Print & Mail Center Account Card

The Print & Mail Center is replacing the yellow account card used for postage transactions with a new "Print & Mail Center Account Card". The new account card will provide Print & Mail customers an automated process of conducting all business with us while accurately allocating charges to the appropriate new chart string account number.


Effective 7/5/2006 the Print & Mail Center will begin using these new cards. We will provide a two week grace period for all units to discontinue use of the yellow card and transition over to the new one.

Effective 7/17/2006 all print and mail transactions will be conducted using the new account card.

Things to do

Financial and Administrative personnel should request new cards as soon as they know the chart string account numbers they'll use to conduct Printing and Mailing transactions. Please take the following steps to order your new Print & Mail Account Cards:

Anatomy of the card...

Using the new Print & Mail Center Account Card

The Print & Mail Center Account Card may be used for all inter-department transactions at The Print & Mail Center.

For postage transactions:

1) Separate your outgoing mail into three categories:

    a. Letters within the United States

    b. Flats (envelopes greater than 6" x 11.50") within the United States

    c. International mail leaving the United States

(Depending on its size, your International mail may require customs documents)

2) Attach a card to each category of your outgoing metered mail

Attach one card to all bundles of outgoing mail to be metered using rubber bands or paper clips.

Use a card even if you only have one piece of mail.

3) We'll process your mail

The Mail Center weighs and applies postage to each piece of mail with a valid account card attached.

4) Re-use and Re-place

The Mail Center recycles the cards back into the campus mail system after use.

For printing transactions:

Customers have several options for printing transactions. The most important being that you have a Print & Mail Center Account Card. Secondly, that you know the PMC Code listed under the barcode on your card. This PMC Code is the link between the internal Print & Mail transaction and billing to your People Soft account string.
