You should talk to a mass mailing house for the best rates. A

  Meanwhile, go to VistaPrint, set it up with USPS EDDM and see what it will cost.

Hi Tony and Susanne, Are you asking about Everydoor Direct rates including the postcard or are you asking about first class postal mail including the postcard?  The difference in cost is remarkable and you can mail a much larger postcase using EVDD compared to 1st class and the cost for the EVDD is actually less.

Barabara is the direct mail specialist.  I'd suggest EDDM or talking to a company that specializes in this type of mailing, as Ron and Alexandra Seigel said.

EDDM (Every door direct mail), is 17.8 cents plus the cost of printing. You can mail a postcard up to 12x15 inches with 5,000 pieces to your zip codes of choice. A more managable size is 9x12 not risking that the mailman would fold it. The next day you can do another 5,000 pieces.

I never get close to that many postcards but I believe Click2Mail gets you going in B &W for under 40 cents, albeit with 25,000 pieces weekly.

I'd like to see, and most likely it has already happened, the ROI for huge scale post card mailings. I belive Barbara commented on this but those now doing big mailings perhaps you could chime in with some results.
