Fast, efficient, bulk mail services
including data cleansing, personalisation, and low-cost postage.
A bulk mailing campaign is the perfect way to send out large quantities of letters quickly, effortlessly and at minimum cost. Not restricted to simple mailshots, you can also use bulk mail services to send out leaflets, brochures, catalogues and magazines using a variety of fulfilment methods.
With open rates exceeding 90% for addressed mail, you can understand why charities and businesses use bulk mail to deliver fund raising campaigns, donor packs, vouchers, and mini product catalogues. It’s a great way to connect and re-connect, filling the gaps left by your digital campaigns and helping to drive recipients online.
Low-cost bulk mail postage
The cost of posting mail in bulk often equates to at least half the total cost of your mailing campaign, so being able to secure every available postage discount will make a big difference. In addition to standard domestic and international postage discounts for business mail, advertising mail and publishing, we can help you qualify for Mailmark discounts (if eligible). In addition, we’re really good at using our expertise and strong supplier relationships with all the main delivery providers to secure low-cost postage for you as standard.
To secure sorted bulk mail discounts you need to send a minimum of 4,000 standard letter tariff items, or 1,000 large letter tariff items.
Data cleansing for bulk mail
When sending mail in bulk, duplicates are inevitable, but they are avoidable. We help you to assess the accuracy of your data by checking your mailing list against recognised quality criteria. By removing duplicates, gone-aways, addresses registered with the mailing preference service, invalid postcodes and deceased people, we can deliver significant savings for you on the cost of your print, fulfilment and postage. We can even enrich your bulk mailing list by adding in traceable contacts that have moved. For charities, alumni groups and organisations keen to retain contact with donors and clients, this is especially important.

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!

PERSONALISING YOUR BULK MAILING
Introducing elements of personalisation beyond name and address details to your bulk mail is an effective way to build trust and engagement with your target audience. From changing individual words and phrases to entire sections of text, we can use mail merge technology to tailor your mail in bulk so that it appears to deliver a message bespoke to the recipient. Images too, can be personalised with our advanced variable data management toolsets. This can be particularly useful for organisations with multiple branches where different location maps and contact information can accompany otherwise generic information.
BULK MAILING FULFILMENT
For the lowest fulfilment costs, we recommend considering naked and self-mailer formats, which don’t require enclosing in an envelope or polywrap. We can add clear, frosted, opaque, coloured, circular or square tabs to folded mail pieces up to 4.7mm thick. Our automated tabbing machines can handle your mail in bulk at a rate of between 7,000 and 30,000 items per hour, depending on the format and configuration of the mail piece.
If you require envelope enclosing, we can fold and machine enclose your bulk mailing at speed, with each Buhrs BB300 machine handling up to 10,000 envelopes per hour, inserting up to 8 items into DL, C5 or C4 envelopes. For chunky bulk mail items, we provide a biodegradable polywrapping service which is Mailmark discount compliant. Our Sitma Polywrapping machines can enclose up to 10 items (including a carrier sheet) up to a maximum pack size of 150mm x 100mm, 60mm thick and 200 grammes in weight.
