Every Door Direct Mail

Looking to take a more “saturated” approach to your direct mail campaigns? The Post Office has you covered too.

Every Door Direct Mail enables you to extend your customer reach via saturation mail without the need for mailing lists, permits, and the associated fees. With Every Door Direct Mail, you create a saturation mailing without applying individual names and addresses to each mail-piece. Mail pieces are then “saturated” throughout a carrier route, zip code, or entire city. This can result in significant cost savings for both postage and mailing preparation.
