Direct Mail Campaigns

Direct mail campaigns, to the community or to church membership, should be facilitated by a third-party vendor. Here are the steps:

  1. Work with Comm designers to create a full-color 6x11 two-sided postcard. Designers have template on their computers.

  2. Edit postcard for spelling and confirm that all URLs and/or email addresses contained in the mailer are working.

  3. Contact Monica at Parris Printing. 615-727-1222

  4. Give Monica your audience need and project timeline. We typically send out direct mail pieces to radius of 3 miles. This radius typically equates to approx 2500 households. Monica will coordinate purchasing a community mailing list, printing the postcard and getting it mailed out.

  5. Ask Monica to include a couple addresses that will allow us to verify that the postcards actually made it out via USPS.  One address can be your own home address.

  6. Parris Printing will send 2 invoices -- one for the postage, one for the printing.
