Ballantine Features Direct Marketing Case Study from The Skin Cancer Foundation

The Skin Cancer Foundation's extremely successful redesign of its order form mail piece was recently featured in Ballantine's monthly direct mail newsletter.

Wayne, NJ, August 01, 2006 --( The Ballantine Corporation's July 2006 issue of their Sample of the Month newsletter featured The Skin Cancer Foundation's extremely successful redesign of its order form mail piece. Ballantine's newsletter is a monthly online publication that showcases direct mail projects they produce for their clients with samples, strategies and results.

More information on their newsletter can be found at:

The issue featuring The Skin Cancer Foundation talks about how the Foundation uses an order form mail piece to sell their patient education materials to dermatologists. The order form featured in the newsletter was used to sell Sun & Skin News, a quarterly newsletter for the general public, and the disease brochure, The ABCDEs of Melanoma.

The newsletter goes on to talk about how the Foundation had their graphic designer, Joe Favale from Shine Advertising, redesign their order form mail piece to give it a more modern design with an easier and more effective way to place an order.

The results were amazing.

"We could not believe how fast orders came pouring in," said Mark Teich, Publications Manager for The Skin Cancer Foundation. "The amount of brochures that normally takes 6 months to a year to go through was gone in less than 2 months. In fact, we had to go on press a second time for more brochures, and it's looking like we may need another press run soon."
