Using the Every Door Direct Mail is easy because we are here to help you understand and succeed with the program. It is an easy 3 step process.
1) Who do you want to reach?
You can mail to an entire city, a neighborhood or a targeted area that is a specified distance from your business. If you are targeting a specific area, you then identify which Postal Service mail routes match that area. The US Postal Service has an Every Door Direct Mail service tool located on their website at http://www.uspseverydoor.com/index.php/retail. It is easy to use, but you will have to get a “Customer Registration Identification.” This is not a permit and doesn’t cost anything.
You can also contact us at PostcardGuru Print & Promo and we will be happy to help you. In addition, we will help you navigate through the postal requirements as you prepare all the necessary forms and postal statements.
2) Choose Your Printed Mail Piece Design & Size.
What do you want to communicate on your mail piece? Do you want to advertise a sale, mail a coupon or let potential customers know you are there? You message will help determine the size of your mail piece.
EDDM pieces have to be what the postal service calls a “Flat”. That means it must be larger than 6-1/4"x11" but not larger than 12"x15." The most economical sizes that we have set up are 6.25"X9" and 8.5"x11" with the 8.5"X11" being the most popular.
PostcardGuru is here to help you figure out what size will work the best, along with helping you figure out what needs to go on the piece to print so you get your message across.
3) Schedule Your Mailing
When do you want to mail your piece? Do you want to mail it more than once? To introduce your business to the community you may want to mail once a month. If you are having a sale, mail one or more times during the course of the sale. We are here to help you figure all of this out. We can also print all your mailings at one time, which will save you money.
