Imagine mail without the envelope. That’s essentially a self-mailer, a folded piece of literature that has all the information it needs within itself. No need for extra bits of loose paper when they can all be self-contained and folded perfectly into a convenient self-mailing piece. The process starts with a flat printed sheet which is then run through a specialised machine that can fold, glue, perforate, time cut and more all with great accuracy and speed to produce the finished self-mailer. Which is then ready to be mailed out without the need of an envelope.
They can be used for many situations other than just mailing. For example, they can be used as application forms, charity reply forms, inserts in magazines and so much more.

Ways self-mailers can benefit you

Charity Events

Self-mailers are perfect for when you need to send out a large run of mailers in a cost-effective way. They can be set up as a simple fold out brochure for your supporters to read through with a detachable response form. Our machine can create perforations making the form easy to tear away and it can also attach glue strips allowing the form to be self-mailed back to you.

Loyalty Cards

A great example of self-mailers that aren't mailed out is loyalty cards. They can be found in almost any retail store and can be efficiently produced by our self-mailer machine. The machine can place down semi-permanent drops of glue to attach the card to a booklet whilst still being easy to be removed by a customer.

2-Way Mailers

With 2-way mailers you can set up a letter to be sent and returned all in the one go. Our self-mailer technology can create score lines and add strips of glue so the receiver can fold up their response and use the glue to reseal the letter. It will already have postage information printed onto the letter turning the form into its very own envelope.

Application Forms

Use self-mailer technology to quickly get customers and clients to sign up without having an overload of loose sheets. simply create a sheet of paper that includes valuable information for them to keep and then using perforations have a tear-away section for them to fill out and you to collect.
