Oh yeah, I forgot to say one more thing. You can probably find your mailing list completely free at the library. Ask your local library if they carry the infoUSA database and how to get into it.

If they don't have it check out the library in Hamilton County Tennessee, I know they have it, (I am a member) they have a $25 charge for an out of the area 3 year membership (or close to that) and you can download files for free off of your computer.

I send a lot of clients to this thing, InfoUSA is a huge database, you'll love it.

Again, Good luck.

I know this is an old thread, but the topic is still important for other people working on the same thing. Branding is a tough thing. A company like Starbucks had its brand and logo for years before anyone really knew about it. You can't create brand recognition overnight. You need to slowly develop your product and customer service so that people love what you do. Then they'll care about your brand and logo. On the multi-touch marketing, you get to the point that people aren't going to be convinced to hire you or buy your product the first time they see it. They need several opportunities to understand what you're about. Send out a postcard, send a letter, make a phone call, visit them in person. Find as many different ways to connect as you can.

I got a dead link when i went to view your images
Those prices are actually pretty good, even if they don't include a list. You could save a lot more if you trim it down to a 3 or 4 pane single sheet brochure.
