What Is A Mailing House?

A mailing house is simply a company that prepares and organises large scale dispatch of letters, packets and parcels for Royal Mail to deliver.

Not only will a good mail house prepare the mail, but they will also offer printing, data management and bulk postage rates for clients.

Coming to The Direct Mail Company means your business will benefit from an integrated approach, we can provide your business with printing, mailing and bulk postage discount.

UK Mailing houses – How do they work?

When sending direct marketing campaigns or even transactional mail, we make it as simple as possible for our clients.

Our print and mailing services are perfect for mail campaigns to either promote your products or services and for invoice mailing solutions and other transactional mail pieces.

It is as simple as you providing us with your data in Excel or as a CSV file, along with your artwork for the letter or postcard. We then mail merge the data on to the print and process the mail.

If you opt for an A4 letter that is folded and enclosed into a C5 envelope, this would be a simple mailing for us as we can enclose at 4,000 per hour.

We can provide standard letters, large letters and magazine paper wrap mailings – pretty much anything you can post; we can fulfil.

A mailing house is different to a door drop company as we use personalised direct mail services as apposed to unaddressed mail that you would blanket drop say 10,000 homes in Manchester.

We can provide a range of design services for your mail and marketing campaign with our in house designers. Also, we provide what we think is the best customer service around in the UK mail industry.
