The PhillyDMA Direct Marketer of the Year recipient represents the embodiment of true excellence in marketing in our region and in our industry. In the past, outstanding individuals have been awarded this special designation as an acknowledgment of their achievements. This year, the PhillyDMA chose to honor not just a single individual, but an entire company who has demonstrated industry leadership and that direct marketing is still a thriving and vital part of our business community.
In 1965, Richard Bastian & Richard Prendergast founded Instant Copy Service, a small print and copy facility in Philadelphia PA. 50 years later and enough stories to write a direct mail horror book, ICS has grown into a company that elevates and supports some of today’s largest mailers. ICS’ unique way of working combines fun and innovation while maintaining a responsible, supportive, and a transparent rapport with our clients.
Servicing clients that are at the forefront of the financial, insurance, fintech, non-profit and healthcare industries, ICS mailed roughly 650,000,000 mail pieces in 2017 for 45 national clients with capacity to do over a billion.
Our new state of the art facility houses digital imaging, bindery, lettershop and commingle/dropship postal logistics.
We are thrilled, humbled and proud to be recognized as the PDMA marketer of the year.
