With a wholesale Royal Mail account, we can offer competitive rates for mailing and in certain instances there can be further incentives offered by Royal Mail to reduce costs even further. PM Solutions work very closely with all of the big mailing providers, including Royal Mail, UK Mail, Whistl and DX, maintaining regular communications to ensure that we are up to date with all services that they provide. If you prefer to mail on your own mailing account, we can arrange this for you too. Just contact us for more information.

Polywrapping up to A4 with multi-insertion
Polywrapping is one of the most efficient options to enclose and post catalogues, brochures, books or magazines.

Alternatively, we can offer electronic “soft-sorting” of your letters prior to insertion, offering more flexibility on format. Minimum quantities for mail sorting are 4,000 items for Letters and 1,000 items for Large Letters.
