Direct mail postage

Our specialist expertise and access to multiple postal and distribution
channels means tailored solutions that achieve the best
results for your campaigns.

SAVING YOU MONEY ON POSTAGE

We’re a key partner to Royal Mail, a member of The Strategic Mail Partnership, fully accredited under the Mailing House Partners in Quality and a recommended 'Mail Made Easy' mailing house.

Postage discounts, and knowing how to engineer your mailing to ensure you qualify for every potential saving, is something we excel at.

Because we work with all the leading downstream delivery providers, mailing out over 10 million items a year, we're able to access multiple distribution channels. This gives choice and flexibility, enabling us to tailor costs and delivery times to best suit your project and objectives.

The postal landscape is a complicated one, which is why it makes sense to let our postage experts buy bulk mail postage on your behalf. You'll be surprised how much we can save you.

If you're planning a mailing for the second half of 2024, July 1st is an important date. Royal Mail is increasing its prices, so if you're able to pull your campaign forward, do! We need to release your mailing to post no later than 25th June, to secure the most economic rates. If you can't, then speak to us and we'll explain what we can do to help you mitigate the price rise.

Using The Mailing People to buy your bulk postage is really easy.  Consistently reliable, it includes tracked and signed for items covering:

  • Publishing, Advertising mail and Business mail
  • Low Sort/Hi Sort/OCR/Mailmark
  • JicMail
  • DSA (Downstream access)
  • International mail and consolidation
  • Packets, parcels, Packet 24 and Packet 48
  • Mailsort
    By pre-sorting mail before we pass it on to Royal Mail we can cut up to 30% from franking rates, and even more off the price of a stamp. 
  • Mailmark®
    In addition to Mailsort savings, if your mail can be machine processed and you address are at least 90% accurate (known as PAF accurate), we can access Royal Mail’s Mailmark service for you to gain the cheapest postage rates possible.
  • Downstream access
    Our direct mail solutions include full access to multiple postal and distribution channels (otherwise known as Downstream Access Providers), which means we can compare prices, delivery times and service to tailor a postage solution that is right for your campaign and budget. We use The Delivery Group, UK Mail, Whistl, Citipost and One Post.
  • Advertising mail
    We automatically send Royal Mail a sample of the direct mail items to be posted to find out, to find out if you qualify for further postage discounts. Not all mailing houses will do this for you. You can find out more about it in our fact sheet, Advertising Mail Explained.

I was so pleased with the service I received from The Mailing People in particular the patient support from Rachel our assigned project manager. They went above and beyond to help make sure that our postcard direct mail-out was exactly how we wanted it and I was very impressed with the quality of the finished product. I will definitely be working with them again for all our future mail-out campaigns.

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!

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!
