Direct mail printing is a thriving business that not too many people think about. When people think of promotions or advertising campaigns for their businesses and products, what comes to mind are the more common forms of advertising such as print ads and video commercials?
The widespread use of the internet has even brought forward a means of advertising through websites with the use of pop-ups and banner ads.
However, what a lot of consumers take for granted is actually one of the most successful forms of advertising.
These are the direct mail prints that are found in the mailboxes or doorsteps every day. There are millions of these print-outs being sent every day, and even if most people just disregard these items, there are even more of those who seriously take the time to read them and even go out to try what they are offering.

The effect of direct mail can be seen the most in a culture that a minority of the population has developed. This culture, or hobby as some may call it, is known as couponing and has been taken to the extremes by those who have seen its wonder.
Couponing is the act in which people collect specially marked coupons that offer discounts or promotions. These coupons are found in the traditional print ads, mostly through the newspapers or even the catalogs or brochures that some businesses send directly to their customers.
The hype and popularity of couponing have made it clear to businesses that with the right print ad, they can bring many people to their stores.
