Frequently Asked Questions


Why should I use Penny Express Direct Mail Services, and not just send out everything myself?

Answer.

How much will it cost me to send out a mailing?

Answer.

Do I pay now or later?

I don’t have a mailing list. Can you help?

YES! We can provide many different mailing lists. See our About Us page for details.

YES! We are able to include QR codes when designing your mail piece. If you don’t already have one, we can create it for you.
