Get your printed piece to your customers by using Ram's Mailing services. We provide Marketing Mail (aka Standard or Bulk Mail,) First Class as well as Every Door Direct Mail® (EDDM®) services to all or our clients. Be sure to talk with your salesperson to include pricing on your next mail quote.
What is Marketing Mail?
Marketing Mail (Formerly called Standard or Bulk Mail) is a more economical method of mailing but it usually takes longer to arrive. We see nationwide average delivery times of one- to two-weeks and local averages of three- to ten-days. On rare occasions we also see next day delivery of Marketing Mail. Think of Marketing Mail as a low-cost alternative with a difficult-to-predict but longer delivery time. Marketing postage rates may not be used for bills, invoices or other mailings which contain unique personal information. It is used instead for advertising material. With Marketing mail, you do not automatically receive the undeliverable pieces, so it isn’t a good choice for keeping your mailing list up-to-date, although you may ask us to include an endorsement like “Return Services Requested” and, for a fee, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) will return this mail too.
What is First Class Mail?
First Class mail enjoys a much faster delivery time in most cases but is more expensive than Marketing Mail. Nationwide delivery times for First Class average one- to five-days. One other difference between First Class and Standard mail, with First Class, the undeliverable mail (wrong address, for example) is returned to the sender for free.
What is Every Door Direct Mail® (EDDM®)
Every Door Direct Mail® (EDDM®) is a U.S. Postal Service® that allows businesses and individuals to direct mailing pieces to specific neighborhoods and locations as cost-efficiently as possible. This USPS feature saves you money by not requiring a mailing list and the expense of addressing each individual piece. Ask your salesperson for more information regarding and EDDM mailing.
