Direct mail projects can be intricate, especially when mailing larger pieces. Informational magazines, newsletters, newspapers and books are all examples of Pubmail-friendly products. While heftier multi-page direct mailers can also be mailed as parcels and Personalized Mail, Canada Post’s Pubmail stream provides cheaper specialized alternatives. If your current or upcoming non-promotional publication gets mailed within Canada, at least twice a year, with minimum quantities of 500 pieces per mailing, then Pubmail is surely right for you. Since Pubmail rates depend on each direct mail product and its destination, please call Troi Mailing Services to start setting up your Publications Mail Agreement number. Our commercial print division Timeline Printing will also advise on Pubmail design tactics for greater response and cheaper postage rates.
