Snapmail polywrapping services provide a cost-effective enclosing solution for your direct mail campaign

Polywrapping Solutions for Direct Mail Campaigns

Polywrapping is still considered to be one of the most cost effective and efficient direct mail options to enclose magazines, books, brochures and catalogues.

The Benefits of using Polywrapping for Direct Mail Campaigns

Polywrapping as a mailing solution offers a level of protection to the contents of your mailing as it passes through the postal system, and its dense nature protects against the elements. Polywrap is lightweight and versatile, keeping costs down at both the fulfilment stage – particularly if non-standard sized pieces are being mailed – and at the postage stage, where every extra gram can start to add up.

Polywrapping can also be a very effective marketing solution for your direct mail campaigns as using clear polywrapping helps your product make an instant impact and can raise brand awareness as the catalogue or magazine is already on display long before the mail pack is even opened, thereby increasing your direct mail return on investment (ROI).

Biodegradable Polywrapping

Environmentally friendly Polywrapping – the new viable option to polythene for direct mail campaigns:

Here at Snapmail we take environmental issues very seriously. As well as being ISO14001 (Environment Management) Accredited  we can now offer various types of biodegradable polywrap as well as standard polythene that can be recycled.
Contrary to popular belief, biodegradable or compostable polywrap cannot actually be recycled as it will start to break down once used. However, non-biodegradable polywrap can be recycled and used over and over again.

Advantages of Compostable Poly

  • It is made from plant-based, recycled materials and breaks down in a manner that is kinder to the environment than plastic when disposed of in the right environmental conditions
  • Compostable polywrapping reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill

Disadvantages of Compostable Poly

  • Longer lead times and a shorter shelf life
  • Expensive
  • Starch based poly has a milky appearance which does not comply with certain postal service discounts

Advantages of Biodegradable Poly

  • Bridgeable poly has agent added to the polyethene that speeds the process of degradation
  • Polywrap is clear and suitable for all mail services
  • More readily available and cuts down on lead times
  • More cost-effective alternative

Disadvantages of Biodegradable Poly

  • This product cannot be recycled and must be disposed of
  • Longer lead times and a shorter shelf life

Polybagging Services

Lastly, we can also cater for low volume direct mail campaigns that require polywrapping. For smaller, more bespoke mailings that require self-seal polybags we offer hand fulfilment services at very competitive rates. Clients who generally opt for this service mail promotional items such as USB sticks, mouse mats, pens etc.
