I had an appointment in Nashville last week and so I thought I would combine it with a visit to my daughter. I had the appointment on Monday and this is what I woke up to on Tuesday. It was beautiful but made it impossible to come back to Knoxville that day. I actually stayed until Thursday and enjoyed time with my family and especially my 10 year old granddaughter, Kate. She completely amazes me with some of the things that she says such as “you still wear makeup?” and “I will not lose to a Grandma” when playing UNO, and “I can’t believe that a Grandma is beating me at UNO”. I told her that old age and treachery will get you every time. LOL We had a great time playing and she beat me several time as she is a good UNO player.
A few day off is fun but I was glad to get back into the office this morning and see all of my work family. We are all trying to avoid the flu but some have already had it. Come on spring we are ready for you.
If you are over the holidays and have started planning your next printing and mailing project, give me a call at 865 584-2265 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Millennials range from ages 20 to 26
Millennials are in a category all their own. They were raised in the digital age and technology is second nature to them but that doesn’t mean that they don’t respond to traditional marketing methods such as direct mail. They are on the go, buying houses, renting apartments, buying cars and they are a force in the workplace.
What does all that have to do with direct mail?
Direct mail has continued to be a great source for marketing with a response rate of 5% as compared to digital marketing with a response rate of less than 1%. I recommend to my customers that they do both direct mail and social media marketing. Millennials are experiencing digital fatigue but they still spend a lot of time online, so use direct mail to guide them to your website or social media page and give them a reason to go to your page, such as an offer of something free such as consulting, free estimates, or a discount. The marketing landscape is always changing but direct mail remains as influential as ever, or more so. When I started in the mailing business in the early 1990’s the response rate was 2-3% and now it is 5%.
At Burns Mailing & Printing, Inc. our consulting is FREE to our customers. I just showed a non-profit how to save over $4000.00 in postage and all it took was sitting down and listening to what they had been doing and what we could do for their organizations. Call me, Phyllis Burns, today for a FREE consultation 865 584-2265. You may email me at email@example.com for a free estimate.

A good friend just sent me this email about free rocking chairs. Hope this might benefit some of our local charities.
There is a company in Nashville that received 500 rocking chairs from Cracker Barrel and they want to give them away. I thought you might know some nonprofits that might be able to use them for silent auction or live auction items at your event(s) or at their locations. They go and pick them up and they have a contact number and name I believe to reserve them.
Here is the website to go to and get information about it:
