The Connection Carolina Mailer

For $300 you receive a professionally designed 4" x 4" advertisement placed on a huge 12" x 9" postcard. This offer is limited to 11 exclusive advertisers per issue (which we refer to as single zip code zones).


The finished postcards are delivered directly by the USPS as it's own delivered mail piece. In other words, these are NOT inserted into "junk mail" or other postal pieces. In fact, as carriers sort their mail routes for the day, many will take our Connection Carolina postcard (since it is the largest size permitted as a "flat") and wrap the entire mailbox's contents for that day making our postcard the most visible mail piece that day!


We can also do single advertiser mailers which means that you are the ONLY person on the card. We are happy to give you a free consultation to discuss the area you want to hit and what you want your message to be. 100% no obligation for a free quote!
