Polywrapping Services

Some of the best known publications are polywrapped and mailed by Asendia. With Sitma polywrapping lines - famous for their reliability - we can polywrap almost any mailing, from large catalogue runs to niche magazines.

 As well as competitive polywrapping prices we offer a lot of flexibility; inserting up to 6 items per pack and providing inkjet addressing or carrier sheet printing. Our ISO accreditations illustrate our quality standards and commitment to the environment too.

Whether you need to polywrap 500 magazines or hundreds of thousands of catalogues, contact Asendia for a quote.

We can maximise your postage savings

Our mailing house can polywrap and sort your mailing to be directly injected into the Royal Mail network or an alternative UK postal service, to achieve maximum postage discounts. And we are owned by La Poste and Swiss Post, so we are experts for international mailings. We have saved some customers £1000's in postage alone!

What can we polywrap?

Most of our polywrapping customers are publishers, but we do handle a variety of mailings; for UK and international delivery. We polywrap some very well-known publications and others that are not so famous, but equally important to us.

Our customers range from small businesses to media groups with many titles who require a lot of flexibility and capacity as well as competitive prices..

Carrier-sheets or inkjet addressing

We understand that some mailings are no-frills, and inkjet addressing is a fantastic and cost effective addressing option.

For customers that want to include a carrier sheet, we offer black or colour laser printing options that can – if required – print much more than just a name and address.

'Greener' polywrapping

Polywrapping has a bad reputation, in these times where people are quite rightfully more environmentally conscious. However the polywrapping industry has moved on a lot on recent years an their are more environmentally friendly polywraps now available.

We can source your polywrap film for you - with trade discounts - and there are a number of options:

Starch-based polywrap
A thermoplastic made of starch from maize, potato wheat and other similar resources. In household situations, it may take up to 2 years for the packaging to fully degrade.

Polylactide Acide ( PLA )
A thermoplastic made through a bacterial fermentation. Does not decompose quickly in soil or water; however, it degrades quicker with the help of acid.

A polymer derived from fossil fuels, sometimes produced by also combining starch with the polymer. This is a biodegradable and compostable material.

Plastic wrap is banned in France
The French Anti-Waste Law makes it illegal to send mail wrapped in plastic in France, so we recommend starch-based wrap or paper envelopes. Read more.
