Capabilities


Shelton Presort currently uses two 252 pocket PTI-45 letter sorters to automate all first class and standard letters designated by our clients for presorting and barcoding. Each PTI-45 is capable of processing 35,000 to 45,000 letters per hour, depending on the length and thickness of mail.  We currently employ 8 sorter technicians certified by OPEX and we maintain our machines like new by following a rigorous daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly maintenance schedule. All of our machine operators must first be trained as technicians; this ensures that our machines are always able to process your mail.

Raf Platinum OCR

The RAF Platinum Optical Character Recognition software used by our PTI-45s is considered one of the best OCR packages in the industry. Our sorters can read most machine fonts, as well as most handwritten letters. This means that more of our clients' mail will qualify for postage discounts and it ensures expedited delivery of their mail

Combining and Commingling

Shelton Presort will combine your letters with mail from our other clients'. By combining our clients' mail, we increase the amount of letters going to each zipcode, thereby increasing the postage savings for everyone.

Endorsement Printing and Redating

In addition to the 11 digit delivery point barcode sprayed by our printers, Shelton Presort can also endorse or redate your letters. If you forget to meter your letters with "Presorted First Class" or if you accidentally meter your letters with the wrong date, Shelton Presort will fix this for you, free of charge, during the sorting process.


Presorting First Class Automation Flats

Our state of the art mixed mail sorter will apply the proper delivery point barcode to your mailpieces before sorting them by zipcode. Call us today and find out how much money you could be saving on your flat sized mail!

First Class Flat Rates:

Size Full Rate 3 Digit Automated Presort Fee $ Saved Per Piece
<1oz. $.88 $.542 .16¢ 17.8¢
<2oz. $1.05 $0.712 .16¢ 17.8¢
<...oz. $.78 $.607 .16¢ 17.8¢
<10oz $2.41 $2.072 .16¢ 17.8¢

*$0.215 is the upgrade rate from automation flat to presorted flat (hand-pitch). To upgrade an automated flat to full rate would be $0.338. We only upgrade flats to hand-pitch, never to full rate. This saves our clients' $0.123 for every automated flat reject and there are no additional fees for this process.
