Postage Stamps VS Hybrid Mail
Why Postage Stamps are so Good
If your business uses postage stamps to post your mail, you're likely using them because they are such a simple solution to sending out small volumes of mail. The versatility of stamps is undoubtedly their biggest strength. However, if you're sending lots of mail, there are much more cost-effective and time-efficient solutions available from a Mailing House, namely Hybrid Mail and Direct Mail. This page will highlight the benefits and demonstrate your potential cost savings to save time and money on your business post.
Will a Mailing House Save You Money?
More than likely! Unless you're sending tiny quantities of mail each week (less than 50), outsourcing all your postage will save you significant money. Not only can a Mailing House post your mail at discounted rates, but it takes care of the data, design, print, personalisation and enclosure too. Therefore, your business will save time as well as money.
Hybrid Mail Service
To replace using postage stamps and all this entails (printing, folding, placing into envelopes, glueing, sticking on a stamp, walking to the post box, etc.), we recommend our Hybrid Mail service.
What is Hybrid Mail?
Hybrid Mail enables you to print and post your letters and postcards directly from your computer, anywhere, anytime. Once you have chosen what you would like to print and the list you would like to send it to, simply select the 'Hybrid Mail Print' option as your printer, and we do the rest! Daily at 3 pm, we download your documents to process, print, enclose and post. Our software and hardware does everything, all for less than the price of a stamp, and in a fraction of the time! Typically, the optimum quantity range is between 10 and 1,000 - beyond this, our Direct Mail service often becomes more cost-effective.
Hybrid Mail Savings
We have created a Savings Calculator to identify the tangible savings Hybrid Mail can save compared with franking, OBA, and postage stamps. Please use the Savings Calculator and see the additional savings your business can make on capital investments (such as printers), time, space and homeworker costs.
