Leverage Personalized Mail Through Troi

As a one-to-one direct mail solution, Personalized Mail (formerly known as Addressed Admail) is addressed to an individual. Personalization elicits a sense of urgency, closeness and trust, which optimizes visual interest and open rates. With a minimum quantity of 100 pieces for Machineable Mail and 1,000 pieces for Special Handling mail projects, Personalized Mail (formerly known as Addressed Admail) is ideal for tailored messaging and call-to-actions in various forms:

  • Advertising a product, event, program or service
  • Acquiring contributions and donations
  • Reporting on financial progress (with promotional content included)
  • Promoting loyalty cards and programs

Comprising a variety of direct mail products and sizes (envelopes, boxes, polybags, selfmailers, etc.), Personalized Mail (formerly known as Addressed Admail) generally refers to promotional mail with a sales oriented call-to-action. This mailing stream is different from Canada Post’s Lettermail category for informational mail. If you are unsure whether your mail piece qualifies as “promotional”, Troi’s team can help expedite a verdict from Canada Post. The bulk discounts that Personalized Mail (formerly known as Addressed Admail) offers is a cost-efficient alternative to Lettermail, as shown by the postage rates below.

Troi Mailing Services can help tidy and process your mailing list to postal requirements, or help you rent or purchase data from certified list providers. Both consumer and business list rentals are available through Canada Post’s Data Targeting Team.

When I was searching for a company to handle my mailers, Troi was the first company that came up. I contacted them and I’m glad that I did! I have worked with the Troi Mailing & Timeline Printing team (Peter and Ken) for a couple of years now.

You and your team made it very easy for us and the reason that we kept coming back is because of the service, speed of delivery and the fact that you answer the phone!! Believe me it makes the biggest difference to be able to call and get a quick response.
