“A direct mail designer is in charge of the shop window display. If it’s done correctly, people will come in through the door.”-- Patrick Fultz, president of DM Creative Group and John Caples International Awards

“Design & Formats for Boosting Direct Mail Response” is dedicated to helping you get people in the door… or prospects into your mail piece. No matter how great your data, your campaign strategy or even your copywriting, if the design doesn’t work, then your latest mailing will flop.

We’ve gone to many renowned designers and copywriters and asked them to unveil the design best practices so that doesn’t happen. Along with top-notch design advice (for example, you’ll be blown away by Carol Worthington-Levy’s article on color and typography), you’ll also learn how to maximize the potential of all the different formats — envelopes, postcards, magalogs, self-mailers and more — available today.

You’ll even find out how to leverage certain components (like the order card, involvement devices, brochures, etc.) within the mail piece to increase response. At the end of the day, and this report, that’s the goal: to help you boost your direct mail response. We guarantee you that incorporating these proven design techniques will do exactly that.
