Our print and post service saves you time and money
Our seamless print and post service utilises the latest equipment and technology to save you time and money. For a one-off job or regular mailings, our print and post service gives you peace of mind that your mailing gets done in its entirety, leaving you time to get on with the important task of running your business. Let us do the hard work so you don’t have to.
All you have to do is upload your mailing list and your template letter, then we’ll get everything printed, put into envelopes and posted. It’s as simple as that. And if you need a business or consumer datalist to grow your leads, we can help with that too. We are in the business of connecting you with the people that matter in the simplest and most cost-effective way.
When you use Create & Post the system merges the documents into print-ready files and sends them to print on state-of-the-art digital print presses. They are then inserted into envelopes using modern industrial machines, Mailsort is applied, and collected by Royal Mail or Downstream Access providers.
Your address list needs to be saved as a CSV file (30,000 rows max). If you wish to mail to more than the maximum please contact us. If you have a list saved in non CSV format this can be converted with most recent versions of office software.
Please note that your file must include the minimum required fields: Business Name or Surname, Address Line 1, Town and Postcode.
2. Your letter that you wish to send saved as a PDF document. You can include your letterhead, logo, letter text, pictures and your signature. Download a sample template. If you need help writing your letter, you can use our online letter writing tool.
A PDF is a widely used name of a format of document that’s a bit like an image. PDF documents can be created in different sizes from an original electronic document of some kind. With Create & Post you can use an A4 sized PDF or letterhead as the background of your mailing letter.
If you have a document that is not in PDF format this can easily be converted with most recent versions of office software.
Please note Create & Post will handle one CSV file address list and one PDF document at a time. Don’t forget – you won’t need to use any of your own stationery, envelopes or stamps – we take care of everything else for your mailing.
– Reduced staff costs. Would you still need your own print/post room if you used Create & Post?
– Reduced postal costs. We sort your mail and consolidate it so you achieve significant postage discounts.
– Reduced stationery and consumables costs. We can print millions of letters so our buying power is excellent.
– Reduced equipment costs. General office printers, inserting machines and franking machines are not as efficient or reliable.
– Reduced energy costs. With less machinery and people, your energy costs will be lower.
– Less wastage. Create & post includes address enhancement and returns management to maximise delivery and future targeting.
– Pay as you go. It’s like having your own state-of-the-art print and mail facility, but without the fixed costs.
Industry research suggests that printing and mailing your own mailing letters in house can cost from 85p to £1.05, when you include printer ink, paper, envelopes, postage and your time. The cost of printing and mailing letters using Create & Post starts from just 54p each. This is also much lower than using a mailing house which can often have a minimum charge of 1000 items. Total savings achievable through Create & Post can be viewed using our Cost Savings Calculator.
