FAQS for Direct Mail
What is the best format for a direct mail piece?
The answer to this depends on who you want to target and what the Direct mail is.
We often say that if you want to send a traditional/ formal mailing, we suggest a letter in an envelope. This can be single-sided or double-sided. You can have your logo on the envelope if required.
Receiving a letter that is addressed to you personally usually suggests that it is essential information inside.
By law, we always have to have a return address on the envelope. This can be your address or our mailing address.
Postcard mailings are more to the point where you could use pictures, logos and colour to attract people’s attention.
We now opt to cover brochures or catalogues in compostable poly rather than an envelope as it looks more modern. Unlike an envelope you can see through, it is recyclable and cost-effective.
How can I increase the response rate for my direct mail campaign?
The top 3 ways to do this would be Personalised mail, offering a discount and having an eye-catching design.
What are some cost-effective ways to target my direct mail audience?
The most cost-effective way will be to mail over 4,000 per mailing if you have enough data. Keep the weight and size under 100g. A postcard mailing would be cheaper than a mailing going inside an envelope.
What are the costs associated with a direct mail campaign?
This can vary for several reasons. Do you need to pay a designer? Do you need to buy the data, or do you already have it?
Outsourcing to a mailing house like ourselves could work out much cheaper than doing it yourself. We offer more affordable postage rates due to the number of mailings we do within the year.

How can I ensure my direct mail piece stands out in a crowded mailbox?

How can I personalise my direct mail piece to increase its effectiveness?
Adding the customer’s name is the 1st personalisation to add. People are more entitled to open mail when it is addressed to them personally. Add an incentive like a discount code or some samples. Who doesn’t love to try something new which is gifted?
