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 19.1¢ 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 (19.1¢). This ensures that your message will be seen first as they are larger than average size.
EDDM® is perfect for the following types of businesses:
- All Contractors
- Auto dealerships
- Auto Service and Repair

There are several regulations and rules for the Every Door Direct Mail® (EDDM®) product, but don't worry - We will handle them by:
- Verifying the counts

- Packaging up the mail for shipment
