A mail service specializes in preparing, addressing and sending large quantities of mail. A good mailing service can help your business run more efficiently. When choosing a mailing service, find out if the company not only specializes in sending direct marketing mailers, but can also handle customer billings and general sorting of incoming mail.
Mailing service costs vary depending on where you live and the scope of services. Many mailing companies offer a package of services, such as printing, folding, addressing and mailing direct-marketing pieces, and will charge according to volume and level of automation. For example, it costs about $1,800 to have 5,000 postcards printed, sorted, addressed and mailed, while the price for a single letter to be printed, addressed and mailed can average about $8.
