Fast, efficient laser digital printing & inkjet print services
for short-run mailshots to personalised, bulk mail campaigns
Our digital printing services deliver cost efficiency and speed, plus the ability to personalise your content.
By crafting tailored messages that include variable images and text you’ll increase levels of engagement and conversion. Importantly, your digital printing costs are unaffected, so your ROI will also increase.
If this isn’t something you or your designer have done before, we can help. Our expert team will explore your plans, what you want to achieve, and what we can do to minimise your costs, while optimising your returns. For us, it's all about making your direct mail campaigns as successful and as cost efficient as they can be - and it's what get's us out of bed each morning!
Although digital printing is associated with smaller print runs (we produce mailshots from just 100 items), we can digitally overprint large runs of up to 200,000 items that have been produced more cost efficiently using our litho printing service. For example, postcards or brochure mailings that require an address to be overprinted, or vouchers and flyers that require a unique reference or QR codes to be added. By spot sealing the litho print we stop the ink from smudging when overprinting.
We know image quality matters to you. For high quality results that won’t easily rub off in your hands, we’ve chosen to use Xerox dry ink (toner-based) digital printers. Our machines work well with the most popular litho paper stocks, which can jam some digital printers. However, you will find that heavily textured materials often don’t print well on digital presses, so sometimes we will recommend litho printing even for small print runs.
On larger runs that don’t require full colour printed envelopes, we recommend inkjet printing your envelopes. It’s more cost efficient and significantly faster. We can print 30,000 envelopes an hour compared to 9,000 using the laser printer. If you’re working to a very tight deadline, that can make all the difference.
We can digitally print envelopes in full colour, extending right out to the fold (edge to edge) for really impactful designs that will increase open rates. Each envelope can carry a different design tailored specifically to the interests or profile of the recipient. The print cost remains the same - unlike your engagement levels, which are likely to go up.

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!
