Merchandise companies like 4imprint often send out catalogs or promotional material to a mailing list as a way to attract potential new customers. But that also means typically unwanted mail ends up crowding your inbox, without you ever agreeing to it.
To put a stop to 4imprint catalogs, and other marketing material, you can unsubscribe from their mailing list, and we’re here to show you the quickest way to do it.
What to do to cancel the 4imprint catalog
The 4imprint catalog contains a selection of personalized products, including water bottles, buttons, stationary, tote bags, and more, mainly geared toward businesses.
If you have a business, and continue to receive the 4imprint catalog, it’s easy to unsubscribe and reduce the amount of junk mail that lands in your company mailbox. All you have to do is visit the “Unsubscribe” page on the 4imprint website and provide the details requested.
You will need to know your mailing zip code and you’ll need to get your catalog “account code”—this is a number written in the blue field on the catalog copy you received.
Now, once you’ve submitted your request, 4imprint doesn’t stipulate exactly how long before unsubscribing takes effect. In our experience, though, mailing list removal processes like this can take anywhere between 4 and 6 weeks.
Keep in mind, you could also continue to receive junk mail from 4imprint during that time.
What to do if you keep receiving catalogs from 4imprint
If you’ve submitted your opt-out request and waited over 6 weeks, but are still being spammed with 4imprint junk mail, don’t worry, you still have options.
File a formal complaint with 4imprint by contacting customer service. You can call them directly at 1-877-446-7746 or email email@example.com.
Try sending the catalog back. Simply write “Refused: Return to Sender” on the catalog label and put it back in the mail.

How to stay off 4imprint’s mailing list
So here’s the bad news: even if you take all the actions above, there’s still no guarantee that you’ll stay off mailing lists and stop receiving junk mail.
This is because companies deal with data brokers to acquire your information to add to their mailing lists. Data brokers harvest publicly accessible information from the Internet before selling it off to third parties. This leads to your junk mail, robocalls, and spam texts.
Getting your information taken off data-broker sites is the only effective method to put a stop to junk mail. The problem is, data brokers don’t make it easy and these opt-out processes can take weeks or months to complete. That’s if the request is honored to begin with.
A data broker removal service, like DeleteMe, however, can ensure your information is taken off of data-broker sites, and stays off. We can also help businesses in need of our services support their staff by making sure employee personal data is always protected. Speak to one of our expert privacy advisors to find out how you can reduce both junk mail and corporate risk at the same time.
