  • 75% of consumers have made a purchase1 as a result of direct mail.
  • Advertisements in the mailbox are effective at driving online purchases – 47% of Canadians visited a company website2 as a result of a marketing piece they received in the mail.
  • Canada Post delivers to every mailbox in Canada – put your message directly into your customers’ hands.
