Leaflet Distribution Campaigns and Flyer Delivery Services
Leaflet distribution and leaflet delivery services, as opposed to traditional direct mail, are a great way of sending mass marketing campaigns at an affordable price.

We offer a complete leaflet delivery service, including design, printing, and campaign dispatch. Some campaigns are GPS tracked with GPS reporting.
We carry out letterbox marketing for many local authorities, the Highways Agency and the NHS. Unaddressed mail is a great way for your brand to be seen and promote your offers.

Leaflet distribution service & leaflet delivery services – UK wide include:
Leaflet Distribution for A6, A5, A4, and A3 leaflets
We can deliver leaflets anywhere in the UK excluding the Scottish Highlands. As a leading leaflet distribution service, we offer fast turnaround for a range of leaflets from A6 size right through to A3 sizes. Please note that we would be required to fold leaflets that are large so that they fit into letterboxes.
Flyer distribution for A6, A5, A4, and A3 flyers
By far our most popular delivery service is our flyer delivery services in the UK. We post millions of flyers each year through the UK’s letterboxes for a range of businesses and charities alike. Contact us to get our trusted and vetted delivery staff to deliver your flyers as soon as next week.
Magazine Distribution for a wide range of publication sizes from A6 through to A4
We work with various large and small publishers in the UK for magazine distribution services. These range from A6 to A4 sizes and can include community magazines and other purposes for this type of print. We can offer a quick turnaround if required on any of our services.
Brochure Distribution for brochures and booklets ranging from A6 to A4 sizes
Brochure distribution is a popular choice to get large scale coverage for product brochures and other booklets. It is generally best to have a lighter brochure over a heavy one as our distributors have to carry these around. Larger brochures (heavier ones) attract a higher rate to deliver as it takes longer to deliver. We do drop many A4 and A5 booklets under 100g – this seems to be the most popular range of size and weight that we fulfil for brochure deliveries.
Special deliveries such as product samples and miscellaneous
Our expert teams can deliver product samples and other miscellaneous items that are not otherwise listed. As long as they can fit through a standard letterbox then we can deliver your items.
Door to door for councils and election flyer deliveries
We deliver many door to door drops for councils, MP’s and election mailings across the UK so if you have any of these types of door drops we can help.
COVID-19 flyer distribution
Since COVID-19 we have delivered millions of items for councils and Government Bodies. If you require a quick turnaround for COVID-19 deliveries please contact us today.

What is leaflet distribution?
Leaflet distribution is also known as flyer distribution, leaflet delivery, flyer delivery, door to door marketing or letterbox marketing. It is a direct marketing medium used to reach a large number of homes at a low cost. Many large and small businesses, as well as Government bodies, use leaflet distribution regularly.

How we are changing the leaflet distribution industry
Many business owners and marketing agencies know that the leaflet distribution campaigns industry perception has had a bad name over the years.
We are here to put an end to that sigma.
We used to get asked if we provided leaflet distribution campaigns and services, and yes, we did take on some jobs; however, we quickly realised that there were HUGE issues with the industry.
Where do we start?
Well, we have all heard the stories of ‘i think they were all just thrown in the bin’ or ‘did they even deliver all of my flyers’!
This, in short, is quite quickly worked out why by doing some simple maths.
Let’s take the average minimum wage from 18 to 25+, which works out to be £7.18 per hour.
It takes around 10 hours to drop 1,000 leaflets (1 day’s work).
That is £71.80 per 1,000 leaflets, which only covers the staff’s wages if paid minimum wage.
Then we have a few other costs:
- Van / Transport costs
- Fuel costs
- Delivery costs to get the flyers to the local warehouse
- Overheads of the business such as rent, utilities, office staff, corporation tax, accountants fees, etc
Then they need also to make some profit, right?
So without having to add up the costs of the 5 bullet points plus extra, it’s clear that even before any of those extra costs are taken into account, that the MINIMUM you should be paying just to pay the delivery staff legally is £71.80 per 1,000 leaflets, plus VAT.
It doesn’t even matter if they say we will get 10 staff delivering 10,000 leaflet drops in one day; they are all entitled to the same pay rate as you would if 1 person did 10,000 over 10 days.
The above National Minimum Wage figures are solid facts and numbers; this is absolutely only demonstrated to show you that if you get offers for ‘cheap leaflet distribution’, you’re most likely not getting the full amount delivered, based on law, facts and figures.
Quite simply, this could be why many multinational corporations and Government bodies trust us as their number one distributor for their leaflet distribution campaigns.

How much does leaflet distribution cost?
With us, our rates start at £87 per 1,000 leaflets plus VAT depending upon the size and weight of the printed material that you are looking to distribute through the UK’s letterboxes.
We use our trusted delivery staff and partners to deliver an honest and reliable service that’s trusted by thousands of businesses over the years we have been in operation. We like to provide peace of mind that your flyers or leaflets are printed and distributed to the surrounding areas that you choose on ordering.
Leaflet and printing services
Yes, we have some of the cheapest print and mail prices that you will find in the UK. What’s better, we don’t (and probably should!) put much margin on our print either which means that we can pass on the unbelievable prices that we get printed materials for.
Many previous clients have noted that we may be slightly higher in terms of price for the door drop distribution; however, with the savings on print, we were cheaper all around.
We can print up to several million quantities of the below:
- Flyers & leaflets
- Folded leaflets
- Business cards
- Presentation folders
Whilst we can print pretty much anything, we can also use our mailing house facility to enclose items into envelopes if required which can be plain or printed full colour if required.
Design services for your campaign
We tend not to get involved with the design too much as we specialise in printing and delivery services so it would be recommended that you use a local designer who can design print material for your leaflet design which will be used for your campaign.
Leaflet delivery services with GPS tracking
We have and still do provide GPS tracking with some of our leaflet deliveries services however there are too many issues that we have come across over the years to keep this service in place as standard.
Due to the large number of leaflet distributors we have in the UK, we can’t provide them with special tracking devices, so we use Map My Run. This is an app by the Worldwide brand Under Armour and tracks by GPS.
The issue we face with that is the fact that it is on all day so, within 5 hours, it can drain a smartphone battery. Also, if the signal is poor, which is surpassingly the case in many places in the UK, we can’t accurately track it.
Return on investment for letterbox marketing
The return on investment for flyer and leaflet letterbox marketing is said to be one of the best for any marketing channel, both digital and out of home marketing (OOH).
The return on investment is hard to understand as there are too many variables to take into account. For example, if you deliver 20,000 leaflets promoting a garden landscaping business in spring, then this will probably provide a better ROI than if you delivered 20,000 on 22nd December.
It does, however, if you get the right message to provide a fantastic return and much of this is due to the timing, message or offer and the look/design of the leaflet that’s put through the potential customer’s postbox.
Who uses leaflet delivery services?
Any business that is looking to promote their goods or services at a large scale and low cost use this advertising method as well as councils and Government bodies. Sometimes we get the odd personal customer too who might want to find their lost pet!
Estate agents are known to use leaflet deliveries regularly as they try to onboard new home sellers and get people interested in new properties in their local area. Charities and non-profit organisations are also well known to use blanket distributions and mail fulfilment services alike.
