Choose the Right Mailing Services for Your Business
What Are Direct Mailing Services?
Let’s face it – everyone’s online nowadays. If you’re an emerging business or a small organization looking to get noticed by your target audience, chances are your market is already bombarded with digital ads from the competition. To stand out from the rest, you may want to try going against the grain. Hear us out.
Direct mail services are a surefire way to get noticed, simply because everyone is wired to check the mail as soon as it lands in their mailbox or on their doorstep. It’s tangible so it’s easier to remember compared to a social media post that instantly disappears as soon as they hit the refresh button. And the best part? You don’t have to do much. That’s right – most of the hard work will be shouldered by us.
Here at NextDayFlyers, we offer two types of direct mailing service: Direct Mail and Every Door Direct Mail®. Learn more about them in the COMPARISON tab.

- Which type of marketing product do I want to send out as a mailer?
- When do I need my campaign to be mailed?

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Direct Mailing Services
Does USPS have specific rules for direct mail?
You may check out USPS’ comprehensive guide on preparing a direct mail campaign here.
Will my acquired mailing list from NextDayFlyers expire?
Yes. You’d have to use a new mailing list after six months.
Is there a way to save on costs when signing up for a direct mailing service?
Yes, there are! Here are some tips to keep in mind:
- Double check your mailing list before sending. Remove duplicate addresses and deceased recipients if there are any.
- Keep your budget in mind when choosing a postcard size since the size and weight of the mailpiece affects the postage cost. For reference, letter size is the most affordable choice.
- Request for proof so you can check your designs for errors before printing.
Do you have postcard design templates?
Yes, we have free templates for EDDM postcards. You can check them out in the Templates tab.
What file formats are acceptable to use for my mailing list?
We accept XLS, XLSX, and CSV files. However, we recommend that you use our mailing list template for best results.
What would happen to my postcard if the recipient changed address?
In case of relocations, you have two options: you can opt to have the mail forwarded to the original recipient or you can just leave it with the current occupant. The first option is best for personalized mail and select client lists, while the second choice is recommended for local business advertising.
