Direct mail/flyers,.etc

Howdy folks,
I'm starting a new lawn care(fert&weed control) business this year
and I'm looking for either software or a company that
handles direct mailers that can target certain zip codes.

Back in the 90's I used Phone select for this project
and it worked very well. For $100 you would get 4 cd's
each for a different part of the US, and you could put in
say, 123 main st. smithtown, ny and then search a 5 mile radius
or 10, 20, .etc I had a print shop make up post cards and then
I would print the labels about 100 per night and for the price
it was very effective.

Phone select is gone and I can't find anything on them.

Is anybody using software or a service that is reasonable?

Thanks for reading,

Does anybody know if you would be able to design and print the brochure at home or the postcard and then go to the post office and let them setup a massive direct mailing.

direct mail

I contacted the post office here in N.C. and they said sorry
can't help. But, a friend in florida told me the post office worked
with him with a free list. So, it's all here say & the post office won't sell
me a list or help in any way.
