    If your getting .24 per for mailing thats a list price. If your doing saturation mailing that price should be anywhere from .13-.19 but no higher.

    And its a 6x4 Postcard...The post office always loves to correct me.

    Thats to much for printing. CLUBFLYERS.com you can get that many for $200. IM not sure what your rates are for direct mailing but I just got a quote for $2400 for 10K postcards delivered. Thats 3 drops of 3333 at a time. I can also chose what areas/post routes to mail them to. They also tell me the median income for what ever areas I decide to go with.

    Im not sure how good these rates are for direct mailng but I do know that the rates for the flyers are very hard to beat.

    Good luck
