Simple Samples

Sending trial-sized product samples (also known as marketing parcels) is one of the most effective ways to engage your potential customers. With Simple Samples®, you can send free samples by mail to either targeted households or every door in a market area—without outer packaging.


  • Flat Rate pricing
  • Less stringent mailpiece preparation requirements
  • No outer packaged needed
  • Volume discounts

How Pricing Works

  • Prices based on the size of the mailed sample: small or large.
  • No minimum quantities required per route.
  • Requires a Detached Marketing Label (DML) or Detached Address Label (DAL).
  • Every Door mailing samples require a simplified address of a "Postal Customer". If DALs are used, there is an additional cost.
