Direct mail services for Housing Associations

In News by Alan Horton

Housing associations have large amounts of information to distribute about services and accommodation to clients and service providers. It’s likely that you’ll have a mixture of brochures, leaflets and advertising materials which you will need folded and bundled into a direct marketing mailshot. Often such material can be bulky and difficult to package easily. However, with our advanced folding and packaging systems here at bakergoodchild we have the answer.

Automated Mail Folding

There are a variety of ways which leaflets, brochures and marketing materials can be folded and prepared for direct mail shots. At bakergoodchild, we have the most modern machinery available in the direct mail industry to ensure that your leaflets, brochures, and marketing materials are folded professionally and arrive with your target audience in pristine condition.

We can concertina your marketing materials and inserts for easy folding ensuring no degradation in quality for your readership. Our quality machinery ensures that your inserts are folded neatly and retain their high quality to reflect the quality services you offer. Folding also saves you money as your mail inserts can fit into a smaller envelope to reduce the costs of mailing.

Polythene wrapping

Quite often mail inserts can include single double-sided leaflets, brochures and a variety of other printed marketing materials. At bakergoodchild we can print all marketing materials and brochures and all inserts can then be bundled and neatly wrapped in polythene. Our electric guillotine plant and machinery can cut between 12,000 and 15,000 sheets per hour, so no matter how big your mailshot, we can handle it and get it out to your mailing list on time.

As a housing association, your information is time critical and information must be efficiently mailed to your tenants and service providers. Often information must be disseminated urgently to ensure that tenants are aware of housing risks, hazards or rights, for example in the case of fire safety. In the vast majority of cases, we can print in-house or in certain scenarios can print offsite to ensure you receive the best printing services for your needs. Our highly skilled and trained staff will be able to advise you on how to maximise your direct mailing campaign and prepare your envelopes for you automatically.
