Advantages of Every Door Direct Mail

Every Door Direct Mail is a US Postal Service program that enables your business to send postcards to specific areas of your choice. There is no need to purchase a mailing list or print specific addresses on your mail piece, so there are no mail preparation costs. The US Postal Service offers a discounted postage rate of 18.7¢ each for EDDM marketing pieces, which is far lower than postage stamps or bulk rate mailings.

With the Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) you send mail to potential customers by neighborhoods, so you don't need to address the cards to specific names and street addresses. You choose the areas you want to target and the post office delivers your printed pieces to the addresses in your desired areas. Like reguar bulk rate mail, with EDDM you can choose to mail to just local routes in Chicago, IL, or even nationwide.

  1. ordering printing is easyStep 1:  You choose neighborhoods (carrier routes) that you want to mail to on the USPS's EDDM website.

  3. Step 3:  You drop them at the Post Office, and they deliver them.

Is EDDM Right for Your Business?

EDDM is perfect for many businesses whose prospects are the local residents and businesses in specific area(s), such as neigborhoods in or near Chicago. 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. Like reguar bulk rate mail, with EDDM you can choose to mail to just local routes in Chicago, throughout Illinois, or even nationwide.

EDDM Disadvantages

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.
