As you can imagine, direct mail costs can vary by type of piece printed, quantity, and delivery method. But typical costs for a postcard or letter range from about $1 to $3 per piece. As you budget, consider the results you can expect and what value investing in a mail campaign might bring to your enrollment success.
What results you can expect:
