Flanagin’s Bulk Mail Service works to help the Northwest Indiana community take care of a variety of postal needs. Whether it’s sending out large mailings, coordinating regular mailed promotions, or anything in between, the company is always there to help customers make sure their mailings get delivered efficiently, quickly, cost effectively, and above all else, with a smile.


Running your own business comes with an ever-growing list of responsibilities. Keeping connected with the community at large about Flanagin’s Bulk Mail Service’s people, services, and ability to impact businesses in the community often proved a challenge.


Donna Flanagin and her company, Flanagin’s Bulk Mail Service, have been with GreatNews.Life from the start. As a small business owner in Valparaiso, Flanagin immediately saw something special in the idea behind GreatNews.Life, which was an all-positive, community-based company in the Region. Flanagin is always bubbling with excitement to share any positive news of her own, so she saw GreatNews.Life as the ideal communication partner that aligns with her positive vision.

“We’ve been with GreatNews.Life since the beginning,” Flanagin said. “Chris came up to the office, told me all about what his plans were, and I was on board from the beginning because I just thought it was a really great idea.”

As both companies continued to grow over the years, Flanagin saw that GreatNews.Life was not just an outlet to educate Northwest Indiana on bulk mailing, but also as a way to share with the area the things most media outlets don’t cover, such as the Flanagin Fairies, donations to various nonprofit organizations, and much more, especially when it comes to community involvement as opposed to strictly business content.
