Low cost solutions for charities
We all need a bit of help from time to time. While your focus is on providing that support for others, our aim is to make that easier for you to do.
How? By taking the effort away. We simplify the complex, make your charity's budget work harder and give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your mailing is in safe hands. There's no need to pepper your print communications across multiple suppliers. We take care of everything for you. We want you to think of us as an extension to your team, putting your message into the hands of existing and potential donors and volunteers.
The Mailing People are part of a family business that includes an independent design agency and a top 100 ranked printer. It gives us direct access to the buying power and supplier relationships that can deliver tight turnarounds and surprisingly economic solutions to your digital and litho print and mailing needs. It gives you the freedom to choose between a complete end-to-end service or just low-cost mailing.
Our ambition is simple. To give you the charity mailing advice and customised solutions you need to achieve exactly what you want, each time and every time, with a budget you can afford.
Fundraising, volunteers and your donors are the heartbeat of your charity. They’re what keep you going. Finding cost efficient ways to connect with them, to make them feel seen, heard and valued is so important. It’s why the wide range of charities we work with put direct mail at the heart of their campaigns.
When it comes to creating an emotional connection, building trust and conveying important information, the neuroscience behind direct mail means that it works. It’s also the perfect primer for your digital campaigns. 49% more memorable than email and 35% more memorable than social media advertising, a person who has seen a piece of direct mail from your charity will typically spend 30% longer dwelling on your social media adverts. With 92% of direct mail being opened it amplifies your other marketing efforts, nudging people to find out more and take action.
We’re priviledged to work with a wide range of charities with varying budgets and needs, including Adoption Relief, Hants & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, Medecins Sans Frontieres, Release International and Rowans Hospice. If we can help you explore cost-efficient alternatives to your current print and mailing specifications, do get in touch!

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

Great service from start to finish. Job involved both print and mailing - print was high quality and mailing arrived well ahead of our deadline. Our account manager Rachel was superb, kept on top of all the details and kept us in the loop throughout - will 100% use again!
