Direct mail

A simple, cost effective
postcard mailing solution

From design to print to despatch – we’ll manage the whole process of your direct mail campaign.

Direct Mail postcard mailings are a highly cost effective form of direct marketing and are a straight forward direct form of messaging. 

When the postcard is delivered the reader has to see the headline. There is no envelope to get in the way and the reader has no time to judge if they want to read the card as they view your message immediately.

Variable data and images on postcards deliver a clear targeted message honed to the reader. When digitally printed every card can be different not just in the address but in the messaging and the offer.

How much does a postcard direct mail cost?

Costs are low and the numbers you produce can also be small. So targeting postcards at niche areas e.g. to an individual road, a block of flats – talking to recipients, making them an offer created especially for them.

For high volume mailing of postcards move to offset litho printed and then inkjet address brings the cost down even further.

GDPR compliance with direct mail

Did you know you can send postcards to your customers and you do not need their explicit consent?

Following the introduction of GDPR, businesses that send direct mail can do so on the basis of legitimate interest. You do not need to record consent from the recipient.
