Default Valpak direct mail ad

This ad costs $2050 for 60,000 envelopes.

Each envelop costs 3.4 cents, which is much cheaper than trying to print and mail it yourself.

I mail six times a year for a grand total of $12,300.

Return is good, four to five times my money usually.

Valpak designs the mailers for their clients but I decided to stick with and pay extra for my graphic artist who does all my work. Jack Ketrow with
www.jackdesignx.com

His work is really stunning in my opinion and the ad stands out from the rest.

Hand addressing your envelopes in blue ink will help as well.

black is common, blue is less common and not used at the standard ink color. Anything you can do to make direct mail stand out from the crowd will help your mail get opened

Well, I dont know...I dont like direct mailing tool, once our company tried this in attend to our potential clients and have neative results. So it is not my favorite method.

Default Sending Standard Mail Software

We are in Direct Mailing business for over 26 years.
If you need to buy Software. You must consider the high end software. Specially when IMB Barcode is activated in the future! I use the SAP Business edition for $3000+ per year. You can also lookup BCC software.

Your second choice is to use a mailing house to create the file and paperwork and e-mail it to you. including CASS, NCOA, 3602 or 3600 report and all tray tags. This could be from $40 to $100 per file.
