EDDM® is an easy, low-cost direct mail solution
About Every Door Direct Mail®
EDDM is a bulk mailing option offered by the United States Postal Service that allows your business to reach potential customers without knowing their address. Simply choose the mailing routes you feel would benefit your business and your mail pieces will be delivered to every active address on your designated route.The United States Postal Service® created EDDM® as an affordable targeted advertising technique that makes it easy to reach "every door" using an online mapping tool.
The service is ideal for:
- Service providers
Why Order EDDM?
- No mailing list required - Instead of printing names and addresses, EDDM® utilizes a "simplified addressing" format that targets local postal customers in a radius of up to 5 miles. And because you no longer need to print names and addresses, you can forget all the typical ink-jet printing and labeling hassles.
- No mailing permit required
- Small Runs - Create extensive local mailing campaigns or smaller mailing campaigns to test the water in your neighborhood. There is a 5,000 piece maximum per day, per post office but the minimum quantity to qualify is just 200 print pieces.
Once you receive it, you'll just need to bundle it for mailing, fill out the required USPS paperwork, and take it to the post office or we can do it all for you.
If you need something delivered quickly EDDM is not the best option for you. Average EDDM delivery times fall between 7-14 days from the time it is delivered to the post office.
As long as you order your EDDM printing and mailing at least one to two weeks prior to when you want it to be arriving in mailboxes, you should be safe, generally speaking. Instances that fall towards the 14 day mail delivery tend to be mailers that are either being mailed to physically remote mail routes or mailers that are sent during peak mail volume such as right around the holidays or Black Friday.

Specifically related to corporate level, the savings that are being incurred owed to W2P Software are incredible and rather stunning. Some of these bottom line benefits being enjoyed include:
Saving of Time
W2P Templates - pre-formatted templates that allow for repurposing of text and information in a document, saves tremendous time for marketers. It is also essential to mention here that using a template should not be confused as being simple. Not only are these templates flexible, they are rather sophisticated and automate processes by shrinking required time from hours to mere seconds.
Fulfillment Errors Reduced
In a corporate environment where high volumes are handled, any errors can be disastrous and costly. Since this aspect is often manually handled, error rates are often rather high. Web to print can bring the errors down to zero.
Design Duplication and Error Considerably Reduced/Eliminated
Regional offices, design agencies and other related parties all use outdated material to create their marketing collateral resulting in duplication and errors in design. W2P Software has come over this problem as well through centralizing template designs. Not only does this save cost through eliminating error in content and duplication, it also helps in saving time.
Rapid Response Time
Time is everything in the corporate world, the more you save time, the more you excel. W2P software solutions have automated processes to the extent where companies now generate material required in matter of minutes and hours, depending on required volumes.
Green Revolution in Printing
Although this is among the secondary W2P Software benefits derived from print on demand model, it is however an advantage. Not only are the processes of printing greener, it also gathers that extra marketing advantage.
