In terms of marketing to the people most interested in what you offer, it doesn’t get easier or more affordable than Every Door Direct Mail® postcards. In fact, many business owners don’t realize just how cheap EDDM postcards can be as a marketing investment: the postage rate for an EDDM postcard is often about half the price of sending a standard first-class postcard.
Although saving on postage is a huge advantage, the EDDM postcard shines when it comes to distribution. Unlike your standard postcard, EDDM mailer postcards have the distribution already built in! That means you won’t have to build or buy any kind of mailing list in order to spread the word—you can work directly with USPS to mail your postcards to any ZIP code in the country. You can even use census data to target your mailers to households within a certain age, size, or income bracket. This unlocks so many marketing opportunities for new and existing businesses!
EDDM postcards are by far one of the most easiest & cost-effective ways to reach your target audience—whether that means customers down the block or residents all across the country.
Staying in line with the simplicity of EDDM postcards, MyCreativeShop has made the design process a breeze for you! All you have to do is choose a template, edit it, order prints, and then drop them at your local post office. Our EDDM postcard templates are professionally designed and easy to customize so you won’t have to hire a graphic designer.

What EDDM Postcard Sizes Do We Offer?
USPS has very specific requirements when it comes to EDDM sizing, but you won’t have to worry about that! We offer pre-approved EDDM postcard sizes:
- 6.5" x 9"
- 6" x 11"
These sizes are fully EDDM-compliant according to USPS regulations and will print with the required indicia markings as shown on every template. If you want to take advantage of the Every Door Direct Mail® program, these are the sizes you will need!
We also offer non-EDDM postcard templates if you plan to handle the distribution yourself; these come in 8.5.” x 5.5” and 4.25” x 6” sizes. Check out our standard postcard templates catalog to explore the options for yourself.

The cost of EDDM varies based on how many mailers you are planning to send. If you’ll be sending fewer than 5000 pieces, you qualify for an EDDM Retail Account, and your only shipping expense will be the EDDM postage rate. If you have more than 5000 pieces to send out, you’ll need to upgrade to an EDDM BMEU Account and purchase a separate mailing permit in addition to paying the EDDM postage rate for each mailer. Postage rates change frequently - get the most up-to-date rates straight from the USPS.
All EDDM mailers are considered a “flat.” They must be rectangular, no more than 15″ long x 12″ high x.75″ thick, with a minimum of at least one of the following: length of greater than 10.5″, height of 6.125″, or thickness of .25″. In addition, they cannot exceed a weight of 3.3oz. Check out our blog post A Complete Guide to Understanding EDDM for more about EDDM or visit the USPS Quick Reference Guide to get all the current details.
Once you’ve completed your EDDM postcard design, click the “Print/Download” button or head straight to our EDDM Printing page. Select your postcard size, quantity, and paper type, then choose whether you’d like us to bundle your postcards or not, enter your delivery info, and hit print. We’ll deliver a fantastic set of satisfaction-guaranteed EDDM postcards bundled according to USPS specs or not bundled. Alternately, you can always choose to download a high-quality PDF to print and bundle anywhere you like.
In order to be accepted by the USPS for mailing, your EDDM postcards must be bundled in stacks of 50 or 100. Each stack cannot exceed 6 inches in height, and bundles should be consistent. Consistent bundling means that you use only groups of 50 or 100, not a mix of the two. For example, if you have 588 postcards, you could put together 11 bundles of 50 and one bundle of 38 or five bundles of 100 and one bundle of 88.
If you place your print order with us, we can bundle your postcards in groups of 100 - one less thing to think about!
