Are you thinking about launching a targeted print advertising campaign? You might want to consider EDDM postcard printing. EDDM stands for Every Door Direct Mail and it’s a hassle-free, cheap, yet effective way of getting the message to your target audience. If you’re a health service provider, for example, you can print EDDM postcards then mail them out to those living near your place of business. But how would you know the names and owners of the houses near you? Instead of putting together your own mailing list, you can simply look for a printing company that offers EDDM services. Basically, they will work with the USPS or the local post office in your area. You just need to choose a zip code or narrow down the mailing list to a certain demographic or age group. By doing so, you don’t have to spend money on printed cards advertising to people who might not be interested with your products or services at all.
Now, if you are considering using EDDM mailing as part of your print advertising campaign, how can you choose a good printing company? First, make sure that they do offer Direct Mailing Services. As mentioned earlier, the printing company would work with the USPS. Once you’re done choosing the design, they will take care of the USPS requirements for you. This way, you don’t need to do any heavy lifting – the printing company does all that, even the bundling of the cards.
Second, just as it is when choosing any printing service provider, make sure that they offer good quality prints. Offset is generally superior in terms of quality than digital prints – although you can still opt for the latter if you are on a limited budget. Check on the paper thickness and the size of the EDDM postcard printing materials. Whatever you choose should still fit the requirements of the USPS for direct mail marketing.
Third, look for a printing company that offers great value for your money, and excellent customer service. Compare three to four printing companies, read the feedback of their customers, then narrow down your choices and a make an informed selection from there. By doing your research, you can work with the best printing company that can take care of your direct mail marketing needs.
