First mailer did good but not so good the second time around. Could have been a timing issue tho. The season had already started when the second batch went out.

that is what we are doing aswell. Were sending two sets of maillings about 4 weeks apart, but we're also splinting each of the mailings into two seperate mailings to give us alittle more time without getting all the calls and estimates in a weeks time. Basically area1 gets there 1st mailling, then area2 gets their first mailing, then area1 gets 2nd mailing, then area2 gets 2nd mailing. We also ave additional mailings designed and ready to hit any areas a third time that we amay waant

I would hate to see the postage bill on a 35k mailing.

$4865 would be the cost here if you were just doing 5.5 x 8.5 postcards to mail carrier routes. Maybe cheaper if he has his own permit.

Wright....what are you mailing out....postcards? What size?

Thanks
