Join Trish Witkowski for an in-depth discussion in this video Notes, stamps, and addressing techniques, part of Learning Direct Mail Strategy.
…Mail that feels personal has a far greater chance of getting opened, and there are…proven methods that are commonly used to…give the feel of personalization in direct mail.…Some methods are obvious, and some are astonishingly subtle.…There are three ways to apply postage to a…mail piece, a stamp, a meter stamp, and an indicia.…Meter stamps and indicias are very efficient, but they…can be a telltale sign of a mail campaign.…On the other hand, sending a mail piece as…a USPS or US postal service first class letter…with the real stamp, feels more personal to the recipient.…
Tests have proven that a very slight skew in the stamp…is even better, because it feels like it was placed by hand.…Unusual and custom stamps are real attention gathers.…A simple replacement of your standard business stamp to a…limited edition stamp is eye-catching and shows attention to detail.…There are also companies offering USPS approved custom postage…called PC postage, where you can import your own images and designs and…the postage bears a special bar code to the right of the image area.…
