Direct mail

If you’ve got the data, we can handle it


Do you have a direct mail to send out?

Send us your data and we’ll do everything else for you. We start by sorting your data, suppressing any files that aren’t required and then we’ll do the mail merge. We’ll print the campaign and can provide hand fulfilment of envelopes or work alongside a mailing house. Whether it’s a small one-off campaign or a regular mass mailing we can help you maximise your response rates with personalised direct mail.

It might be that you want to try out an idea to test a potential campaign – we can help with that too with single copy or short-run printing. We’re here to make sure that every aspect of your campaign is optimised, maximised and delivered.

At Galloways we’re more than just a printer.

Types of direct mail

You can be sure that the type of direct mail you choose will have an impact on your marketing strategy. With so many possibilities available, there’s no perfect fit for every business – but with some research and creativity we’ll find something great!

By selecting the format that works best for your business, you’ll attract attention, increase sales, and build customer relationships. Here’s a look at some of the most popular types of direct marketing mail:


The simplest and most popular type of direct mail. They are easy to design and print and can be sent out quickly. Postcards can be used for a variety of purposes, such as announcements, invitations, thank you notes, and sales promotions.


Letters are a more formal type of direct mail. Letters allow you to include more information than a postcard and can be enveloped and personalised to the recipient. Enveloped letters create anticipation and the perception the information is valuable and important.


Newsletter mailings are a great way to keep your customers updated on your latest news and products. Galloways can send out your newsletter mailings out monthly, quarterly, or as often as you like.
