    What's a good idea on sending out 10k cards. Design, print, mailing and all.

    I was told 2400 for 10k over sized cards, color both sides, designed, printed and mailed. Seemed like a pretty good rate.

    Ups store can do 5000 or more for .28 printed and delivered. Size is 6.5x11

    You can find way cheaper than .74

    I did the Eddm last year and it was driving me nuts because you have to split the cards into bundles of 50 and rubber band them with a different ticket.

    Even with the Eddm and got print a little over 500 you're still looking around 2000 and you have to handle them all. You can't drop them all at once either. They have a limit of maybe 5000 for eddm. I think I would pay 2400 all day to never have to touch them or design them.
