Sometimes it is necessary for companies to send out unfolded A4 mail items. However wherever possible this type of mail should be folded. This allows the mail to go out in a C5 envelope and therefore be charged at the cheaper standard letter rate.
For franked mail, the saving per item is 12p for first class mail and 13p for second class mail. This may not sound like a hill of beans but week by week the savings mount and your company will end up saving £1000s a year.
This cost saving would need to be offset by the labour cost and the tedium of folding the letters.
By using a postal folder inserter this job can be done at the touch of a button. At FP-IMS we have seen a dramatic rise in the number of businesses leasing this type of machine. Three years ago folders inserters were very much a niche product used by more specialist companies. Now the combination of the Royal Mail PiP price changes and the lower cost of the machines have made the folder inserter an integral part of many mailrooms.
If you would like to know more about folder inserter machines you can visit the main FP-IMS website which has details about the range of machines and leasing costs. Alternatively you can contact us and we will be happy to help you.
