Now, pay attention to the fact not all direct mail fulfillment services are created equal. I have looked at close to a dozen and pricing is across the board. You want to look for a flat-rate fee, not a progressive discount. This way, you don’t get hooked by the offer on the home page come to find out you need to order 5000 mail pieces to get that deal!
I’ve been using YellowLetterShop and have been impressed. Their prices are the best in town, without a doubt. Only .19 cents to print the letter, .10 cents to fold/stuff, and either .39 or .49 cents depending on if you use a standard mail stamp or first class mail stamp. Believe me, there prices ROCK! Just to give you an idea, I paid $165 for a 245 mail-piece order today, while the same order at a major Yellow Letter distributor was $286 – this is because it requires a bulk order! But, not with YellowLetterShop, you get the same service at a better price!
