide variety of mailings, including fund-raising solicitations, surveys, subscription renewals, etc.|
Businesses, government departments, fund raisers and other organisations of all sizes can use Business Reply Mail to:
Related terms are Courtesy Reply Mail (CRM) and Meter Reply Mail (MRM).|
CRM - envelopes or postcards that a mailer provides to its customers to expedite delivery of their responses. The customer affixes the reply postage before mailing.
MRM - a pre-printed return envelope, card, or label provided by a meter license holder as a courtesy to customers on which the postage is prepaid as a meter impression.
Business Reply Mail items are known from a number of Scouting organisations. Probably many more exist than those which are showed here.|
