Starting in April of 2011, the US Post Office began a new mailing program know as Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM). The EDDM postal program is the least expensive way to mail to specific areas with direct mail. Essentially a saturation mailing, EDDM allows you to send mail to potential customers by neighborhoods at a much lower rate than postage stamps and is even less expensive than bulk rate mail. You simply choose what carrier routes you wish to mail to.
The US Postal Service offers a discounted postage rate of 17.6¢ each for EDDM Retail marketing pieces. EDDM postage costs less than stamps and even bulk rate postage. There are no mail preparation costs either. Because the cards are delivered to every address on a carrier route, there is no need to purchase a mailing list, nor print names and addresses on the postcards.
With the Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) you send mail to potential customers by neighborhoods. You choose the areas you want to target and the post office delivers your printed pieces to the addresses in your desired areas. Like regular bulk rate mail, with EDDM you can choose to mail to just local routes, throughout the state, or even nationwide.
Some common types of businesses and organizations that typically benefit from using Every Door Direct Mail include
With EDDM you can pinpoint your target market and the USPS delivers them directly to every mailbox. You can even determine exactly when it mails by when you drop them off at the designated post office.
EDDM is perfect for many businesses whose prospects are the local residents and businesses in specific area(s). EDDM is a bulk mailing (200 to 5,000 pieces per day) of identical mail pieces that are delivered to every household and business on specific carrier routes. You control which zip codes and carrier routes you want to mail to by using the EDDM Tool at the USPS website.
EDDM works best for businesses for whom nearly anyone in a geographic area is a reasonably good prospect, from service businesses and restaurants to churches and political mailings.
Because EDDM is mailed to everyone in a carrier route, it is not a good choice if your prospects are a highly targeted group. For example, if your products and serives are ONLY purchased by Medical Doctors, etc. In such a case you will need a quality mailing list that contains only addresses likely to be interested in your products and services.
However, by carefully choosing your carrier routes, you can effectively target potential customers even without a mailing list: upper-income neighborhoods, residential areas with lots of children, etc. Many businesses find that the savings offered by EDDM offsets the fact that many who receive their marketing material are not necessarily the most likely buyers of their products or services. The USPS website offers domographic data on their carrier route selection tool.
The US Postal Service has specific requirements for EDDM postcard size and papers. Summit Printing carries nine standard postcard sizes and three different paper options that are all EDDM approved by the USPS.
Our EDDM Price List includes shipping, so it's easy to figure out your bottom-line cost. If you have any questions don't hesitate to give us a call or send us an email and we'll be happy to answer your questions.
