    A company I hired had the 5,000 postcards printed, have to buy the mailing list ,postage,setup fee,and the mailing company fees to do the work.Cost less for postage if you do whole mail routes,that is you pick out an area and you get a discount if every home in the mailman's route gets ones. You have to go to your main post office and look at the mail routes and write down the code. The company I used goes with you to make sure .Check with your local chamber office they usually have mailing company that's a chamber member.
