Yes it is 50 cents each. But in my case first class was 78 cents and bulk
was 23 cents. This was a big savings on over 2000 pieces. We also had only
about 2% bad address returns. You also have to watch what they charge you
for returns at the local p.o. they came back with charges of 50 cents to
$1.78 because not everyone was familiar with what the charge should be.
