Here are the mailing services we provide:
Data Processing and List Management
By using professional mailing and list management software, we are capable of processing large files and keeping your mailing lists and marketing databases clean and updated. We maintain a library of conversion software that performs such tasks as gender coding, name parsing, custom selection processing, geocoding, radius selection and more. Our programming staff is capable of developing specialized workflow and list hygiene techniques, providing a truly customized solution.
NCOA List Processing
Postal regulations keep moving toward automation and delivering the mail to the right place the first time. If you want to get discounts for your class of mail, you will need to comply with the 95-day update rule. Using NCOA processing services will get you there and the cost-benefit is clear even at low volumes. It also provides you with more control over your list. You can determine who has moved out of a geographic area and would not be likely to respond to your solicitation or who has moved and left no forwarding address. Keeping return mail down to a minimum is a big step in reducing mailing costs.
Merge/Purge and Custom Duplicate Elimination
Duplicated mail is a sure way to run up your mailing costs and turn off potential customers. From standard household dupe elimination to special retention rules, we can show you how to avoid this scenario and save money in both print production and postage.
Depending on the type of your mailing, a properly prepared and personally addressed envelope will dramatically improve the chance it will be opened.
Pressure Seal Solutions
When used in the right situation, pressure seal mail pieces can deliver a lot at a low cost. From tax form printing to checks and notifications, we have a solution that will work for you. A secure, tamper-proof piece can carry confidential information right to the recipient at a lower cost than standard window envelopes.
Data Entry/Data Capture of List Information
Getting your mailing list developed or adding to it often involves acquiring some type of hard-copy document and converting it to a digital format. Reward program enrollments, buck slips and other data collection forms can be a valuable source of leads and potential new business. We offer data entry service for small- to large-scale projects and guarantee high accuracy rates.
Personalized laser printed letters can go a long way to connecting with current or potential customers. Putting a high-quality document in front of anyone will increase the chances of you being recognized and standing out among the competition. Our design specialists will provide advice on best practices and help get your message across.
Survey Printing and Mailing
Planning a survey or market study mailing takes planning. You want to reach the target, get them to fill out the survey accurately and then return it quickly. We have managed many mail survey projects and can assist you in planning and executing yours.
Postal Rates/Service Guidance
We work with the local Chicago, Illinois support team as well as the NCSC in Memphis, Tennessee to get the right information and stay ahead of a rapidly changing postal service. Making sure the best mailing rate is achieved or taking advantage of business reply mail program discounts will make a difference in your mailing costs.
Hand Assembly/Piece Insertion
For jobs that require piece matching or custom stuffing that cannot be automated, we offer hand assembly. Mailing and lettershop outsourcing can be a good solution for special marketing and targeted direct mail, allowing you to be creative in your approach.
