The USPS® has a method for you to reach local prospects for your business called EDDM®, also known as Every Door Direct Mail®. You literally send your detailed message to every door on a postal route in an area you choose. The primary benefit of this service is to reach a local audience to increases your profits, and EDDM® postcards can help.
Why Use EDDM®?
You are able to save time and money by easily selecting mailing routes or zip code(s). This can all be done with the mapping tool.
Do you want to reach your entire city, a radius from your business, or just one zip code? Print your every door direct mail postcards, choose the size of a route and send up to 5,000 EDDM® postcards per day per zip code. It’s easier and costs about as much as an email marketing campaign. With email marketing you spend time:
- Creating a mailing list
- Getting your audience’s permission to contact them
- Writing or hiring a writer to create content for the list
Consider your hourly rate for these actions; how much does your email marketing campaign cost per person on your list? By engaging Primoprint for your EDDM® campaign, the costs are between 21 cents and 75 cents per person.
Now Offering Full Service EDDM®
Reach customers as little as 26 cents per home including postage! To learn more, please view our Full Service EDDM® video tutorial.
Reach Local Businesses and Consumers
Is your internet marketing campaign reaching your target market? While search engine and social media marketing methods embrace localization, the EDDM® postcard service already reaches the potential clients surrounding your business. With internet marketing, your contact list includes people from every location.
With Every Door Direct Mail®, you know they are close to you because you chose the route. Since these oversized postcards can reach every door on the route chosen by ZIP code(s), you can reach businesses as well as consumers, making sure your message is in their hands. You can exclude businesses too and only reach households on the route. You build your brand and expand your reach with this service.

An eye catching, graphic display combined with a message is an effective way to generate leads for any business.
Postcards are one of the least expensive forms of advertising. A direct mailing campaign can be implemented in a brief period of time. Postcard marketing can be used for all business types: lawyers, lawn service companies, real estate agents and restaurants, to name a few. They have been proven to generate more traffic to a website and bring additional foot traffic to local retail stores.
Postcards are a diverse marketing tool. They can be used as flyers, newsletters or product brochures. A discount offer can be printed on them, allowing the postcard to be used as a coupon. Postcards are sometimes described as an oversized business cards and are another way to help brand a business. The ability to reach a targeted market is simplified by using postcards. Fewer advertising dollars are spent on people that are not interested in your product than if, for instance, you placed a newspaper ad. In addition, they make following up with existing customers easier and less time consuming.
Postcards are nearly always read by the recipient since the message is in perfect view. In a recent study, 79% of professionals acknowledge that direct mail with postcards can be an effective or very effective marketing tool. Recipients don’t have to spend time opening it as with a letter. Postcards in vibrant colors or with attractive designs stand out, making it more likely to be read.
There are also additional costs involved in folding and inserting letters into an envelope. Postcards don’t take up a lot of space and can be saved for later reference in a purse or hung on the refrigerator. Postcard mailing provides the best opportunity for having your message read.
Also, postcards are the most cost effective means of testing an advertising campaign. If a business has a new product that they would like to test market, a postcard mailing will gauge the customers’ response without informing the competition. Postcards are a great way to test a specific product price range. A few postcards can be mailed to determine the response rate at a given price. They can be used to test ad campaigns and several ad campaigns can be mailed and tracked by printing a tracking code on them. Having the customer provide the tracking code when they respond to the offer will help determine which ad campaign generates the most interest.
In addition to printing postcards, Primoprint also offers Every Door Direct Mail postcards, a new USPS program that gives small businesses an inexpensive way to reach local customers. Learn more by reading How Every Door Direct Mail Can Help Your Business.

How Every Door Direct Mail® Can Help Your Business
All of the methods have their own pros and cons; they are all different when it comes down to how much money is spent and the effort required for each marketing campaign.
One option which has seen a recent uptick is usage is direct mail, specifically Every Door Direct Mail®, a service offered by the U.S. Postal Service®.
EDDM®’s popularity lies in its simple use and ability to reach far: no specific addresses are needed to be collected by the business for the postcard to be sent out. A local business simply selects a zip code, address area, or mail route, and provides the necessary postcards to the post office.
Then, the USPS® will deliver every piece of mail supplied to the specified route. Business mailings must include at least 200 mail pieces and can’t exceed 5,000 per day.
One of best aspects of Every Door Direct Mail® is the flexibility, as advertisements mailed can include a variety of messages. However, they must meet the size requirements. Some great examples of how businesses are using EDDM® include coupons, menus, grand opening announcements, general announcements, giveaways, contests and many more.
It’s cost effective, with prices starting as low as 16 cents per piece of mail, depending on the size and route chosen.
