Bio-poly Wrapping

One of the most popular plastic alternatives used in direct mail is potato starch. Potato starch can be used to print marketing messages and act as an alternative wrapping to plastic when sending your direct mail.

The great thing about potato starch products is they are 100% recyclable, even biodegradable within your home compost bin. Being certified it boasts good eco-credentials.

This approach ensures your direct mail campaign is as eco-friendly as possible at every stage of the process, and not just when your leaflets, postcards, or brochures are recycled. With the right set up and advice it’s possible to still achieve the best postal rates.

  • 100% compostable
  • Light weight
  • Translucent
  • Vegetable ink printed

Naked Mailing

Naked Mailing could be the perfect solution for your next Direct Marketing campaign.

Being an excellently cost effective way to Direct Mail , adding your recipients name and address details by inkjetting onto the rear cover of the catalogue, allowing them to be then handed over to the postal network without the need of any additional materials. We have supported many of our clients transition to this format saving themselves money on production and postal costs.

We are helping more and more of our clients take advantage of this option – saving themselves money on production and postal costs.
