9x12 Postcard Printer w/ EDDM mailing Service

by FormerWageSlave 20 replies
Looking for referrals on a printer who will print my postcards, and bundle and ship them to USPS for my EDDM campaigns. Anyone have someone great they can share?

I am waiting on a quote from GotPrint, but would love to shop it around a bit.

Thanks Warriors!

    Touch base with Bob Ross.
    He's put out some courses on 9x12 and I believe he offers this service too.
    I'm not affiliated with him, but I've heard good things about him.

    Hope this helps!

      You know, I called Bob Ross's shop earlier in the week, no answer. Sent a message via his contact form, no answer. Submitted a quote request via his site, no answer. I can only assume he's out of business, or doesn't need any more.

        Bob Ross...out of business? Not likely.

        I am sure Jake is alive and well and mailing the shit out of some postcards.

        No he's not out of business but as he freely admits, organization isn't one of his strengths. If he doesn't get back to you send another email. If you call make sure it's in his time zone hours EST.

    Here's the thing...if you do find it cheaper...(that's IF)...it won't be by anything worth blowing a booger at.

    You are better off increasing your profits by selling more or doing more cards or more mini campaigns...not by cutting costs...because you right close to as good as its gonna get already.

    May good fortune and success cross your path sir

      OK, good to know. Price is important, but I expected a quote from GotPrint by CoB on Friday and no response from those jokers. Was hoping for better service, and if I can find a decent shop with good customer service, I don't mind paying for that.

      Thank you.

    GotPrint is as inexpensive as I have been able to find.

    Bob Ross for sure...and he's most definitely still in business. Gotprint is pretty cheap too.

    Definitely not out of business. Not sure how I missed your estimate request or call but you can reach me via email itsbobross[at]gmail[dot]com

    gotprint doesn't do turnkey EDDM and they're slow as hell with printing everything (4-5 business day print turnaround alone).

    Send me an email and I'll be more than happy to quote you on whatever you need and it will be cheaper/faster than anywhere else.

      Do you have a website to order from? I would be interested in printing services as well!

        My site is printing4supercheap.com but it's generally best to email/PM me because I have special rates I give people here.

        So this isn't viewed as a self-promotional thread... I encourage anyone who's interested in printing to shop around.

    What size Cards?

    You can get 8.5 x 11 14pt full color double sided cards printed for $600. ( 100# Text is only $400 ) - or - a 6.5" x 15" 14pt full color double sided cards printed for $450.

    Depending on your zipcodes you want to mail from - you will pay anywhere from $250 to $500 per 5,000 to have them EDDM ready and taken to the Post Office.

    More mailouts = less per mailout cost.

    Postage is 17.5¢ per piece . . .

      Tom, who makes 6.5x15" cards? That's a nice size.

          Yep, GotPrint is a great way to go.

          Their prices are excellent and so is their work.

          They also offer complete EDDM service.

            Unfortunately for them, they've completely dropped the ball.

    I have used Bob Ross for printing EDDM, his prices, service, quality and on time delivery are top rate. I highly recommend.
