Dimensional mailing products: the why and how

You might ask yourself: why choose dimensional mailing products? Dimensional mailing products impact performance. Perhaps you’ve already experienced how hard it is to get the interest for your mailing that you want. While other companies are still sending out flat mailings and e-mails, you can easily pass gatekeepers by sending dimensional direct mail.

Direct mailers with a dimensional format ensure a much higher attention value than regular postal items. It starts with the moment they open up the envelope: the card jumps out and your message literally comes in with a ‘bang’. Now you’ve already reached more than you probably would have had with a simple letter: the recipient opened up the envelope. The surprise effect makes the recipient curious and therefore he will take a closer look at the dimensional product.

Apart from these benefits, there are more ways to make your mailer a winner. In this blog, we will give you three tips for creating a successful dimensional mail campaign.

Be consistent

It is very important that your dimensional mailing product has a design that is consistent with your brand image. Use the same colour palette, layout and wording on a 3D mailer as on your traditional mail pieces. By choosing an additional full colour printed envelope for your dimensional mail piece you have even more space to show off your corporate branding. This ensures almost instant recognition with the recipient who is then more likely to open your dimensional mailer.

Make sure they share your dimensional mailing products

By opting for a remarkable dimensional mailing product you are aiming for a high attention value. Recipients are surprised when a flat mailer turns out to be a 3D mailing piece. Combined with creative communication and great visual support the mailing will impress the receivers. Your dimensional mailing campaign will be extra successful when the recipients show off the mailing to their colleagues or even friends, so add an element of which you are sure that it will catch the eye of the receivers!

A 3D mailer is also a lot more likely to stay in sight of the receiver. For example, include a calendar in the design or choose for a 3D mailer with pen holes. The mailer will not be thrown away but used instead.
