Free Webinar: Understanding Periodicals: Using Your Permit To Generate Revenue

Thursday, July 21, 4:00-5:00 p.m. EDT

New sampling rules for Within County newspapers became effective May 27. Congress passed a change in the allowance for nonsubscribers to receive newspapers with the Postal Service Reform Act of 2022. The new rule allows newspapers a wider allowance to send sample copies to nonsubscribers at the within County postage rate. The limit was 10 percent of annual Within County subscriber mail. With the new law, the limit becomes 50 percent. Join us to learn how to use your sampling privileges strategically for advertising ⁠— including information and samples on unmissable promotions like inserts and sticky note ads; how to promote to advertisers; and the important details (i.e., what constitutes an insert vs. a ride-along, etc.); and more.

Through a partnership with the NNA Foundation, Alliance members may participate in this webinar at no charge.*
