    Why some business does not progress well with EDDM?

    Even when getting a large sum of pieces, EDDM retail costs $0.16 each piece and these flats should not weigh more than 3.3 oz. Compared to a standard size letter mail, a saving of 7 cents each can be achieves and 3 cents savings for first class postage over 4×6 postcard sizes.
