FAQ: What Products Make Up the Shared Mail Package?


Our shared mail products fall into three categories based on the positioning of the piece within our shared mail package: D-Cards, Inserts, and Wraps. We offer one-stop shopping and turnkey pricing for the graphic design, printing, and distribution of your mailing piece. With a variety of sizes and paper stocks to choose from, you decide what best suits your needs and your budget.

D-Cards
The d-card (Detached Address Card) is a free-standing direct mail piece at a shared mail price! This card delivers separately in the mailbox along with the TMM Mail Package. TMM’s address label is printed on one side, while the other side is available for your message. We also offer an enhanced 2-sided option. D-Cards must be reserved in advance as there is only one d-card per zip code, per in-home date.

Our turnkey D-Card products are available in 3 sizes:

Traditional D-Card: 4.375″ x 8.5″

  • Printed on 9pt HI Bulk for a strong matte finish
  • Full color on one side only (back side is for address label)

Single- or Double-Sided Gloss D-Cards: 5″ x 8.5″

  • Printed on 9pt C2S for a gloss finish
  • Single Sided offers full color on one side only
  • Double Sided offers full color on one side and half of the second side

Inserts
An insert refers to any piece that is inside the mail package. We offer several turnkey insert products to fit your advertising needs and budget.

Multi-Page
Multi-page flyers provide you with the most advertising space and visibility for your message. Available in several paper stock and finish combinations, our standard folded flyer also offers the flexibility of being used as an insert or in the wrap position.

11” x 17” Folded Flyer

  • Printed on 50#, 60# Offset paper for a matte finish or 50#-60# coated paper for a glossy finish
  • Folded with a ¼” lip to become a 4-page flyer
  • Available as an insert in our mail package or as the wrap (based on availability)

Other sizes and paper stock are available to be mailed as part of our shared mail program and will be quoted on a case by case basis.  You can also opt to design and print your own piece and provide it to us for distribution (Request a copy of our Shared Mail Specifications Guide for basic requirements).

Wraps
The wrap is the outside flyer that holds our mail package together. The wrap position must be reserved in advance as there is only one wrap per zip code, per in-home date. All flyers mailing in the wrap position are required to include an address block. Any wrap that is not being printed by TMM must have the size and placement of this block approved before printing.  Our standard turnkey wrap product is the 11” x 17” Folded Flyer referenced above.
