Every Door Direct Mail® Facts

What is Every Door Direct Mail®?
Every Door Direct Mail® (EDDM®) is a new program by the USPS® that allows anyone to mail at 17.6¢ per postcard. Not only can you mail postcards, but you can also mail catalogs, brochures, samples, or anything else. You can mail anything as long as it meets "commercial flat" size requirements and does not exceed 3.3oz. in weight.

What size does a commercial flat need to be?
A "commercial flat" needs to be more than 6.125" tall OR longer than 10.5". It may also be up to 1/4 of an inch thick. The smallest mail piece you can send is 6.125"x6.125" and the largest size the mail piece can be is 12"x15." The most popular mailing piece sizes are 6.25"x9.5", 4.25"x 12" and 8.5"x11."

Who can I mail to?
With Every Door Direct Mail® you can mail to all homes and businesses in a mailing route. Each zip code is comprised of many different routes. Each of these routes contain approximately 200-800 homes and businesses.

Don't want to mail to other businesses?
No problem! You can send to residential addresses only for no extra cost.

Where do I find the routes?
The post office has created a new website called Simplified Mailing Process located at http:/eddm.USPS.com. This website allows you to target your mailing by zip code, city, or address and then you can map out the carrier routes that you want to mail to. BAK Direct can also select the carrier routes for you at no additional charge, just let us know the where you want your mailing piece to go and we will take care of the rest!
