What makes the difference between the desk or the shredder?
Inside: I include a short cover letter, head shot with resume.
The outside/ On the large envelope?
Do you suggest mailing labels, or handwritten pen/ marker like a Sharpie.
(I don't use crazy stamps)
Do Not Bend stamp a necessity?
I want to know the answer for this too. Maybe you should post at another section but I'll post it on SAM for you. So check it out for answers.
A simple envelope with PRINTED labels is good enough.
Printed or hand written, doen't seem to make a big difference. I have done both. Always about a 2% return.
My logic was thet hand written woukld show that I didnd't just print the list out and send it to everone, that I took some time to send to agencies that would actually be a good fit... didn't matter.
No "do not bend" necessary
Send postcards instead with multiple headshots on the front and a link to your website, where agents/cds can see your reels, resume and more headshots.
Nothing to open with a postcard. Someone HAS to see my face. Even if it's just a cute intern. HA!
Does anyone have an answer to the stamps question? Does it matter? I've noticed that the post office will just give you a bunch of stamps instead of printing the postage...
The post office used to give me a dollar stamp and a 5 cent stamp for each envelope
Yeah, I don't think printed or hand written would make much difference. The printed labels make it a lot easier I think.
Where do you get your contact lists? I know you can download lists to print here. How up-to-date are they. I've used the labels from showbizltd.com and liked that I got them mailed to me already printed up and I though they were pretty updated.
