About Us

Our History

Founded in 2008 by Brian Johnson from Reading, PA, Mail Shark started as a direct mail company that developed direct mail programs for the pizza industry.

In 2012 Mail Shark purchased a 30,000 square foot facility that allowed our team to bring all design, printing, and direct mailing services in-house. With even greater control over our processes, Mail Shark provides the best direct mail and direct mail printing in the industry.

In 2016 our 30,000 square foot facility was expanded to 60,000 square feet to accommodate our growing customer base and our growing team.

Our Team

Unlike most companies that offer direct mail services, we are true direct mail experts and printing experts. Our team is made up of Account Executives, Account Specialists, Data Processors, Designers, Printing Experts, Production Experts, Marketers, and more. Our goal is to provide our clients with expert guidance from start to finish for the easiest direct mail campaign execution in the industry, as well as high quality direct mail printing at reasonable prices.

We understand the challenges businesses face:

  • The importance of cash flow
  • The need for effective marketing
  • The need for consistent execution, regardless of how busy you get

We take the time to learn about who your customer is and which of our many direct mailers will help you capture their attention. With this knowledge and our consultative approach, we are able to customize direct mail campaigns that not only meet our client’s needs and budgets but also increase their sales.

Mail Shark works with business owners across the United States to help them cost-effectively market their businesses by executing strategic direct mail campaigns, while also supporting related printing needs. We make direct mail easy. Our fully-customizable direct mail programs paired with a dedicated team of experts allow our customers to focus on their business, not their marketing efforts.

Our Approach to Direct Mail

mail-shark-mailingOur strategy and our most popular direct mail solution is our weekly mailing program. By mailing to a portion of our clients’ mailing list every week during each direct mail campaign, our clients’ target consumers receive multiple touches, which ensures better response rates, and our clients’ receive a consistent flow of new business throughout the execution of their direct mail campaigns.

With no money down and a weekly payment schedule, our weekly mailing program has helped thousands of businesses grow sales while minimizing cash flow problems and maintaining consistent marketing efforts.

Mail Shark helps you keep your marketing fresh by offering a mix of postcards, magnet postcards, menus, brochures, flyers and interactive postcards.
