    Has anybody had good luck putting door hangers or flyers in the Newspaper box. I know this has been discussed on this before, but no one told about the results they had with the newspaper box.

    I have door hangers that I've been putting on doors but with limited time I need to look for a faster way.

    As far as i know it is illegal to put any time of advertising in mailboxes or newspaper boxes without proper postage. The reason i know this is because the post office called me and told me its a federal offense!!!. I told them i didn't know and said sorry blah blah blah. LOL

    Its not illegal if you put it in the NEWSPAPER BOX. its separate from the mailbox, and has nothing to do with USPS. So has anybody tried this?

    Last year I put about 5,000+ flyers out, mostly in paper boxes. I got about 25 calls I believe, so it was only like .5% :cry:

    Perhaps my flyer was too dull or something.
