Preparation for delivery

If your items can be read and processed by our machines and if they weigh up to 50 g and have a maximum format of C5, Austrian Post will ship them at an inexpsensive rate. There is no need to sort your items or make bundles. Just place them upright in envelope boxes or in Austrian Post letter mail containers.

How do I know if my items can be read and processed by machines?

  • Address information in correct order in a font that is easy to read by machines
  • Leave coding areas on envelopes blank (min. 15 mm left, below and right)
  • Items closed on a minimum of three sides and sufficiently flexible
  • All items are flat and have to glued-on objects or objects that increase thickness
  • Envelopes are fully non-transparent


If you are planning to post more than 50,000 units, please let us know at least five business days in advance by writing to


Please print the following information in one block either on the front or on the back and  make sure it is clearly visible:

  • "Österreichische Post AG"
  • The product-specific letter "MZ" for monthly publications + the registration number as defined in your agreement
  • Sender's address
  • If you are using the discount shipping rate (MZ), additional provide the information "VORTEILSTARIF" in bold print underneath the permit imprint.

If you are sending your newspapers in envelopes, please add this information on the envelopes and make sure it is clearly visible.

If you are using window envelopes or if you are printing this information directly on the envelopes, you have the option of printing this information in a single line above the address. However, please do not use bold print and do not highlight anything. Leave an empty line between this information and  the address.


Newspapers are to be sorted by postcode and locality bundles, distribution route, distribution area and distribution zone bundles. Please tie bundles crosswise to ensure that they withstand all stress during delivery. Several bundles can be placed in one pallet.

The following applies to bundles:

Height Minimum 2 cm
Maximum 23.5 cm
Weight: Maximum 10 kg
Items per bundle: At least 10 kg (except in the case of heavy items)

All bundles need to have a correctly completed bundle label containing the following information:

• Title and registration number of the newspaper
• Client's sender information (name/company/address)
• Product-specific letter
• Date of posting
• City/town of posting
• City/town of destination (or the distribution route, area or zone).
• IMIS number
• Amount of items per bundle

Bundle labels are available in our download area. You can print them out yourself, provided that you follow all instructions.

For detailed information about delivery preparation, please see the General Terms and Conditions for company newspaper delivery.


All items must have a personal address and must be ready for delivery at the time of posting. In addition, please provide a sample copy of the newspaper including all inserts and supplements as well as a correctly completed posting list.
Newspapers and magazines sent to readers not living in Austria may be posted as Brief International Plus letter mail items.



These include supplements and inserts printed solely in the interest of the publisher. TV and radio programmes are also considered supplements. There will be no additional supplement fee if the supplement is part of the magazine. It is simply included in the weight calculation for the magazine.


These include all inserts added to magazines on behalf of third parties against payment.

Several inserts by one client are considered to be one insert, as long as they are placed in a sealed envelope of tightly bound together.

The following items are considered third-party inserts:

  • Full or partial advertising wrap (full or half wrap of newspaper without being an integral part of the newspaper)
  • Advertising cover for advertising purposes only placed before the actual editorial front page
  • Tip-On cards on the newspaper in the (full or partial) interest of a third party

If the title and issue number of the magazine are indicated on the first page and if continuous numbering is used, partial or full wraps will be considered to be part of the magazine and not third-party inserts.

Third-party inserts will be included in the weight calculation of the magazine. In addition, a separate insert fee of EUR 23.80 per 1,000 items shall apply. The total weight of all inserts must not exceed the weight of the magazine including supplements.

If you are posting your items at a discount rate, no inserts may be included.

Excess weight inserts

Generally speaking, the total weight of all third-party inserts must not exceed the magazine's own weight (including supplements). If this weight limit is exceeded, these inserts will be considered excess weight inserts.

A weight limit of 1,500g applies to excess weight inserts. The overall maximum weight (newspaper including packaging and all inserts) is 2,000g.

An additional, weight-specific fee shall apply to excess weight inserts, as defined in our applicable rate sheet.
