There’s an old adage that experience is the best teacher. And when it comes to experience, former Los Angeles Postmaster James Smith more than fits the bill. Smith, recently retired as Postmaster and served 44 years with the Post Office, launched Executive Communication Services Inc., last month.

ECS is a direct mailing business that offers creative and direct mail solutions as well as e-commerce, reprographic and printing services. We are a “One Stop Shop”, we can assist in development and graphic design of a customer’s mail piece including the addressing, sorting and delivery to the Post Office for in-home delivery. We also have the ability to monitor and track mail volumes to apprise our customers regarding delivery status. Our first step is to meet and sit down with our customers to evaluate their direct mailing needs. Once we have agreed upon the design and targeted customer demographics, the mail piece is finalized. In short, we provide everything that is needed to ensure a successful direct mailing.

Our goal is to provide excellent and quality direct mail service at affordable rates. We will always strive to exceed our customer’s expectations. “I always wanted to have my own business,” said Smith, who during his 40-plus years as a career postal employee, climbed the ladder to become Postmaster, but it was his stint as the postal service’s Manager of Marketing that helped Smith gain valuable knowledge and experience in marketing solutions. “Being the Manager of Marketing gave me a chance to meet many business owners and see first-hand the needs of the community,” said, Smith.
