Privately-held IWCO Direct is headquartered in Chanhassen, MN. The company has served the needs of North American direct marketers for more than 40 years. IWCO Direct provides direct marketing like no one else by seamlessly integrating direct mail services, resulting in streamlined production for all components – printing, plastics, envelope conversion and mailing.

(Postal Optimization Strategy and Technologies) and RideShare™ commingling and logistics management programs deliver dramatic postage savings and faster time to market.
Originally founded in 1969 as Instant Services, Inc., the company installed its first web press in 1976 and became Instant Web, Inc., moving to Chanhassen, MN, 20 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis. The company continued to grow and became The Instant Web Companies with the acquisition of United Mailing, Inc., in 1977, and Victory Envelope in 1981. In 1985, the company expanded 110 miles north in Little Falls, MN, and a year later moved into what is now one of the nation’s largest and most advanced commercial lettershops.
IWCO Direct plays an active role in our communities by advocating for key issues such as transportation, education needs, and health care reform with local political leaders. Of particular importance to us is our support of the Minnesota Business Partnership youth mentoring program. We also work closely with industry partners, the U.S. Postal Service, and our Congressional representatives to build awareness of the mailing industry and its importance to the national economy.
