Resources: Cut Down on Catalog Influx

Here are a few resources for reducing the number of unsolicited catalogs that arrive in your snail mail box:

  1. Best solution: Contact the Federal Trade Commission's National Do Not Call Registry at: or by phone 1-888-382-1222.
  2. Use the letter templates on to request that your name be removed from catalog firms.
  3. Go to the Abacus Alliance web site and request to have your contact info removed from their database. Many mail order companies use their services. You can send a request to an e-mail address or send a snail mail request. Read specifics on their privacy page.
  4. The Direct Marketers Association also maintains a list. Ask to be removed from that one, as well. This site charges a $1 fee for the service.
