Glossary of Common Terms

CASS Certified
CASS (Coding Accuracy Support System) is a USPS program which certifies mailers, service bureaus and software vendors to improve the accuracy of the zip code information. The CASS certification helps to ensure the lowest possible postage rates and best postal discounts. Bar-coding for postal discounts must be performed by a CASS certified software. The bar-coding capability of popular word processing software is generally not CASS certified. CASS certified software must be updated frequently throughout the year to qualify for postal discounts.

Automation Postal Discounts
Automation postal discounts are allowed by the post office, generally, because pieces meeting certain requirements are able to be run through USPS machines rather than manually. Among the requirements are quantity, size, bar-coding, tabbing, and in some cases, a return address.

Spot Color
Spot color refers to the use of a color of ink on the printed piece that is freestanding. In other words, it is placed so that it does not touch any other ink of a different color.
