Mailing House Services

Services to Expect from a Mailing House

In News by Alan Horton

There are many Mailing Houses in the UK, and it can sometimes be hard deciding where to look or who to trust! As a Mailing House that has been around for more than two decades, we like to think that we know what we’re doing over here at bakergoodchild.

To help explain a bit more about services bakergoodchild offer, we have laid out a short guide on what you should expect when it comes to professional Mailing House services.

What is a Mailing House?

A Mailing House is a business (it’s not a house!) that prepares direct mail to be sent both locally, nationally, and internationally. As well as being able to take advantage of cheaper mailing rates than an individual would be able to, Mailing Houses also provide a whole host of other services too.

It is generally recommended to use a Mailing House when you have a large quantity of direct mail or other national or international post to send.

What services can a Mailing House perform?

The name ‘Mailing House’ isn’t just misleading in terms of us not being a house, but the term mailing can also be misleading as a Mailing House performs many more functions than just mailing. Here are some services that you can expect from a Mailing House:

Planning and printing

A Mailing House, drawing on their experience and expertise, can help you by planning and preparing your direct mail or mailshot campaign. This includes discussing the best form of mail to use, how to take advantage of the various routes on offer to you, and then the eventual printing of your mail.


You can also rely on Mailing House services to help you personalise your direct mail campaign. 98% of people who receive direct mail have said that they prefer this mail being personalised. This means that personalisation can be the make or break factor for your campaign, and a Mailing House knows all of the tips and tricks when it comes to adding that personal touch.


Once you’ve planned your postage campaign, personalised it and printed it, a Mailing House can also help with the packaging too. This involves tasks such as polywrapping and sealing. This allows a Mailing House to offer you an all-round service, helping from start to finish.

Direct mail

Direct mail campaigns are one of the best ways to reach new customers and score new business. A good Mailing House service will be able to help you open up new business opportunities around the world.

UK & International Postage

Sending your mail, both in the UK and internationally, through a Mailing House can help you save on costs, as well as the stress of organising everything yourself! Mailing Houses make use of relationships with mailing partners around the world; something that individuals don’t have access too.
