Mail On Your Schedule with Our EDDM® Mailing Services

Every Door Direct Mail®, commonly known as EDDM®, is a direct mailing service offered by the United States Postal Service. This do-it-yourself direct mail option gives business owners the ability to pay bulk mail rates without having to purchase a mailing permit.

The USPS Every Door Direct Mail® program does require more work on your part than a full-service direct mail option. For example, you’ll need to select your mailing area, have your pieces printed, fill out paperwork, bundle your pieces by carrier route, and drop them off at your local post office.

Is EDDM® Right For Your Business?

It’s important to know the facts before deciding whether EDDM® is right for your business. The chart below details how our EDDM® Ready-to-Go and EDDM® Print Only services compare to our Full-Service Saturation Mailing. You’ll find that you get similar price discounts to EDDM® without all the hard work.

EDDM® is time-intensive for most business owners. You have to choose your own mailing areas, bundle your pieces, fill out paperwork, and drop your mail off at the post office yourself. While our EDDM® Ready-to-Go service takes care of the carrier route selection, bundling, and paperwork for you, our EDDM® Print Only service does not. On the other hand, our Full-Service Saturation option includes things like mail sortation, postage, and delivery to the post office, making it the most convenient way to do a saturation mailing.

Using saturation or EDDM® for your direct mail campaigns earns you some of the lowest postage rates out there. If you choose our Full-Service Saturation Mailing option, not only will you save on postage, but we’ll finance the cost of your direct mail campaign up front. This makes it easier for businesses on a tight budget to get started. If you choose either of our EDDM® options, you’ll have to pay for the print job up front.

EDDM® does not require you to purchase a mailing list. Since there’s no list, your pieces won’t have addresses on them so it’s more difficult to ensure deliverability. EDDM® also doesn’t let you segment your list beyond removing PO boxes and business addresses. Our Full-Service Saturation Mailings help you stretch your marketing dollars further by removing business addresses, PO boxes, and residential addresses (such as apartments, seasonal dwellings, and drop addresses).

If you’re looking to reach a very specific audience, a saturation mailing probably isn’t your best option. Instead, you should go with our Full-Service Targeted Mailing.
