- Is your product or service promotional, or does it tend to be more serious and personal? A #10 envelope tends to look more business-like. Self-mailers tend to be more promotional. However, this logic doesn’t hold 100% of the time.
- Is the objective of your mailing acquisition or retention? You should be talking to your current customers differently than those prospects you’re trying to acquire.
