Online PR News – 31-August-2011 – – A new direct mail printing and fulfillment service has been launched to make sending a direct mail campaign easier and more affordable for small businesses.
Create and Post is a service which prints the senders mailing letter, inserts it into envelopes and then sends it using a service equivalent to Royal Mail 2nd class, all for just 5p more than the cost of a 2nd class stamp; 41p per letter (plus mailing set up fee).
The service achieves these discounts by using the latest digital printing technology and optimising the way that the postal system works to save cost and minimise workload.
The Create and Post service is aimed at a range of users who send mailings to either UK businesses or consumers as part of a direct marketing campaign.
The benefits for small businesses in particular are numerous. Create and Post saves users having to print out their mailings in house saving money on consumables such as printer ink, envelopes and printed letterheads. The service also saves time on setting up complex mail merges and filling envelopes by hand.
Small mailings are also cheaper with Create and Post as there is no minimum order, unlike mailing houses which often apply a minimum charge of handling 1000 items.
As another benefit of the service, Create and Post provides a manual check and send service to help users set up their mailing and ensure that they are happy before sending.
Finally, Create and Post also offers a reliable supply of mailing lists for marketing campaigns or cleaning the clients own list before sending. The service is provided by Selectabase, a long-established independent supplier of mailing lists and data cleansing service to small businesses.
A spokesperson for Selectabase commented on the launch of the service by saying that Create and Post is a “natural extension of our mailing list brands like Prospect Download, Birthday Mailings and New B2B as well our data cleansing services like Easy Check, and has been very much launched in response to customer demand.”
