No long at all. Much faster than a Direct Mail Program. Usually we only need two weeks from the time we receive your final art to delivery start.

We can print and delivery a large door hanger for less than the cost of a 1st class stamp! A solo front-door marketing campaign typically can run anywhere from 40% to 60% cheaper than a comparable solo direct mail campaign. Of course, campaigns can vary by market, and quantity of pieces being delivered.
