7 Inspiring Direct Mail Ideas from Conlin’s Instagram

By , March 1, 2018

Direct Mail Newsletter

We love getting mail, and the experience is especially exciting when it's a beautifully designed piece. Our Instagram feed is full of creative direct mail pieces that we've both printed AND received in the mail. Here are seven of our favorites!

1. Pennsylvania Ballet Promo Booklet

This direct mail booklet was sent out to promote the ballet company's 2017-2018 season. Each show was beautiful presented with it's own sub-branding that was incorporated into the page design. Scroll left to see all of the inner pages! The booklet was saddle stitched and had wafer seal closures.

2. Harold Grinspoon Foundation Stationery Set

This colorful packet was sent by the Harold Grinspoon foundation to members of their PJ Library Program. It contained beautiful stationery designed by artist Tom Geismar.

3. Marie Claire Magazine Envelope

We love the rich, vibrant colors of this #directmail envelope that housed the December issue of Marie Claire. The envelope provides additional ad space for this Cover Girl mascara, but it’s also a beautiful way to make the piece stand out in the mail.

4. Conlin's Print Newsletter

Why does your business need a print newsletter? Readers spend more time with printed content vs digital, plus they comprehend more thoroughly and have better memory of what they read. Print is an important part of your content marketing strategy!

5. Maker Quarterly by Mohawk

We are in love with this gorgeous new edition of Maker Quarterly by @mohawkpaper. The black and white geometric cover opens to reveal a pop of bright colors inside!

6. Best of Local Magazine

A strong direct mail piece like a magazine or newsletter could be the best way to let your customers know about your blog launch! We successfully drove traffic to our blog with our Best of Local book.
