Direct Mailing Services

Reach Your Ideal Audience

One of the most important elements of any campaign is your direct mailing list. Businesses, non-profits, and retailers use targeted mailing lists to reach the customers and prospects that matter most to them.

Using targeted and personalized print communications with Variable Data Printing (VDP) can improve response rates and the overall marketing objective. Spectrum can personalize your mailings using our data services and in-house digital printing solutions. Plus marketing personalization helps increase engagement and response rates.

Our direct mail experts make it easy for you by helping to determine which mailing list approach will result in the best campaign performance. Depending on your objectives, we will advise on the best combination of mailing list strategy and direct marketing program to craft successful campaigns.

Customer Mailing List Services

Your existing customers represent your greatest business asset.
You have likely spent an enormous amount of time, effort and money developing your customer list. In addition to being the lifeblood of your business, your customer list is also the strongest list for your next direct mail campaign.

Don’t make the mistake of believing that your customers will always come back.
Competitors are also targeting your valuable existing customers.  Make sure you are always reaching out with new incentives for them to return.

Build relationships with data.
By leveraging your customer base, we can help you find new customers and prospects. Our data mining tools will utilize your customer list and data to find like-minded prospects with similar demographic and/or geographic traits – resulting in more effective acquisition programs.

Personalization & Variable Data



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.  By adding additional filters and demographics such as median household income, dwelling types, seasonal dwellings, apartments, and dropped addresses, we can reduce waste resulting in increased campaign ROI.

Reduced Postal Rates When Mailing Entire Carrier Route
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.

EDDM vs Smart Saturation Mailing

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.

Read our blog post on the EDDM® Myth for more information and analysis.
