Direct Mail


Why Direct Mail Works

In today’s digital world, many businesses presume that direct mail marketing doesn’t return the same results as digital marketing strategies. However in a recent report from the DMA, it revealed that the average response rate for direct mail is over 4 times greater than that of email marketing. At FastAnt we know that direct mail is still relevant and effective, regardless of your business size. Let us show you how effective direct mail can be.

How we do Direct Mail

We start by listening to what you are trying to achieve and then we will build a proposal that will suit you based on a combination of lowest cost with maximum impact on receipt.

Our enclosing machines can insert over 8 items into an envelope in one cycle and with built-in cameras and intelligent software, multiple personalised items can be enclosed into the same envelope.

Large brochures and catalogues can be polywrapped and personalised inline using our solvent high quality inkjet system.

Data Health Check

We offer a free data health check that can identify major savings in postage costs by identifying individuals in your mailing list that should not be mailed.  This process can not only save you money on reduced postage, but also protect you from fines as a result of sending mail to those who have specifically registered to be excluded from marketing campaigns.



Data Security

FastAnt has achieved the ISO27001 data security standard for both the security of our computer systems and infrastructure, but also for how we manage and take care of our client’s data.
