Print newsletter vs. e-newsletter

Trying to decide between a print newsletter and a newsletter delivered by e-mail? Here are some of the pros and cons.

Print newsletter--Pro
  • Portable
  • More control over look and feel
  • Better for longer documents
  • Stands out more because most people get fewer letters than e-mails

  • Interactive, including links to your website
  • You can track who reads what
  •  Speedy delivery
  • Low cost to send

Print newsletter--Con
  • High production costs
  • Production and delivery take longer than for e-newsletters
  • You may not have e-mail addresses for all of your contacts
  • You need permission to add e-mail addresses to your distribution 
  • May get caught in spam filter 
  • Not so good for long articles
  • Less control over look and feel
