  • Directional Copy – The mailpiece must contain prominently displayed text near the mobile print technology or an image that provides directions regarding how to scan the print technology with specific information about the landing page.

Give your offer a boost with a large envelope size. A larger direct mail envelope such as a 6×9 or a 9×12 can command attention with its size alone, and leaves plenty of real estate for you to include your choice of mobile print technology and corresponding directional copy. 

Or, make your directional copy shine with a spot embossed envelope with foil – a spot of brilliant, lustrous foil can help attract attention to your text.
