Postcards

Postcards are one of the most effective forms of direct mail marketing today.

With dynamic content printing, each card can be unique to your customer or prospect. Personalization substantially increases your ROI. For example, you can add the recipient's name or use a personalized message to direct your audience to take a specific action.

Letters

Letters are typically used for correspondence, invitations, billing and statements, donation solicitations, and informational messages.

Mail delivered in a #10 envelope is the most widely used mail type. It can be highly personalized to increase readership response rate and help get your envelope opened. Using taglines will help you get your piece noticed, while color will help it stand out. 

Parcels

Parcels are small packages. This includes:

  • small boxes
  • tubes
  • thick envelopes
  • bubble mailers

Parcels are a great way to send out samples of your products to existing clients. AMi can help design and package these packages for best impact. We also offer Pick and Pack services to put it all together.

1st Class

Postcards, letters, flats and small packages can be sent using First-Class Mail.

First class mail is a faster way to deliver and typically arrives within 2-3 business days. Postage amount is based on size and weight, which means using First-Class Mail can be expensive.

Standard

Standard mail is a way to save money when sending more than 200 pieces or 50lbs of advertising mail. We can ship your mail close to the end user, thus ensuring all your pieces hit specific in-home dates across the country.

This requires several steps before printing and preparing mail for the post office. First we collaborate with you to determine exactly what you are looking for, we determine what message you want to send, when you want this message sent out, and which audience you want to target. After all of this is completed we create it, you proof it, and then it gets mailed out.

Standard mail delivery can range from 3-day service to 2 weeks if going cross-country. If your mailers are going to be mailed out of state, we use our technology to improve the delivery down to a 3-5 day window.

Non-Profit

If you are a non-profit organization, you can apply for non-profit mailing privileges and receive deep postage discounts using our non-profit mailing permit. If you already have non-profit mailing privileges we can process the mailing and help maximize your discount.

Inquire with our business development staff to find out how we can help, and receive more information about Non-Profit discounts.

Get The Mail Out

Have you ever found yourself wondering, "How am I ever going to get this mailed?” Sometimes projects can become a burden and you don’t know what else to do besides ask for help. That’s exactly what one of our clients did, and it paid off significantly.

The client came to us needing to insert five items of different shapes and sizes into 100,000 large envelope. Some of these items were personalized, so it was imperative that the correct inserts match to the correct envelopes. Not only were we inserting these items, but we were also informed the items needed to be printed and mailed within two weeks.

We sat down and devised different ways to ensure the personalized information made its way into the right envelope. We also had a few meetings with the U.S. Postal Service to make sure what our client wanted printed on the envelope was mailable.

Once the specifics were figured out, it was time to get the mailings out.

We worked around the clock to make sure that all deadlines and specifications were met and the customer had a huge response to the mailing. Requests for the product increased and the customer continues to mail with us regularly. Our policy of “do whatever it takes for the customer” proved that we were the right company for the job.
