What is a Lettershop?
While searching for a high volume direct mail company you may keep seeing the term – Lettershop. Most people don’t know what lettershop services are or what they can do for them.
A lettershop is an industry term that usually references a company that prints, organizes and ships large volume mailings. Most letteshops offer additional services such as graphic design, copywriting, mailing list services and fulfillment services. They will have specialized equipment that will allow mailing pieces to be machine folded, sorted and placed into envelopes. Along with this will be services to personalize the letters with little touches such as what appears to be a real stamp, printing that looks like someone hand addressed the envelope and automatically seal and organize the envelopes for quick delivery by the United States Postal Service.
One of the benefits of using a full service lettershop is commingling of your mailing pieces. Commingling is when the lettershop, for the purposes of saving money with the USPS, will combine your mailing pieces with other companies mailing pieces, sort them into the appropriate codes and then receive a volume discount from the USPS. This discount is greater than what a single company would normally receive. This can be a great savings – up to $50 per 1000 pieces of mail.
