Bulk Postage Rates 2022 for Bulk Mailings and One Off Sends

UK’s Leading bulk postage provider and alternative to Royal Mail. Save 37% on Royal Mail bulk postage costs. We collect from you, bring it back to our sortation depots, then hand it over to Royal Mail for delivery, and you save significant amounts of money.

Due to the high volumes of print and mail we dispatch each year through our mailing houses, we get the lowest possible rates on bulk postage available in the UK.

We were the pioneer of providing bulk postage services for regular clients who have one-off mass mailings to send, which was born from our client’s frustrations of having to stamp and frank sometimes thousands of letters by hand.

Bulk postage prices for 2022

Bulk postage prices for letters, large letters and packets and parcels for 2022 are at the highest they have ever been. Over the years, postage prices have increased massively, to the point that it’s now becoming expensive to send through the Post Office.

Using our services is cheaper as we act as a pre-sortation centre for Royal Mail and therefore get significant discounts on our bulk postage.

No longer do you have to stamp, frank or take boxes to the local post office – here at The Direct Mail Company, we can collect your mail by the courier as quick as the same day, we bring it back to our mailing house, we pre-sort it for Royal Mail and then hand it over to them for delivery.

We make our money as we pre-sort the mail for Royal Mail, meaning it’s ready to go straight to the local delivery offices once we have sorted the mail. By doing this, we get a nice discount on the postage costs.

We pass these savings on to you and make a little bit to pay our staff and overheads.

We make our money by doing the mail sortation work for Royal Mail


This is how we can access lower postage rates than you will get from franking mail or purchasing stamps from the Post Office.

We make a little on it, and you get a cheaper rate than you would have if you had not Google’d ‘bulk postage rates’ or ‘mass mailing’ and found us!

Our services are a great alternative to Royal Mail as we not only offer to price for bulk mail rates for businesses, but we can also offer for any client who is sending more than 250 items in one send.

We arrange a courier collection from your address as soon as the same day if booked before 11 am, the mail comes back to our depot, we sort it, and then we hand this over to Royal Mail.

It is that simple.

    What is the cheapest way to send bulk post?

    If you are regularly thinking of sending out bulk postage, then the cheapest way to send bulk mail is by owning a franking machine. If a business is sending over 100 letters per week, then a franking machine can save you money. However, many businesses do not want to do this or invest in a franking machine so they pay for other companies like us to do it for them.

    What is the maximum letter size?

    The maximum letter size for Royal Mail standard post in the Uk is C5 which has dimensions of  229mm x 162mm. Any larger than this and it will be classed as a parcel. Your envelope also needs to weigh less than 100g and be under 5mm thick to be accepted as a large letter.
