Easy Street Designs

Neighborhood Values direct mail postcards

The Neighborhood Values postcard products take advantage of the U.S. Postal Service's Every Door Direct program. Cards are mailed without addresse on them, to entire carrier routes, rather than to a list. This results in big savings on postage, which we can combine with design, printing and delivery to the post office to provide a very affordable, convenient means for businesses to reach nearby customers with full color direct mail pieces.


Singles - 50¢ each includes postage, layout,

printing, bundling and delivery to post office!


For a single company mailing,  the ad space on each side is 9.5" x 6.5" less a small space for the postage indicia. When you factor in both sides, it's essentially a full page of full color ad space on 100lb gloss cover stock. This allows for graphics, photo, information, qr codes and coupons if you like.  Cost is just 60 cents per address, which includes layout, full color digital printing, postage and delivery of you cards to the appropriate post office in the proper format.

We'll help you select the carrier route(s) as well. Cards must be mailed within the Colorado Springs, Security, Widefield or Fountain areas. Minimum for the Every Door Direct program is 200. However you need to select entire carrier routes, which are typically more like 500-600 addresses each. Once your card is designed and approved by you, we'll print it, bundle it according to USPS specs, attach the appropriate paperwork and confirm with you delivery to the post office. Allow 1-3 days from proof approval to drop at post office.

To get started on your Neighborhood Values mailing, call Easy Street Designs at 719-390-5080, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or stop by the shop at 51 Widefield Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO from 8:30am to 6pm Monday through Friday and from 10am to 2pm Saturday.




 Co-op Mailings - 10¢ each includes postage, layout, printing and delivery to post office!

Our cooperative marketing mailings are currently available in 80911, 80817 and 80925 zip codes. About every two to three weeks we select an area that encompasses  2,000 - 3,500 residential addresses to mail. These postcards have six full color ads (3 on each side) measuring 3.75" x 4.25". These cards are also printed on 100lb gloss cover stock and measure 12"x6" in total. The sides are printed upside down from one another so that coupons (if any) will have minimal impact on a coupon on the opposite side.

The cost is just 10 cents per address per advertiser; for example $250 (and some tax) for a 2,500 piece mailing. Again, price includes layout if needed, printing, postage, prep and delivery to post office.

We post updates on where we're going next and when on,  FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn. Of course you can always call, email or stop by to get information as well.

If you're a local independent business person, crafter or artist who would like to show off your wares, Her Story Cafe can help. Her Story Cafe, at 2356 S. Academy Blvd in Colorado Springs, teams up with a local entrepreneur each Saturday. From 1pm to 3pm they can set up a display, offer samples and show and tell folks about their business or their art.

There's no charge for the space, but owner Liz Rozenbaum expects participants to promote their event a couple of weeks out. It's a great way for others to promote themselves and it helps generate traffic and introduce new people to the Cafe.

This past Saturday, Amanda Gentile of Palace Portraits and Photography was on hand as part of a "mini glam session', which included lunch, make-up and a photo shoot.

They're currently booked through March, but if you're interested in booking a Saturday, visit Liz at Her Story Cafe at 2356 S. Academy Blvd (Astrozon and Academy) Tuesday - Friday 7 am - 3 pm
Saturdays 8 am - 3 pm.

Press Release

Introducing a New Program Just for Sibs of Kids with Special Needs

Brothers and sisters will have the longest-lasting relationship with a sibling who has a disability - one that can easily exceed 65 years.  During their lives, they will experience most of the unique concerns and joys their parents do.  But few siblings of kids with special needs ever have a chance to talk about their issues with others who "get it"  - until now.

Julie Hudak-Salvat, LCSW, and sponsoring organization, Special Kids Special Families, is introducing a new program called Sibshops.  Brothers and sisters of kids with special needs from the Colorado Springs area now have a program that's just for them.  At Sibshops, they'll have a chance to meet other kids whose brothers and sisters have special needs and talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sibling with a developmental disability, learning need, or special medical issue.  Most important, they'll have fun!

Press Release

The City of Colorado Springs is pleased to announce that our Westside Community Center will be recognized by University of Colorado Colorado Springs as the 2012 Civic Innovator of the Year.  The center is receiving the award for our partnership with Woodmen Valley Chapel’s Center for Strategic Ministry. The award will be presented during a luncheon hosted by the Peak Freedom Forum and UCCS on January 29 from 11:30 – 1:30 at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort.

The Civic Innovator of the Year Award is given annually by UCCS’s Center for Study of Government and the Individual as a way to recognize and honor local individuals or organizations that are doing valuable, interesting, innovative work in the community through private sector initiatives that help address problems that may otherwise be left solely to government.  Such was the case when the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department explored alternative operational models to address reduced funding for a number of its facilities in 2010. The resulting partnership with the Center for Strategic Ministry ensured the Westside Community Center would remain open while reducing its reliance on City funds. 

Since formalizing the partnership in April 2010, services have continued and expanded to provide a well-rounded community center experience that includes everything from providing summer day camps and a reading mentor program for children to nutrition classes and a senior meals program for adults.  On average, over 8,000 individuals participate in the Center’s programs on a monthly basis.  With such success, the partnership agreement was recently renewed through December 2015.

On hand to receive the award at the luncheon, and discuss the partnership, will be Dick Siever,  Executive Director of the Westside Community Center, and City Liaison Kim King, Parks Administration, Recreation and Cultural Services Manager.
