Labels for Rent!

The California Park & Recreation Society (CPRS) can provide labels both to members and nonmembers of the Society; however, members pay a much lower rate of $55 per thousand, as compared with the nonmember’s $155 per thousand. Anyone with a mailing project may make a label request by calling the CPRS office directly. The following explains more about the label rental process.

Why is it called a "rental"?

Labels purchased from CPRS are for one-time use; any multiple use of a purchased set of labels is not permitted. It is important to understand that you do not purchase the list of names, but only the temporary (i.e., one-time) use of the physical labels printed on your behalf.

What are the costs? What if I only need 100 labels? 1,001?

Members $55.00 per thousand
Nonmembers $155.00 per thousand

The cost for mailing labels is calculated in increments of 1,000. That means that whether you request 20, 200 or any number up to 1,000 labels, the cost will still be the same.

What do you need to do?

Before labels can be sent, you must first do a few things:

  • Call CPRS. Staff will be able to mail or fax you a "Label Rental Contract" form to complete and return.  Click here to download the Label Rental Contract.
  • Send a sample of what you plan to mail. The content of what is mailed must be monitored by CPRS staff. Labels cannot be issued "sight unseen"; mailing pieces must be sent with the label request to CPRS for staff review before the mailing goes out.
  • Send payment with the request. Payment must be received before the labels will be processed. Besides a check or money order, CPRS can accept VISA, Mastercard and American Express.

How long does the process take?

After CPRS has received the payment, signed contract and mailing sample, labels will be processed quickly, within 1-2 working days.
