3D Direct Mail, No Silly Glasses Required

No matter what you call it—dimensional mail, tactile mail, or (our preference) 3D direct mail—packages that feature height, breadth, and depth consistently outperform old-fashioned “flat” mailers.

At Tactive, we can customize a winning 3D direct mail campaign for your needs. We’ll even assemble and ship it so you can focus on the fun stuff—namely, following up on leads.

Confession: We’re huge 3D direct mail nerds. We geek out over every detail, from box types to typefaces to color choices. This makes us pretty lame party guests. But it makes us great direct mail partners. See for yourself.

Why 3D Direct Mail Marketing?

There’s a time and place for email marketing and traditional mailers. But when the stakes are highest, those options often fall short. Consider this: 66% of customers say it takes more for a company to impress them than ever before. While direct mail marketing earns a 37% higher response rate than email, a well designed 3D mail campaign is even more powerful. When you really need to “wow” a prospect, 3D direct mail is a no-brainer.

3D Direct Mail for Every Occasion

While 3D direct mail is most often used for sales campaigns, it can also be a powerful way to create connections in a disconnected world. Want to engage employees working from home? A thoughtful 3D mailer can boost morale. Need to generate real-life excitement for a virtual event? Put something unforgettable in prospective attendees’ hands. Whenever you need to surprise and delight your audience, 3D direct mail delivers.

Personalize Everything (Every. Single. Thing.)

What do prospects love even more than receiving an amazing 3D mailer? Receiving one designed just for them. At Tactive, we personalize every aspect of our mailers: the box, the recipient letter, and even certain apparel and promotional items. Why make all the effort? Because when making a lasting impression is the name of the game, using the client’s name as frequently as possible is a winning strategy.

Our 3 D’s: Dedicated. Dynamic. Driven.

Tactive isn’t the only vendor who can help you with direct mail. But we’re likely the only one who will be as dedicated to your campaign’s success as you are. This is why several national and global companies trust us with their 3D direct mail marketing needs: because we have the experience, expertise, and can-do attitude it takes to meet—and exceed—their critical marketing goals.
