Best company to go through for direct mail flyers?

I'm looking to do some direct mailing post cards/flyers.
What companies do you know that is is fair on price & printing costs?
Looking to do around 3000 mailings in my local town.

For one stop shop, Andea (banner at the top of this page) seems to be the best price. You might save a little if you have them designed, printed and mailed by 3 different companies. The only bad thing about Andeas, I have heard that their design department is not very good. I have not used them, but telling you what I have read here on LS.

We are a one stop shop, same as Andea, however, our design department is not sub-par as walker-talker mentioned. We also don't charge by the hour for designing, we offer a one time cost, that's it, as many changes as you want!

We also have a large selection of designs already created for the lawn/landscaping industry that have worked wonders for other businesses.

Don't want to keep tooting our own horn, but you should at least get a pack of our free samples. We can mail them out to you pretty quickly, you can request them here: http://www.postcardmania.com/free-sa...ndex.php?sec=4

Make sure to include that you saw us on Lawnsite.com

Go right to the source. The US mail has a post card for the cost of a stamp; You can upload your message and logo, mail list, etc. Works great. The delivery, that is.

Delivery is great, but it's the results that get you leads and customers.

We had Plan-It Graphics do everything for us this year. All we provided him was our mailing list. We had different options on the size of the card and postage options too.

We got behind the 8 Ball a little bit and got a late start. We ended up mailing 4x6 postcards with first class postage since they are delivered in 3-4 days. Next time we will send out a week or two earlier and use a larger postcard and use standard postage rates. The postage will be about the same.

Call Bob(www.plan-itgraphics.com)... His design work is some of the best i've seen. He own's a lawn care company himself(in fact I called him today and he was fertilizing lawns), so he knows our industry, and his prices are good too.
