Harty delivers on rush Open Enrollment mailer
I wanted to relay a recent win for Harty Press. I was working with another vendor on a set of open enrollment materials for the MEA OE Campaign for Maine Educator’s Association. One of the materials was a direct mailer that was going to just under 40,000 members. Somewhat late in the game (after prepress work was underway) the vendor informed me that they would not be able to make the required drop date of 5/1. I got this news on Friday, April 26th just before 5PM. Given this news, I had to find a vendor immediately who I could move the project to since the drop date was not negotiable. This gave the new vendor just 2 working days to secure paper, create proofs, print, and drop in the mail.

Harty came through. I called John, gave him the details and he said they would make it happen. This was no simple direct mailer: it was a 26.75 x 11 10-panel, double parallel gatefold with double wafer seal piece, printed on 80# coated cover, printing 4/4 full bleed and was distributing to 6 different rate bands – so 6 unique versions + samples. So the job was complex and required 6 sets of proofs per rate band for approval plus a photo showing the fold. I was amazed that they could take it on and accomplish it given the limited amount of time left to do so. Harty saved the project!
