    Are you dealing with a company like ADVO that goes out in the mailers or the post office direct? Are they doing the printing and mailing? Also without going into your business or personal numbers, I would like to know what something like this costs. Thanks for any info, I hope it works out for you.

    Just go on their website and look. I just put in to mail to everyone in my county and its 5,200 addresses and it $752.00 plus $330.00 for the flyers. So for $1,100 I can send them to 5,200 homes and P.O. boxes. Think I might try this.

    Wow, very cool. Thanks, I had no clue the usps website would have such indepth information. I have 7200 adresses for $1110 plus expenses. Only downside is those are just county residents, 90% of my money comes from vacation homes.

    Sorry my last statement was for EDDM through the post office. I was responding to two threads and got them mixed up. As far as the post cards I already sent out they are through Holidynamics. I cant remember exactly how many I sent out but I think It was around 1500 and it cost me $1,800.

    Damn for an extra 700 you can get 10k sent out on 8.5x11.
    Mine went out last week. And of course sandy has messed that up. It's a mess around here no power back for at least 7-10 days as long as 20 or more days where we are. And my business line is down. Still have email thoughts with all the extra clean up and volunteering I'm hoping we can get her going for this Christmas season.
