Career Information for Mailing Jobs for Stay-at-Home Moms

Dental Clinics

Successful at-home direct mail service work often starts with the creation of a home office. This includes a computer, printer and software to create and print address labels in bulk. Many dental clinics are independently owned and operated and not large enough to hire a big company to print and mail out their monthly bills. This might be a good option for stay-at-home moms to research, and offer at-home help with monthly bills, stuffing envelopes, affixing labels and U.S. Postal Service deliveries.

Many towns have a community theater or other entertainment venue that may need help with mailing announcements to patrons on their mailing lists. These groups also have fundraising events for which they may need help mailing advertising or flyers. These organizations rely on mass mailings to help raise membership and support, and may be become a perfect client for a stay-at-home mom with a direct mail service.
