Order MODEX 2020 Postcards

The MODEX 2020 postcard is designed as a self-mailer. You won’t need an envelope, just a mailing label and a postage stamp or meter mark. However, MHI also offers free 6”x9” MODEX 2020 envelopes to exhibitors. They’re ideal if you want to personalize your mailing with a cover letter, flyer or promotional item. These postcard mailers are pre-printed and are not customizable.

Complete the Direct Mail order form and email to abatty@mhi. org. If you have any questions about the Direct Mail program, contact Alex Batty at abatty@mhi.org or 704-676-1190.
