With their experienced and dedicated project managers, they can advise on design, construction, trends, methods, processes and costs, helping and supporting you to reach your ideal audience with a personalised piece of mail that will build relationships and engage your customer on a personal level.  After all, you cannot get closer to your perfect client than being in their hand.

Mail is remembered more and a message that is remembered is more likely to inspire action, influence decision making and purchase intent.  Another trait is that mail will boost digital interaction with your client and drives readers to websites and social media channels.  Moreover, when a direct mail piece is sent out before a social media campaign, the viewer is primed to associate and remember more. Mail clearly has a strong interaction with other channels, which means it could help to boost overall campaign effectiveness.

“But what about the environment?  Doesn’t direct mail destroy rainforests and use excessive water?” Well, it is time to bust those myths.  Print and paper is a highly sustainable form of communication and should be considered a valuable addition to your marketing mix.  Yes, its production does use a lot of water but 93% is returned to the environment after extensive treatment.  Furthermore, paper is made from wood, a totally renewable resource and Forest Certification ensures wood comes from well managed forests whilst responsible paper production ensures healthy forests.

Blue Print Direct Mail offers a comprehensive range of direct mail services, using on-site facilities, as well as working in close partnership with trusted and audited external suppliers to deliver immaculate campaigns from just 1 record to a million records (bulk mailings).
