How are our Postage Rates so cheap?

Charges for sending post within the UK are calculated on size and weight of the item, known as Pricing in Proportion.

The market has now opened up to postal operators, other than the Royal Mail, to collect and distribute post. These other operators known as Downstream Access providers, or DSAs, and can provide a discounted service. However, they cannot offer First Class or Next Day services.

All postal operators rely on Mailing companies to sort post into geographical areas to speed up delivery. Each company has different software and sorting criteria – however we have all the software and contracts available to us. This sorting of data is known as Mailsorting.

Because of this we are eligible for a postage discount and as your mailing partner we pass on this reduction to you, giving you cheaper than Royal Mail postal rates.

There are many other discounted rates which are designed to help those new to Direct Mail with their early campaigns. Additionally there are discounts offered for those packs which have less impact on the environment and can be easily recycled.

The more you mail the more savings you’ll receive – volume related discounts are available just ask us for details.

The publishing sector has its own range of discounts which are designed to encourage subscription mailings for magazines – these are specific to the title being mailed and are higher than standard volume discounts.

It is normal for the postal charges to increase in April of each year so there is often a surge of business in March so plan ahead to avoid unnecessary additional cost!

* the above rates are subject to quality of data as well as the final size and weight of the items and must meet certain criteria
