Dunkin Donuts : Cutting Through the Clutter

A stack of coupons arrives in the mailbox at least once a week. . . most for businesses I never patron.

I rarely even take notice of anything sent in a pile like this and only thumb through to see if any "real mail" got swallowed up by this monstrosity. (learn how to deal with junk mail here)

These advertisers have mere seconds to get attention . . . from the time that it takes me to walk from the mail box to the recycle bin. That's it.

That is why Dunkin' Donuts new mailer is so impressive. (@DunkinDonuts on twitter)

It looks *nothing* like the regurgitated designs with 6pt fonts and screaming colors that signal junk mail.

I have a feeling that Dunkin' Dounuts founder Bill Rosenberg would be pleased.

Yes, I still get giddy when the weatherman even mentions the word.

I am one of those people who will do the bus stop snow dance like I was 7 years old- Every. Single. Time.

You can imagine my excitement when the first flakes started to fall yesterday afternoon. . . It was animal crackers and hot cocoa all around.
