Benefits of Mail House Services
When compiling your next mail marketing campaign, consider the cost savings by processing you articles in a bulk mail format. When there are more than 300 letters bar-coded, a bulk mail discount can be offered through Australia Post. This can often offset some of the cost of outsourcing your entire mail campaign. Handline’s mail house can process your articles from a spread sheet all the way to printed papers, sent to your nominated addresses.
We’ve worked with all sectors and provide a premium service for all accounts which include government, councils, retail, services and mining sectors. As a premium mail house service provider and a Australia Post bulk mail partner, we adhere to strict guidelines regarding processes and privacy in line with government level standard as our minimum. Although we specialise in providing mail house services in Australia, we have the infrastructure and technical capability to successfully carry out campaigns worldwide at a competitive rate.
Here at Handline, our services follow a systematic approach with the ability to complete any mailing campaign from start to finish. This involves data processing, printing, folding, inserting & lodge with Aust Post. Campaigns can be implemented in 2-3 working days from beginning to completion, depending on the campaign criteria and location.
Variable Data Processing & Printing
Once all the data, artwork or material is received by us, we then review the data and collaborate closely with the client to ensure the information being distributed is up to your exact specifications. Data alterations can easily be undertaken; as we have state of the art programs and infrastructure to cater to your needs.
Changes in variable data printing from piece to piece within the same print run can be customised to specific messages to each individual or client. We can help you with everything, from simple mail merge documents to highly personalised variable messages and images as well as full-colour direct mail campaigns.
Any data given to us is also deleted after each campaign, to ensure privacy and personal information is not passed on. Alternatively, we can return data to you upon request so you can optimise the list for future campaigns.
Handline has some very impressive machinery, which not only folds your articles but can insert them into envelopes with a press of a button. When you need to insert items into envelopes, Handline has the perfect solution. Our 6 station high speed inserters can collate and insert up to 6 items at one time. This enables us to process your articles on very tight deadlines.
If your items are not able to be inserted by machine, our well trained and experienced staff will insert them by hand insuring all names and addresses match with the item inserted.
Match mail is sometimes required to ensure your clients name matches the envelope; this is made easy with over 30 staff to have your products processed quickly and efficiently.
When it comes to delivery and making sure your material is recieved, Handline partners with Australia post to guarantee your message is delivered to your target audience.
