Could your business benefit from reaching every home in your neighborhood?
Updated: Apr 10
Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) could be for you! EDDM is a service from the USPS that lets you blanket an entire mail carrier route with your postcards for a discounted postage rate.
What kinds of businesses should use EDDM Mailers?
• Retailers: Auto dealers, restaurants and pizzerias, pharmacies, clothing stores, furniture dealers, flower shops, coffee shops, bakeries, and more.
• Service-based businesses: Attorneys, health-care professionals, dry cleaners, home-improvement companies, real estate firms, and more.
What qualifies a mailing for EDDM services?
To take advantage of the special postage discount, your EDDM postcards campaign must meet specific criteria:
EDDM sizes — Every Door Direct Mail offers a flexible range of sizes, making it ideal for announcing sales, sending coupons, and much more. Three of the most popular options are postcards (6.5" x 9"), oversized postcards (8.5" x 11"), and tri-fold menus (4.25" x 14"). For additional sizes give us a call.
You must mail only to zip codes in USPS door to door routes (we can tell you if they are)
Your mailing must be at least 200 pieces AND at least one complete carrier route (So a mailing of 200 that only covers 70% of one route would not qualify, nor would a mailing of 58 that covers an entire route)
If you decide that EDDM is right for your business, we will make sure all of these criteria are met!
Why Wouldn’t A Business Use EDDM?
To put it simply: Even if you’re saving money on EDDM USPS postage, if you’re not targeting the right people, you’re wasting money. EDDM works well for services that everyone needs (dental, auto repair, food, etc.), but less well – in terms of response rate – for niche products and services (child care, trombone repair, high-end real estate, etc.), simply because not everyone in your area wants or needs what you offer.
