Personalization Is Key To Effective Marketing Documents

Doug Mayer - Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Study Shows Personalization Exceeds Other Factors In Improving Direct Mail Response Rates

In 2004 there was study made by InfoTrends/CAP Ventures entitled The Impact of Color in Graphic Design.  Though the basis of this study was to show how important color is in increasing the response rates of direct mail campaigns, it actually shows how important personalization is.  Personalization of the direct mailer was the most important factor in driving up response rates.

Some of the results of the study are as follows:

Color Scheme


Response Rate

Black & White



Black & White



Full Color



Full Color

Yes (Name Only)


Full Color

Yes (Deep Personalization)


Clearly, the direct mail campaigns with the deep personalization had a significantly higher response rate than any other campaign.  Adding color to the mailer generally increased the response rate by only 0.5%.  Adding personalization, however, increased the response rate by 4.5% to 5.5%.   That's huge!  When you consider that the average direct mail campaign only has a 2-4% response rate, a response rate of 6.5% is most significant.

Personalized mailing pieces with merged mailing records

Doug Mayer - Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Built into our system is the ability for a customer to personalize a product and merge all the mailing addresses that you want the piece to be delivered to.  The printer then can offline CASS certify the mailing list and then version the product using the customized template.

To do this the delivery type of the product needs to be set to "Postal".  Call/email us and we'll be glad to show you how you can implement this great feature.
