Lettermail GTA Delivery & Beyond: Direct Mailing Solutions are All About Timing!

Happy Friday to all readers and mailers out there!

In celebration of sleeping in tomorrow, let’s start thinking like a weekender by asking ourselves:

When will it get delivered?

Sadly, we’re not talking about Friday night pizza–you’re on your own for that. But like all delicious plans, direct mailing solutions are all about timing. Perhaps your company has an upcoming event or promotion with critical start-end dates (for example, an Easter mailer that reaches mailboxes specifically on Good Friday). Estimating the transportation time of direct mail delivery can be tricky, especially when trying to factor in Canada Post processing and delivery to rural routes. Luckily, Troi Mailing Services has the industry insights to predict when your advertising mail will hit homes.

For Canadian Lettermail deliveries, Canada Post’s 2016 service update advises:

Major Urban Centres:
2 days local / 3 days within province / 4 days national

Non-Major Urban Centres:

2 days local / 3 days within province / 4 days national

Northern Regions & Remote Centres:

2 days local / up to 6 days within province / up to 8 days national

Our direct marketing planners often add an extra day of mail processing to the equation when fulfilling larger mailings (usually pertaining to Canada Post’s Personalized Mail stream). Please call our mail house at 1-866-486-0423 to tell us about your piece, and when you need it to be in mailboxes!

To bring this misleading narrative back to pizza, maybe it’s time for you to check out this week’s food mailers. After all, some of the most enticing direct mail offers are sitting right in your coupon drawer. Just remember to check the expiry date!
