You will first need to obtain a permit number from the post office. There is no fee to apply for the basic permit, but there is a fee to get a permit that will use a permit imprint. There is a one-time fee for setting up an account, and it is payable when the application is submitted. Once a bulk mailing permit number is obtained, a bulk mail imprint can be created.

To create a bulk mailing permit stamp in Microsoft Word, create an envelope, and optionally, a mail merge document in the program. Put a text box in the upper right-hand corner, exactly where the return address information would normally go. Right-click on the text box, and select the tabs to set height and width values to the appropriate size. Place the cursor inside the text box, and type in the permit number, along with a graphic or logo, if that is desired. Graphics can be added by selecting "Insert" from the file menu and then clicking "Insert Picture" from the drop-down box. Finally, format the graphic and text as necessary.
