|America Direct Services|
As mailing professionals we understand how important each customers mailing is to the success of their organization.
We know that each mailing represents a significant amount of capital and that our customers are looking for the
maximum amount of return on investment. Each mailing also represents trust. We never forget that our customer has
entrusted us with the responsibility of representing them to their customers or potential customers.
There are no second chances to get it right, each mailing must be processed correctly and on time.
Since 1996 America Direct has been accepting that responsibility and our company has grown because we remember
these simple truths.
America Direct has a complete range of mail processing services. Our mail room equipment offers high speed
production that not only keeps our prices competitive but also allows us to offer quick turnaround time.
We have quality assurance checkpoints throughout the entire production process to ensure that each job is
being processed according to specifications.
America Direct can handle all of your design needs, from concept to layout. Whether you are a utility
company needing an updated format or a first time mailer, we can help you achieve the look you want.
If you have already designed your mail piece we encourage you to let us review it before printing to
ensure that all United States Postal requirements are met, thus avoiding costly postage surcharges.
Our Mailcrafters and Bell & Howell letter inserting machines can accommodate envelopes taking up to
eight inserts. We can automatically insert into standard size envelopes as well as 90 X 120 provided
the flap is on the 120 side. In-line ink jetting and metering is also available.
Our Baum folders are designed for high volume and provide precise folds. We can fold single sheets
up to 230 X 360 with a wide range of folding options including Double Right Angle folds.
Our in-line Kirk-Rudy and MCS Tabbers can affix either one or two tabs as required to achieve certain
Postal automation discounts. In addition to tabs these lines can affix scratch-off tabs for applications
such as covering winning numbers as well as affixing live Postage stamps for a personal touch.
We also offer in-line hot glue in lieu of tabs.
Ink Jet Addressing
We use MCS Ink Jet systems that allow for high production speeds while maintaining crisp print
quality needed to pass USPS bar code requirements. The RSI drying system allows us to print on a
wide variety of coated paper stock at high speeds without sacrificing print quality.
For applications requiring the use of paper or Cheshire labels we use Kirk-Rudy addressing machines.
The machines are designed to accept either 4 or 5 across list formats as well as PSL list.
America Direct has the ability to insert into Newspaper size publications using our Kansa Inserting
Machine. This machine can also produce "Marriage Mail" packages with up to eight inserts.
The Mailing List is an integral part of any successful mailing campaign. The best designed mail
piece will prove unsuccessful if the correct recipients are not identified and reached. America
Direct has the resources to give you access to a database custom tailored for maximum response.
Simply put, America Direct will zero in on prospects most likely to buy your product or service.

While Ameica Direct does not offer in-house printing we do maintain a strong relationship with
numerous printing companies. Printing companies typically specialize in certain products depending
on capabilities and equipment. Whether you need a thousand post cards printed or a hundred thousand
magazines, America Direct can put you in contact with the printer most suited to fill your needs.
Many of our customers choose to let America Direct handle all aspects of the print run, from design
to booking press time and press proofing. Because of the volume of print that we handle and the
relationships we have developed over the years, we can often lower our customers printing cost.
Another benefit in letting America Direct act as your print agent is that you can be assured that the
end product will be within all USPS specifications avoiding costly Postage surcharges.
