EDDM Mailers

It’s never been this easy to reach the customers that matter most to you with Every Door Direct Mail™ from the US Postal Service. If you mail postcards, flyers or advertisements, we can help you save a lot of money using EDDM. A regular 4 x 6 postcard costs 33 cents to mail, an EDDM in any size has the price of 16 cents, less than half the price of a postcard mailer! So, where’s the catch? We will go thru some considerations one by one. 1. SIZE: The cards use for EDDM are bigger, but larger format means increased response rates. There are rules, but don’t worry about that, we have the pre-approved EDDM sizes available to you. The most popular size (for us) is the 8″W x 6.5″H, the reason is because is the most affordable. Other sizes available are: [one_half] 4.5″H x 12″W 6″H x 12″W 6.5″H x 12″W 6.5″H x 9″W [/one_half] [one_half_last] 8.5″H x 11″W 8.5″H x 7″W 9″H x 11″W 9″H x 12″W [/one_half_last] 2. NO MAILING LIST REQUIRED: EDDM Mailers are sent via Carrier Routes from the USPS. Basically, you are reaching a whole neighborhood. Some neighborhoods may consist in 4 to 5 carrier routes, specially in big cities. But the good news, is that your advertisement will be in every single mailbox and you will not have to put labels or stamps to your mailing piece. This take us to the next point… More savings! 3. NO MAILING PERMIT REQUIRED: EDDM offers two options. The first one is the EDDM Retail and doesn’t require permit because it let’s you sent up to 5000 mailing pieces a day. This is the option most small local business like restaurants, salons, auto repair shops will use. The second option is designed for businesses that send larger mailings using

Our Top Sellers 2013

This is our list of Top Sellers so far for the year 2013. Depending on the type of business that you have or events you are running some of these may not apply, but we will keep on posting more specific ideas per business line or event type soon. 1. Writing Instruments: Pens are always on demand and are considered on of the most cost-effective promotional products. 50% percent of the population has a branded pen. Pens come in a great variety of options like material (plastic, metal), ink color (black, blue and others), imprint type (screen printed, laser engraved, color wrap and others) and styles (cap on, click on, twist). So, before you buy a pen besides considering your budget, you got to think in your clients, for instance if you want the to keep you pen you are better off giving away a metal pen rather than a plastic pen which they wouldn’t mind giving away. Something else to consider is utility, some pens are dual with highlighters, come with 2 or 4 inks in one etc.. Two of our favorites and most popular are the LXD Stylus Pen and the Banner Pens. 2. Drinkware: During the winter months, coffee mugs and tumblers are a very popular items. Mugs are a very popular giveaway in churches, and everybody want their coffee or tea to go in a tumbler. In the summer months, insulated tumblers that keep your drink cold become more in demand. Also plastic cups on all sizes are a great seller for spring and summer picnics and outdoor activities. Our best seller in the mugs category  is the 11oz. C-Handle Mug which comes in many colors with white is the most affordable. The 16 oz.
