SELF-MAILERS

Self-mailers are the perfect platform for any advertiser that has a lot to communicate. With ample amounts of printable advertising space, self-mailers are an amazing way to reach your target audience and convey your message through the print medium!

 

OVERSIZE POSTCARDS

Oversize postcards are an effective, cost efficient way to relay your message to your target market. They handle effortlessly and are inexpensive to mail. Oversize postcards allow you to say more, provide more, and offer a substantial return in your investment.

 

POSTCARDS

4X6 postcards are a prime example of an innovative and cost efficient way for you to reach out to your potential clientele. They offer endless possibilities and provide expected results, all at a discounted rate.

 

SATURATION MAILING

A saturation mailing is a targeted offer to the true customer base of a business. With saturation mailing you can target entire neighborhoods, counties, and states. It is inexpensive both in preparation and postage, and you can reach customers very quickly. You save 4-5 cents on standard class postage and you receive a free mailing list.

Coding accuracy support system (CASS) Processing

The Thomas Group uses CASS certified software approved by the USPS. We repair recognizable addresses that are incorrect, and standardize them to meet these USPS specifications. Then we append proper ZIP+4 and carrier routes codes, plus all other required endorsements. Finally, we presort your list – arranging all the addresses in a sequence with USPS regulations. And we produce the documentation needed to obtain your discounts and ensure deliverability.

Merge / Purge

The Thomas Group combines (merges) two or more lists and removes (purges) the names and addresses that appear more than once. This gives you a clean list, so you don’t waste money mailing to duplicate records.

National Change of Address (NCOA) Processing

Studies show as many as 20 percent of the United States population change addresses each year! So you will want to consider using NCOA on your in-house mailing list every year. NCOA uses data updated by the U.S. Postal Service every week to identify individuals, families, and businesses that change their address. The Thomas Group will incorporate the new information to your in-house mailing list to keep it current and save you the cost of mailing to inaccurate addresses.
