I do a min. of 2000 cards a month. I design them myself, send them to a printer, usually GotPrint.com because you will be hard pressed to find a better price. I use EDDM (Every Door Direct Mail) from the USPS. You have to send to every home in a postal route but it's 17.5 cents a piece to get you word out there. When I target my message I use IMAPP tax records, after having a few thousand cards printed, (This way I can have them for a few months) then I upload the addresses into Quantum Digital and mail as few as 20 homes. But don't mail to homes, mail to owners. This way in case the home is a rental you want the owner to get the message. If you want to get to renters target a complex and mail to those addresses.

I use EDDM (Every Day Direct Mail) through the US Postal Service for farming postcards. My graphic designer creates and orders them and I send them from the postoffice to all the houses in my farm area which is 2 postal routes. It's pretty cost effective. I have used Vista Print, too, for Just Sold, etc.

Quantum Digital is fantastic - different sizes, mail to EDDM, your farm, your sphere or per map and the quality is unmatched!  I've tried many of them and when you have one sent to your home with each mailing, you can evaluate the quality.  Here's the website:  https://quantumdigital.com  Good luck!
