Processing Tips

Track your Campaign


After a mailing campaign, how do you analyze your results? Do you know who responded and how you found them? People often mail to a variety of lists (prospect, house, etc.), but do not know which list is performing the best. We can complete a response analysis for you and help you understand which lists produce the highest results. We can even match responses to individual mail pieces if each recipient has a unique promotional code.

Please call us to discuss a project at 651-203-8200.

Special Interest...
Floating Post Office™


For over 140 years, the J.W. Westcott has been the only Post Office delivering mail to ships. This boat is part of the U.S. Postal Service® and back in the 1950's, delivered around one million pieces of mail every season. For many sailors who spend months at sea, this is their biggest connection to home. You can find the whole story here.
