Targeted “Smart” Saturation Mailing List Service

Cover 100% of Your Market!
Many companies find that the majority of their business comes from those who live within a short distance of their location. Saturation mailings (aka bulk mail or mass mail) deliver your message to everyone in a specified carrier route or zip code.

Spectrum’s marketing and data experts use area penetration reporting and mapping tools to help you identify the best prospects right down to the mail carrier route level.

In many cases, targeted saturation mail can offer a huge advantage when mailing your entire market because the post office offers significantly reduced postal rates for mailings that go to a complete mail carrier route and therefore don’t have to be specially sorted.

EDDM vs Smart Saturation

Looking for EDDM® Direct Mail?

Many businesses have come to believe that EDDM®, or Every Door Direct Mail®, is the least expensive form of direct mail. This simply isn’t the case. The perception has been perpetuated by the USPS and many direct mail providers looking to keep the execution of direct mail campaigns as easy as possible. They are only capable of providing simple saturation mailings without personalization or variable data.

However, Spectrum doesn’t cut any corners! Our team can help you develop optimized direct mail marketing campaigns using personalization and higher ROI mailers while excluding wasteful addresses. This results in increased campaign ROI.
