  • Every Door Direct Mail

    The Postal Service’s Every Door Direct Mail program offers mailers an attractive new option for getting their message out. Every Door Direct Mail is essentially a streamlined process for sending saturation mail to a targeted area or areas without a mailing list. There are two sides to EDDM, to serve the needs of two different kinds of postal customers.

    Retail customers can send up to 5,000 pieces without a permit account. The pieces have to qualify as Standard Flats and weigh no more than 3.3 oz, and they have to be entered and paid for at the post office location that delivers to the area for which the mailing is intended. The mailing needs no addresses, and can be sent to every address in a carrier route, neighborhood or zip code. The sender needs only to add a USPS-specified generic salutation in the address area. Mailers can use a USPS-provided generic permit and pay at the front counter with cash, check or credit card.

    The retail option is good for small, local businesses looking to increase their profile, and particularly enticing to those who aren’t used to filling out postal forms and keeping up with the latest rules and regulations. But there’s another side to EDDM, intended to accommodate larger mailings and wider audiences. Sending a campaign this way allows for larger pieces, as well as more of them, but requires the mailer to have an active permit account. Such mailings must be entered at the BMEU much like a regular mailing.

    At iPresort, we’re ready to help both kinds of customers realize the advantages of Every Door Direct Mail. Whether it’s inkjet printing the salutation and address line info for a small, local mailing here in the Dallas area, or doing all of the preparation work for a large, national campaign, we know how to make EDDM work for your company.

    3. Hi, ED. Thanks for sharing your success with EDDM. We’ve found that Every Door Direct Mail works best for neighborhood stores like dry cleaners, dental offices, restaurants and other businesses trying to build local traffic. It is definitely not the best solution for a business that needs to reach a more targeted audience. We also believe that when printed with a QR code or Purl it can make an offer mobile and be even more effective.

      We’ve seen a TON of success with local businesses mailing every door direct mailers. While many direct mail pros are criticizing the lack of personalization, a compelling local EDDM piece with an attractive offer beats the pants off a PURL or QR code. We’ve seen response rates in the 20%-30%+ range – which I’ve never seen on a segmented list with purls. Just our 2 cents.

    8. Every Door Direct Mail Retail program allows US businesses to bring their marketing material to their local post office and mail for 14.2 cents per postcard. Previously to the start of this program the post office would charge 44 cents for a stamp. This new price equals a 66% savings off the cost of that stamp. Best of all, customers do not have to buy a mailing list or pay a mail house to prepare the mail for them. Never before has it been so easy for businesses to mail to their prospects. this is very helpful for our business
