(CNN) – Your mailbox may be getting a lot more junk mail soon.

The New York Times reports the U.S. Postal Service is working to greatly increase its direct- mail advertising customer base.

That means more junk mail deliveries to millions of mailboxes and a lot more revenue for the struggling USPS.

The Times says  Postal Service officials estimate increased mail marketing could create more than a billion dollars of new revenue every year.

The report says nearly half of all mail delivered in the U.S. is advertising.
