Digital printing

Fast, efficient laser digital printing & inkjet print services
for short-run mailshots to personalised, bulk mail campaigns

Digital Printing Services

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!

Laser printing

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.

Inkjet printing

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.

Digitally printed envelopes

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.

The fine detail

  • Up to 9,000 envelopes per hour
  • Printing in 5 colours
  • 600 dpi print resolution

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!
