The fact is, when you've been in the printing business as long as I have, you expect each generation of technology will be better than the last. Still, the results I'm seeing from the latest addition to our pressroom — the Goss M3000 — has amazed even a veteran like me. This press produces clear, razor-sharp images. It does an excellent job and is a great addition to our fleet of presses. If you'd like to see some samples for yourself, just give your sales representative or General Manager Rick Bortolotti a call. Technology seems to change at break-neck speed these days, and we work hard to evaluate and select the best equipment out there. What doesn't change here at Times Printing is our commitment to providing you with printing solutions backed by highly skilled staff and exceptional customer service. While our many presses offer the technology to print jobs that exceed the highest standards, our people make Times your best print partner. Inside this issue of Press Check, you'll meet one of those people, a print industry veteran by the name of Randy Lobe. Randy, who joined our staff last Fall, has more than 25 years of experience and makes a great addition to our Times Printing family. We've also featured useful information on postage permit waivers, a postage increase narrowly avoided and an interesting article on CNET's successful launch of a print magazine. FACTS Permit holders who present Full-Service Intelligent Mail barcode automation mailings (of First-Class mail cards, letters and flats, Standard Mail letters and flats, or Bound- Printed Matter flats) are eligible for the waiver of their annual presort mailing or destination entry fees when 90% or more of their cumulative annual mailings contain Full-Service Intelligent Mail barcode pieces. Enhancements being made to PostalOne on January 25, 2015, will enable permit holders and USPS acceptance clerks to view the cumulative Full-Service IMb percent through the Balance and Fees module in PostalOne that notes if the annual permit fee is "current," "due" or "waived." Fee Renewal Notice Letters that are sent for mailers who use the Centralized Account Processing System (CAPS) will be updated to include additional information that the permit holder is eligible for a Full-Service permit fee waiver for CAPS account holders. The permit and CAPS fee renewal notices are generated by the same system. That will continue as is, even if the customer has the potential to have their fee waived come the expiration date. The USPS sends the notices two months in advance and in the time from notification to payment due-date, a customer could raise or lower their percentage. If a mailer has had their fee waived and they have met their percentage all through the following year, they will not receive a letter. If for some reason the cumulative total drops below the required 90% minimum, the permit fee would be due immediately. For additional information, please contact Alice Manack, Director of Mail Services/Postal Affairs, at 920-994-2777 or alice.manack@timesprintingco.com. Postage Permit Fee Waivers
