    I had a meeting with a bulk mail service today to look over a demo postcard that I want them to mail out to residential homes within certain zip code areas. I was wondering what you all thought of the rates.

    Printing of 15,000 postcards (by another company) = $331.00 +tax

    Bulk mail rate at .13 cents a piece $1950.00

    Service "labor costs" $610.00

    Total to mail 15,000 postcards =2891.00

    I said I'd have to think it over.

    Any thoughts?

    The printing cost looks good.

    I do consulting work for a mail house here in New Hampshire. Your pricing quote for Services Labor is high. This company would charge you around $400 for services. Your postage for a saturation list is about right (13 cents +/- ).

    BTW, no sales tax here in NH on the printing and I am not trying to solicit business in case someone is offended.
