Online pricing is convenient, but for print and mail everything should be customized for your specific project. Often times printing a specific size or paper weight can save thousands in postage costs as well as providing a completely different look and feel. Instead of inputting specs into an online calculator it is better to walk through your project and goals with an expert who can provide the lowest price for the objectives you are looking to accomplish.
Often times online print and mail prices are on the lower side, but that is because you get what you pay for. Many times these are cookie cutter solutions with low quality paper and list hygiene that may not represent your company adequately.
Anytime you see postage advertised online beware. Postage should be calculated based on your list, and any company that has an all inclusive pricing is likely to be making money on your postage. At Action Mail we prefer to estimate postage high and charge the amount that is owed to the post office for your mailing once we have calculated the exact rate.
Online direct mail pricing is available, but even if this looks like the cheapest option keep in mind that mailing can be complex and there are often different tricks to reduce postage and printing costs as well as increase ROI. It is best to contact us to receive a customized quote for your specific project and goals. In the long run this could save you lots of money and our direct mail and print experts are happy to give advice on the most cost effective methods to print and mail as well as suggestions to increase ROI.
