Why Mail Weekly?

Steady, More Manageable Returns

Cash flow is a common issue for most restaurants. And handling a rush of new business the day your direct mail pieces hit homes can be overwhelming. By spreading out your mailings over several weeks, you can rely on a steadier, more predictable return over time, rather than a rush of new business all at once. This means it’s easier on your wallet and simpler to predict things like food and staffing requirements.

Direct Mail That Works

But don’t take our word for it...

FAQs

How do the payments work?

You pay no money down or up front. No matter what program you choose, your first payment is due the week before delivery of your mailers, when postage is paid. Your weekly payment is the total cost of your direct mail campaign divided by the number of weeks of mailings.

Weekly Mailing = total cost/# of weeks, due weekly over # of weeks

Annual Mailing = total cost/52 weeks, due weekly over 52 weeks

Why are there 50 weeks of mailings but 52 weeks of payments?

There are two weeks of your choosing where mailings will not go out. Our clients usually choose the weeks of July 4th and Christmas when business is slower. We simply spread the payments out over 52 weeks to assist with cash flow.

Are there any additional fees for artwork, taxes, postage, etc.?

No. Our prices are all-inclusive and include professional design work, the mailing list, printing, mailing services, postage, and taxes. There are no hidden fees.

Can I end my annual mailing program prior to its completion?

Yes. The annual program is designed for consistency and results, not to lock you into additional mailings.

We have two pricing structures: our annual weekly mailing pricing, and our a la carte rates. Our annual pricing is a reduced pricing structure you receive when you sign up for an annual program. Our a la carte pricing is what you’d pay if you chose to mail any quantity of pieces not associated with an annual program.

If you choose to end your contract prior to its completion, you will only be charged for the pieces we have printed and mailed for you to date. You will be charged the difference between the annual pricing and the a la carte pricing. This isn’t a penalty; you are simply paying the same rate you would have paid if you had chosen to do those mailings as a la carte rather than annual. After you pay the difference, your contract is canceled with no further obligation.

What if I want to mail everything at one time?

You can always mail a campaign over a one week period. You would just owe one payment for the campaign since there are no additional weeks to spread your payments over.

Can I mail my pieces over more than 10 weeks?

Yes. However, for campaigns that run more than 10 weeks, we ask that you pay the cost of the printing up front. Your weekly payments would then be determined by dividing the remainder of the cost by the number of weeks you’re mailing over.
