Spotlight Client of the Week – Butterball

ummhumm | creative studio - EDDM

We were approached by Butterball, Inc. in 2016 to produce a direct mail campaign using the USPS® EDDM® or Every Door Direct Mail® solution. Having created the templates for the EDDM2go and DirectMail2go programs, we felt confident in the task.

Butterball wished to hire employees and increase exposure in Arkansas. We devised a design that would attract the right worker to fit Butterball’s specifications. Working with their corporate human resources managers, we were able to incorporate a design that was straight forward and to the point.

Now in 2022, we continue with the campaign and mail out over 153,000 postcards every quarter. Butterball’s response rate is still being generated and tabulated but initial reports are favorable and new workers are being hired every month. If you live in the Fayetteville, Arkansas region and see a postcard, drop us a line.

Butterball’s History

Turkey has a way of bringing people together. In fact, it’s hard to think of Thanksgiving without it.

The Butterball turkey was introduced in 1954, the product named for its broad breast and plump, round shape. In 1985, Carolina Turkeys was founded, a business-to-business expert with a passion for quality and service.

In 2006, these two identities merged to become Butterball, LLC, owners of a beloved consumer and foodservice brand, dedicated to bringing people together to celebrate occasions great and small.

For 60 years we’ve seen that — from Thanksgiving dinner to the perfect sandwich to a healthier breakfast choice — people love turkey. We love turkey, too.
