Bulk Mail Service Tip #5 – Print Enough

Bad Kissingen Germany

Remember to provide your bulk mail service with enough mail pieces to cover your mailing.

If your list is 512 do not give them 500 pieces. 

Print a little over so your bulk mail service has one for their file, one or two for setup and a couple for spoils.

Have a wonder-filled day,

Bulk Mail Service Tip #2 – Aqueous Coating

Bulk Mail Tip:

Aqueous coating and inkjet addressing are like oil and water, they just don’t mix.  As demonstrated in these  pictures, the ink on a coated mail piece can be virtually wiped clean.

Aqueous or UV coating,  is a varnish like finish applied by a printer at the end of the printing process. There are a couple of products on the market that claim to print on coated paper,  but I have not found one that combines good quality and tolerable drying time.

When placing your print order, request no coating on the address side or a “knock-out” where the address goes.

As a last resort, we can address your mail with self-adhesive labels, but it does not have the professional look that your mail piece deserves.
