While most companies have started to shy away from direct mail campaigns, we continue to use mail as a means for us to reach our customers. It still continues to be very effective at driving traffic into our shop, and until we see a change, we will be continuing our mail out each year.
This year we found that our regular supplier of mailing labels went out of business, so we needed to find another supplier. Since we are based in Canada, we needed a company that would be able to provide us with labels shipped to Canada at a reasonable price. It was going to be our first time shipping them from south of the border, so we wanted to make sure we had a good first experience.
After checking out a number of companies, we decided to work with USLabel.net. They carried Avery compatible labels that would work with our labeling software at a fraction of the price that any other retailer up here in Canada offered.
We ordered an initial shipment to see how quickly everything would show up, and I am happy to report that it was there within just a few days. The quality of the labels was comparable to Avery labels. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.
Now, all we have to do is get our mail out put together and we can mail everything out early next week.
