EDDM - Every Door Direct Mail For Churches

EDDM®/SIMPLIFIED MAIL CHURCH POSTCARDS

You have all heard of Every Door Direct Mail®  or EDDM®  for short. It is touted as a low-cost alternative for businesses to use direct mail to market to their local communities. What you don’t know and what the Post Office isn’t telling you is,  IF YOU ARE A CHURCH, you are likely spending more money than you need to by doing EDDM® . The program was designed for local business, not churches, and for local businesses it works great. They use the PO’s EDDM®  retail permit, they print 5000 or less, pay for their postage online for about 17 cents each, sort, tag and drop the mail at their local PO.

If your church follows that same structure for 5,000 postcards, you just paid $400 MORE than what you could have paid by converting that EDDM®  mailer into a simplified nonprofit mailer. The US Postal Service already has a special postage program for churches. Most churches think in order to get that rate they need to pay $220 to apply, and then another $220 per year for a nonprofit permit. That scares a lot of churches away. But what most churches don’t know is that a church can work through another organization that already has the permit—and skip the fees. These are called cooperative mailings, and they’re specifically allowed by the USPS (See Publication 417, Section 5.1-2). And Truth Advertising does them every day. Both organizations must be authorized to send mail at the special ratebut only one needs to have the permit. That means your church could be saving money on postage and not have to pay $440 to get a permit.

The basic fact is, if you have a nonprofit permit and you are doing EDDM® , you are actually doing nonprofit simplified mail. If you don’t have a nonprofit permit or have let it expire and you are mailing 1,000 or more postcards, you should let Truth Advertising turn that EDDM®  into a nonprofit simplified mailer. It is essentially the exact same thing and you will SAVE HALF THE COST OF YOUR POSTAGE.
All you need to do is get authorized as a nonprofit entity with the USPS and that is TOTALLY FREE.
