Featured Insights

Why Do We Offer Both Machine and Hand Fulfilment Services?

There are endless possibilities of what you could send to customers as part of a mail marketing campaign. While many strictly associate direct mail with printed materials, there is so much more that can be sent through this channel. For instance, we’ve worked with numerous charities to deliver T-shirts and other packaged items ahead of fundraising campaigns.

Due to the wide range of potential direct mail materials, from compact postcards and letters to more complex brochures, booklets and bespoke items, our mailing fulfilment service is set up for every eventuality. Regardless of the scale or intricacy of the campaign, our mailing house is perfectly positioned to handle your request in the most appropriate and cost-effective way possible.

Our high-speed fulfilment machines enclose hundreds of thousands of envelopes per day, so we have the facilities and capabilities to rapidly fulfil any scale of campaign. Whether you are working with C6, C4 or anywhere in between, we can take care of these for you.

Direct Mail Machine & Hand Fulfilment: Frequently Asked Questions

What is direct mail fulfilment?

Mailing fulfilment services cover all stages required to get your direct mail campaigns ready for collection and delivery. This could involve folding up letters and postcards into envelopes, to wrapping and boxing larger bespoke items.

Typical fulfilment stages a mailing house will offer include:

  • Automated collation – feeding multiple inserts into envelopes at high speed
  • Automated folding – accordion, roll-fold, slit & nest and other folding options
  • Envelope closing – automated envelope sealing and sorting
  • Polywrapping and paper wrapping – sealing items with a variety of different wrappers
  • Bundling and packaging – sealing items in boxes and other packages for delivery

With DM360, we can provide all of these services and more in-house via our Bracknell and Richmond offices. Our primary aim is to provide fast turnaround of materials at cost-effective prices, so that your items are ready to be posted as soon as you need them.

Why would I need to use hand fulfilment for direct mail?

While machinery is ideal for fulfilling thousands of bulk, printed items fast and cost-effectively, there will always be lumpy mail campaigns where preparing items by hand is more suitable and productive. But, it requires accuracy, consistency and speed to ensure that items are prepared to exceptional standards, often to strict deadlines.

That’s why Lbox has brought together a strong team of hand fulfilment professionals, who work diligently to ensure your specific needs are met time and again. We also source a wide range of specialist products and packaging to support their efforts, meaning that this approach is handled as efficiently and capably as possible.

How much do our mail fulfilment services cost?

Our mail fulfilment services will vary from project to project, and are based on a variety of factors:

  • Whether your campaign requires machine fulfilment, hand fulfilment, or both
  • The size and scale of your items, particularly in regards to hand fulfilment
  • How many items you need fulfilled for your campaign
  • What time frame you need your items prepared by

As your fulfilment partner we are always transparent with you about the costs you can expect based on your mail-pieces, parameters and expectations. You can get in touch with us using the form below to talk through your requirements.

Do you offer sustainable options for wrapping and packaging?

At Lbox, we recognise the commitment we have to the environment around us. That is why we take actions as a company to offset our environmental impact, and work towards a better, more ethical tomorrow. To do this:

  • We plant two trees for every job we complete

  • We work with The Rainforest Trust to protect endangered species and habitats

  • We offset our emissions with Ecologi, facilitating climate positive activities

How does direct mail fulfilment work?

Once your mail items are printed, they need to get in the hands of your customers as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

Our DM360 Machine & Hand Fulfilment Service works to meet your deadlines, inserting, packing and sealing your letters, flyers and brochures automatically – ensuring your promotion is ready for dispatch.

For more complex campaigns with bulkier mail items, our professional hand fulfilment team offers a more personal touch. From pens to t-shirts, we can fulfil any campaign with relentless efficiency and reliable consistency.

What are the different types of direct mail fulfilment services?

At Lbox, we offer two distinct fulfilment services. For bulk mail items that fit in a C4 to C6 envelope, we offer precise, accurate and highly efficient machine fulfilment.

When larger mail pieces need to be sent, such as chocolates and jiffy bags, our professional hand fulfilment team enclose, pack and wrap items of any size with total consistency and attention to detail.

How long does direct mail fulfilment take?

This will depend from project to project, and will be influenced by the nature of the items you need to send, and how many pieces you need prepared.

We believe in total transparency at every stage, which is why we’ll provide you with time estimates based on the needs of your promotion. Get in touch or fill out the form below to discuss your requirements.
