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:

  • Magazines
  • Journals
  • Catalogues
  • Direct mail
  • Newspapers
  • Reports

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.

Inkjet addressing or carrier-sheets

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.

Polybagging, an alternative to polywrapping

We have a team of people that work on jobs not suitable for polywrapping machines.

Polybagging by hand is a solution for jobs that cannot be run on the polywrapping line, but where the benefits of polythene are required. We have a team that handle jobs like this, working to ISO 9001 standards, and providing an excellent option for:

  • Low volume jobs where it's not cost-effective to set up a polywrapping machine
  • Jobs using non-machinable polythene wrap
  • Mailings that are not uniform
  • Mailings that are bumpy‘ i.e. contain merchandise that cannot be covermounted on a polywrapping machine

Benefits of polywrapping

  • Polywrapping is a fast and low cost way to enclose and catalogues, magazines or brochures
  • Cheaper and lighter than an equivalent paper envelope so can reduce your postage costs when weight is an issue
  • Multiple inserts can be added in loose with the magazine or brochure; more than in an envelope
  • Inserts can be selectively inserted so you can target inserts to specific audiences
  • Two addressing options with inkjetting or carrier sheets; providing options for different needs and budgets
  • We can sort and bag your mailing straight off the polywrapping line ready for distribution in the UK or worldwide
  • Polywrap can be clear, printed or opaque depending on your requirements. It’s possible to create some fantastic designs
  • Your contents should arrive in excellent condition as the polywrapping keeps them clean and dry as they go through the postal system
