Our EDDM Process

What is Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM)

  • United States Postal Service (USPS) mail is divided into zip codes and then subdivided into postal carrier routes.  Each carrier route has between 400-800 deliveries in them. 
  • Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) allows you to send to individual Postal routes without need for mailing lists or a permit. (both of which can be very costly)
  • Postage is only 17.7¢ per piece
  • Postcards are over sized – not standard 4x6 or 5x7.  We have many sizes (6.5 x 8), (6.5 x 9), (6.5 x 12), (8.5 x 11), (9 x 12)– All have the same postage rate (17.7¢). This ensures that your message will be seen first as they are larger than average size.
98% Of consumers bring in their mail the day it's received
