Many of the tools are designed for the do-it-yourself mailer that needs an affordable and easy solution.
“Normally, direct mail marketers might have to engage two or three vendors in order to execute a campaign. They may have to talk to the list broker, the designers, the printing house, the mail specialist etc. Now, using DirectMailTools.com, they can have one point of contact throughout the entire process.” said Kurt Johnson, CEO of Hammer Direct LLC. the parent company of DirectMailTools.com, PostcardBuilder.com and Printz.com.
“We’ve been in the online print and design business for years and know what our customers want and need. DirectMailTools.com was a natural evolution for us.
