Direct mail by itself, or as part of a larger integrated marketing campaign, works! Direct mail can help you capture and keep your recipient’s attention for a surprisingly small investment.  Direct mail competes favorably with all other channels, like websites, email etc., when it comes to creating awareness and interest. With each direct mail piece you can identify the recipient by name, and tailor the message to their unique interests. Regardless of the quantity, each piece can be cost effectively personalized.

Additional services include folding, inserting, inkjet addressing, tabbing, labeling, and bar coding.
