Direct mail fulfilment

Choose from a full suite of options including:
automated folding, finishing, enclosing, biodegradable polywrapping
and bespoke hand fulfilment.

FULFILMENT AT OUR FINGERTIPS

Our mail fulfilment services cover everything that is done to your printed materials, and any other physical direct mail elements, to get them ready for mailing. This could include folding, collating, bundling, polywrapping and packaging. Where possible, we automate the process to minimise costs, but sometimes (typically due to the range of sizes and weights of the content), bespoke hand fulfilment is needed.

We're particularly good at membership pack fulfilment. At the start of each fulfilment project, we take time to engineer packs to secure the lowest postage rates based on size and volume. We can also advise on print specifications to reduce your pack weight. If your project is on the cusp of a higher postage threshold, our advice could save your £s, so do involve us in your fulfilment projects as early as you can.

You don’t need to have a regular mail fulfilment order with us to use our short and long-term storage facilities or overnight distribution services. Just tell us what you need and we’ll build the solution around you.

"Your staff were always professional, polite, patient and prompt. They fulfilled an urgent need with speed and accuracy. Special mention for Justin and Rachel."

John Wademan, The Solent Schools

Our fulfilment services: 

  • Automated folding and finishing
    We provide a full suite of options including folding, staple binding, drilling, gluing and tabbing. We do it all in-house and can handle any size between SRA3 and DL.
  • Automated envelope enclosing
    When it comes to mailing envelopes, we can machine enclose pretty much anything from one to ten items, including 2D camera matching, from size A6 to A3. Each of our Buhrs enclosing machines can process up to 10,000 DL, C5 or C4 envelopes an hour. That equates to 160,000 envelopes a day.
  • Hand fulfilment
    For bespoke direct mail fulfilment, unusual shapes and sizes, we offer affordable hand fulfilment, tailored to your needs.
  • Biodegradable Polywrapping
    Polywrapping is a great way to deliver your message because it gives you exposure before it even lands on desks and doorsteps. Our direct mail solutions include polywrapping everything from chunky catalogues to single newsletter mailings. We also do bespoke hand insertion to give you greater flexibility for odd sizes, promotional items and giveaways. Machine enclosing is available for 1 to 10 items, from A6 up to A3. We offer clear, printed and biodegradable polythene as standard and can also offer bespoke solutions to suit your project.
  • Storage and distribution
    For regular direct mail fulfilment and bulk mail projects, you might like to take advantage of our affordable and flexible pallet storage. You only pay for the number of pallet positions used in any week, and we have 1500 spaces on site in our secure warehouse. Collateral can be supplied in loose boxes or pre-palletised.

Brilliant experience with The Mailing People and particularly Rachel. I had a response to my quote within an hour of submitting it. The project was completed very quickly and efficiently. We will definitely be using The Mailing People for future campaigns.

From the first moment I started working with Rebecca , she has been a pleasure to deal with. She handles all our requests promptly and efficiently and delivers an excellent service when looking after our projects. She is the first person I turn to when looking for a quote.

I really enjoyed working with this company, very responsive, clear explanations, very good follow-up of the order. This is all the more important when you are a foreign company and you are not used to doing this type of work abroad. I will certainly use the Mailing People again for other projects!

We have been using The Mailing people via Bishops printers since 2019, they have coped well with our sometimes very tight deadlines. They have always been happy to accomodate our very particular needs when it comes to mailings. Whilst I cannot fault what they do for us, I would like to see some ideas coming through of things that may have worked for their other customers...show us some samples, we're always open to consider new ideas! 288 Group Ltd
