Types of direct mail

Neighbourhood mail

What it is

Send direct mail to targeted neighbourhoods. No need for a mailing list. Target the right residents for each communication based on geography, demographics or business characteristics.

What it can do

Neighbourhood mail can help drive traffic to your website, instead of your call centre. It's also an effective tool to create awareness of community events, city projects and notifications.
