Political mailings are usually postcards. However, for a more personalized connection, a match mailing, when the envelope name and address match the name on the letter, have a higher response rate than postcards. The choice is yours depending on budget, speed, and your campaign goals.
Personalized (Variable Data) letter mailings are a more personal, and private, way of communicating with potential Clients.
We print the letters for you, such as Dear John, and match it to the envelope. You can also use a generic letter, no name or address on it, and we will fold it and insert it into an envelope for you.
Printed pieces that require folding and are mailed without an envelope are called self-mailers.
