When planning a mailing, keep the following in mind and do it like this: Pick a day you’d like your mailing piece to arrive in the recipient’s hands. (Count business days only.)
Turn-around time: Specifically regarding the mail preparation services here, our normal turn-around time for any mailing is 3 days (after all the parts of the mailing arrive). Note that most mailing houses take around a week. Any mailing that requires bindery or hand work adds time to that. Although each mailing may not require three full days, this period gives us the room to meet all our customers’ deadlines despite the many things that often happen here all at once.
Tight schedule: If you are reading this when it is too late to keep to this schedule, don’t worry! We’ll do our best to meet the deadline required by your event. Believe me, we are masters at pulling off the impossible.
List: In the middle of the preparation, make sure the mailing list is sent to us (or a new list is purchased) in time for us to work out what the postage will be and so you can get a postage check in our hands before mailing time. The list should get here before the printing. If there are any duplicates or bad addresses in the list this gives us sufficient time to correct those addresses and ensure your list squeaky clean!
That all said, we’ll get your mailing done as soon as we can and we will do our very best to meet your deadline.
