Featured Insights

The Importance of High-Quality Direct Mail Printing

Mail campaigns remain among the most powerful ways to communicate with prospective and existing customers. Evocative, targeted and personalised direct mail often leaves a more meaningful, lasting impression on people than short-lived digital adverts, while remaining a cost-effective part of an overall marketing mix.

But achieving this strong engagement and responsiveness depends on quality print finishing. Any inconsistencies, blurriness or misalignment can quickly discourage customers and hurt the legitimacy of your brand in their eyes. With the standard for digital printing and litho printing higher than ever before, there is no excuse for a poor print job.

With DM360 Direct Mail, the finish of your printed items is never called into question. Our decades of experience as a mailing house means we offer a full range of lithographic and digital print services to support your campaigns at any scale or complexity.

Direct Mail Printing Services: Frequently Asked Questions

What is digital printing and lithographic printing?

There are two primary types of printing processes – digital printing and lithographic (offset) printing.

Digital printing, unlike traditional printing methods, does not require printing plates. Instead, a digital printer presses the image directly onto the intended item. This enables printed communications to be produced more efficiently.

Lithographic or offset printing operates on the principle that ink and water don’t mix. Art and text are put on thin metal plates dampened by water and ink by rollers on a printing press. The oil-based ink adheres to the image area, while the water bonds to the non-image area. The ink is then transferred onto paper via a rubber cylinder.

Lithographic printing is still considered to produce clearer, more defined results, but digital print quality is improving every year. Due to this, people who are looking for highly detailed pictures and rich colours would typically lean towards the lithographic method.

What is print finishing?

Print finishing refers to the actions you can perform on your printed materials once the ink has dried on them. This incorporates numerous techniques to enhance the appearance of your prints, or to protect them from damage or wear and tear, including:

  • Lamination
  • Foil blocking
  • Varnishing
  • Embossing
  • Debossing
  • Die-cutting

What types of direct mail printing can you provide?

As we can offer both state-of-the-art digital and lithographic print, we can offer our print services across the entire spectrum of direct mail. The types of printed materials you can create are almost endless, but some of the options we regularly handle include:

  • Brochures
  • Magazines
  • Bespoke mail items

Can you manage all print sizes in the UK?

Yes, our print and post service can handle the preparation and delivery of all sizes and formats of paper, from small postcards through to large posters.

How much does direct mail printing cost?

Our printing and mail service is completely bespoke, and the costs of your request will depend on a range of factors:

  • How many items you need printed
  • The format of the items being printed (is it a one-sided postcard or 30-page brochure?)
  • The size of the items being printed
  • Whether it requires a digital or lithographic printer
  • When you need your items produced

With DM360, we are always forthcoming about the costs you can expect for any request you make from us. Get in touch using the form below and we’ll be happy to discuss your requirements.
