Appeal to Your Donors with the Right Direct Mail Products

Direct mail for nonprofits comes in many shapes and sizes. Which format to use for your direct mail fundraising strategies depends on what you want to say, the type of donation, and the actions that need to be taken.

Envelope Mailers

The most popular nonprofit direct mail format is the envelope mailer because It allows for multiple letters, stories, donation slips, and return envelopes to be included in one clean, compact package. They also provide privacy for confidential messages, opportunities for personalization, and the ability to create a custom envelope so your letter stands out and gets opened.

Self Mailers

Self-mailers are popular with nonprofits because they offer multiple full color panels to tell your story but fold down into a compact letter-sized piece. Any message or materials sealed inside are kept secure until opened. With their simple format and eye-catching layout, self-mailers help your message command attention in the mailbox.
