My service business requires blanket mailing and I love the versatility of EDDM locating and targeting neighborhoods close to me. I also use Vistaprint for majority of my business marketing materials. Will Vistaprints oversized (8.52″ x 5.47″) postcard comply with the EDDM postcard size requirements, and who prints the indicia, Vistaprint or the UPS. I printed Vistaprints standard postcards in past and brought them to UPS and they said they were to small. Very little info on this subject.January 29, 2018 at 6:03 pm #155776
Unfortunately I’m also finding the criteria is a bit vague. on USPS’s website they state that EDDM mail must be at least 6.125″ high, or 11.5″ long or 0.25″ thick.
It sounds like your mailpiece would qualify, since at least one side is longer than 6.125″.
However, it’s possible that all those minimum dimensions must be met in order to qualify. This seems unlikely since most EEDM pieces are single cardstock, not thick letters (0.25″ thick). But it might be good to go into the post office for clarification. I would cut out a piece of cardboard that matches the Vistaprint dimensions, then ask if that would qualify for EDDM.
