I recently had a customer that was considering enlarging their envelope to qualify for EDDM. The quantity was approx 50,000 pieces covering 6-7 different zip codes going to eastern US states. Click here for EDDM quick reference.
Why I believe this was not the best idea.
1. Additional cost for larger custom envelope
2. Additional printing to add City, State and Zip to each group on each magazine
3. Shipping 50,000 pieces to each local post office.
Leaving the mailing in a #10 envelope but mailing it as a regular saturation mailing was more cost-effective.
Sometimes EDDM is a good idea and sometimes it is not. Ask your local USPS bulk mail representative or a reputable mailing service.
