Hassle-Free and High-Quality Every Door Direct Mail® Printing

Need to create personalized messaging that will reach your target demographic? Print EDDM®-compliant postcards that fulfill the USPS’ requirements. This direct mail strategy lets you reach a specific demographic at affordable rates. You can easily promote your business and expand your current market reach. Just use the USPS’ mapping tool to see which postal route fits your potential customer profile based on demographic data like age range and household income. Once your postcards are ready, USPS will deliver your message to every address in the selected postal route.

This removes the need to upload a mailing list or include a postage permit. At UPrinting, we take care of every customization detail, from sizes that fit EDDM® postcard requirements to cardstock that endures multiple handling.

Download any of the templates available to ensure the file follows all the necessary printing guidelines. The sample design below shows how your artwork will appear with the guidelines considered:
 

  • A safe zone should not include any important details, text, or images beyond its green dotted area. This prevents essential information from being cut in the final print.
  • The trim line determines where the final design will be cut. Only your background color should be seen here, but cannot include anything in the safe zone.
  • Bleed should include the background of your artwork, up until the edge of this area. This is crucial for designs that extend up to the edge of your final size.
