About Us

XPress Promotion is a direct mail and marketing company focusing on small business marketing in and around Washington, DC.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to provide quality promotion that effectively markets our clients and their services.

Some people believe that the correct thing to do in tough economic times is to cut promotion — “No one wants to buy anything now!”

We believe the opposite — that effective marketing can be effective no matter the “economic situation.” And we have stacks of client testimonials that back this up.

We think the absolute best thing to do is pour the coals on promotion, promote more and more broadly, and when you’re in doubt about it — promote some more.

We apply marketing principles that help you isolate the exact right message that is appropriate for your exact right market. This ensures you gain maximum exposure of your products and services to the right people.

When you work with us, you’re working one-on-one with your marketing team. There’s no middle man or cookie-cutter promotion. Our campaigns are custom-tailored and uniquely crafted just for you and your exact situation—designed to fulfill what you need and want. We pride ourselves on quality in our relationships and our care in making your business expand.
