How to Use Your EDDM Postcards


Our Breakthrough Broker EDDM postcards are ready to use as Every Door Direct Mailpieces.

  1. Create a USPS Account - Set up your USPS EDDM Account to get started at http://www.usps.com. If you wish to skip account creation, you may bring your cards to a local USPS Post Office to speak with an EDDM Specialist. Please note: Our cards are made to use as EDDM Retail® pieces and allow up to 5,000 mailpieces per day per ZIP code. If your needs are larger, you will need to use an EDDM Business Account and may need to purchase a separate postage permit. Our cards will not work with EDDM Business as they require a different indicia.
  2. Select Your Routes - Choose the carrier routes on the EDDM Mapping tool where you think your customers live. Use the USPS EDDM Mapping Tool here: https://eddm.usps.com/eddm/customer/routeSearch.action
  3. Order Your Breakthrough Broker EDDM Postcards - After finding your route and getting an estimate of the quantity of postcards you will need, order your EDDM Postcards from BB. Postcards must be packaged in quantities of 50-100. Our postcards can be ordered here: [Link to be attached when available]
  4. Choose Your Drop Off Date - You can pay for your mailing online or at the Post Office™ where you drop it off. Select your drop-off date based on how many deliveries you want and where you plan to send them.
  5. Prepare Mailing Bundles - Bundle your mailing in stacks of 50-100 mailpieces. Bundles may not be higher than 6 inches.
  6. Fill Out Processing Forms - Facing slips and EDDM forms tell the Postal Service™ how to process and deliver your order. Attach a facing slip to the top of every bundle. If a customer wants to be removed from your mailings, include the customer's address in the "Do Not Deliver Address" column on the facing slip. Write the number of pieces in the bundle on the facing slip. You can access a copy of the facing slip here: https://www.usps.com/business/pdf/eddm-retail-facing-slip.pdf
  7. Pay for Postage - Pay with a free USPS.com® account online or pay at the Post Office™. Charges are based on the type of account you have and the size of your mailing. For current postage pricing, please click here: https://www.usps.com/business/every-door-direct-mail.htm#postage
