These direct mail materials can include postcards, letters, brochures, sell sheets, and complete direct mail packages.
According to Russ Graunke, CEO of Allegro, “We have been helping our clients develop results-driven direct marketing programs for 18 years. It was just a natural extension of these services to provide a company’s sales staff with an on-demand system to create custom, highly relevant direct mail.”
