SMG (formerly Sycle Marketing Group), a leading newsletter marketing company, has been helping practices with their direct mail and printing needs for more than a decade. Combining design services with a cutting-edge print and HIPAA compliant direct mail house, we get your message out on time and on budget.
Quick Turn Times
Our newsletter marketing company works well with tight deadlines. Most jobs can be printed and mailed within a week of getting approved artwork. No more 6-week lead times as many in our industry have had to work around.
SMG has invested in production level equipment to get your print, design or mail project produced with the highest quality at the most affordable prices, in the shortest amount of time possible. Have a special job, no problem! We have partnered with several specialty print shops who allow us to expand our capabilities into areas like booklets, die cut, foiling, etc.
SMG provides access to our professional designers who are available to assist with the design of your print project. A little professional design can take a good idea and make it a great print project. The best part is, in most cases, if we are printing your project, those design services are included in your healthcare newsletter order!

What people usually ask about our services
What do you need from me to get started?
We need your logo in as high resolution as possible, your clinic website so we can pull address location info from, or just that info if no website, and if you have a specific desired color scheme that is outside of your logo colors.
What is the length of time from the beginning of design to when it can be mailed out?
The timing depends on how fast we move through the proofing process. The design turnaround time typically takes 2-3 days from when we have your article choices to when we can get a proof to you. From there, it all depends on how fast we get the requested changes back and then can get that revised proof approved.
What kind of content goes in the newsletter?
The newsletter is completely customizable by you, the client. You are welcome to choose articles to use out of our provided library list of relevant content, or you can provide the content yourself. You can also do a mixture of the two. We have some clients who like to do a recipe in each newsletter they mail. It’s completely up to you!
How long does it take the newsletters to reach homes after being mailed?
That depends on the postage option chosen. First class postage is guaranteed in homes in 1-3 days from being dropped in the mail. Presort standard postage which is our other bulk option, is less expensive, but also takes anywhere from 4-8 days typically. This type of postage does not have a guaranteed in home timeframe.
What kind of paper are the newsletters printed on?
They are printed on a 100# silk text which is a thicker weighted text stock with a glossy sheen to it.
How many newsletters do most people do per year?
We have many options from doing one newsletter per year, or basically whenever you choose, to doing 4 or even more per year. It’s really up to you. We do offer subscription based prices if you choose to do more than one per year that offer discounted rates when signing up.
