Commercial Printing and Direct Mail
We offer a full line of commercial printing and direct mail services, including consulting, professional copywriting and graphic design, printing, and direct mail. You can utilize any of the distribution programs described above, or we can mail to your customer list or other targeted demographics or geographies. And well simplify your program by handling it every step of the way. Plus, when you let us handle your printing and direct mail needs, your printing costs and mailing (except postage) apply towards your newspaper revenue contract, which can lower the cost of your ROP advertising.

Doorstep Impact Programs
For special promotions, consider high visibility options such as polybags
or elastic bag tags. Polybags are the plastic bags covering the newspaper,
providing great billboard-style advertising. These white bags can be
printed with your message in a variety of colors, and you can even include
promotional samples. Elastic band tags feature a banded card that is
wrapped around the newspaper. For more details, contact your Seattle Times account executive or Greg Bodhaine, Direct Marketing Manager, at 206/652-6813 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
