BtoB's Best: Direct Mail (Single): Dymo (Newell Rubbermaid)

Published on .

Agency: gyro, Cincinnati Campaign name: “Free Sample” Launch date: August 2012 Why we liked it: Newell Rubbermaid's Dymo couldn't have made it any simpler for its target audience of healthcare laboratory managers who specify integrated labeling systems.
