New Printed Parcel Service from Acutrack
In what will surely be a boon for self-publishers of all kinds, we’re delighted to announce a new low-cost, flat-fee book shipping solution from Acutrack. It’s called Printed Parcel Service and gives you advantages over other methods, along with preferred handling from USPS.
- Excellent rates
- Add marketing materials to your printed book shipments
- Two shipping speed options
- Preferential handling
The most important consideration with any shipping method is price. With Printed Parcel Service, you have two low flat-rate choices: standard and expedited. They work for all United States addresses and extend to numerous overseas U.S. Territories and Armed Forces locations.
The other significant improvement is added flexibility with your shipments. Books went as Media Mail to qualify for favorable rates in the past. But it allowed only “educational materials.” Now, with Printed Parcel Service, we can ship other printed items with your books.
How is Printed Parcel Service Better?
Profit-minded self-publishers are all about building closer customer relationships and up-selling to improve sales. When you use Printed Parcel Service, we can include collateral items like thank you cards and lifestyle journals in the packages.
Our Acutrack team, led by CEO Raj Barman, has long been working on developing economical improvements to book shipping. We like the idea of a simple, affordable, one-fee solution that’s completely transparent with no extra or hidden charges.
Better still, USPS (the United States Postal Service) offers preferred treatment to ensure a smoother and more reliable shipping process.
What are the Two Book Shipping Options?
When you use Printed Parcel Service, you can select from book shipping options:
- Standard: Delivery within 5 to 15 days; tracking capabilities; real-time shipping updates
- Expedited: Delivery in 5 to 7 days; tracking provided; real-time shipping updates
All books are shipped from our Livermore, CA, Acutrack hub with national and international service.
The simplified flat-fee approach extends to select overseas shipping, making it easier for self-publishers to manage costs and plan logistics effectively.
