Customize Your Mailing
Your direct mail campaign has to be seen in order to be effective, and using a custom approach to your mail is the key to getting seen. Customizing your direct mail goes far beyond just using the customer’s name on the envelope. Names are a first step, not the whole approach.
Try using a custom-designed envelope including imagery, an eye-catching font, a color scheme and style sure to catch your client’s eye. Envelopes that look like they contain a greeting card are more likely to catch your client’s attention than simple white or manila envelopes. Custom envelopes from Letter Jacket will add a sense of style, making sure your direct mail is opened.
