If you are getting your leaflets printed elsewhere and booking our distribution only service, then you will need to deliver your leaflets to a Royal Mail Walk Bundling Centre (WBC). Royal Mail can also collect them from you. To get a quote for their collection service, please get in touch with us here.
Once you have completed your order, your very own account manager will be in touch with all the instructions you need via email including packing instructions, delivery address’s and deadlines.
For those who like to be pre organised, we have created this handy blog post on how to prepare and send your leaflets to the WBC’s.
Packing your leaflets
Royal Mail have strict packing rules in order to comply with their health and safety requirements. We have created an easy checklist below to make sure your leaflets are packed accordingly:
Items must be neatly and securely packed
When packing your leaflets, they must either be in a bundle or a box. If being bundled then these must be cross strapped as seen here >
Maximum box weight
If boxing your leaflets, these must weigh no more than 10kg per box
Maximum bundle weight
If you are bundling your items, these must weigh no more than 6.4kg
Maximum bundle quantity
If you are bundling your leaflets, do not exceed more than 500 leaflets per bundle
If packing your leaflets in boxes, each box must have the same quantity. For example, if you have 10,000 leaflets and 20 boxes, they must have 500 in each
All boxes and bundles must have the relevant labels. Your account manager will send you these to print and attach.
Week commencing date
If your campaign is running across more than one week, each box or bundle must have a single week commencing date on the label
Sending your leaflets
When sending your leaflets, there are some important checks to make to ensure your campaign goes out on time and with no added costs.
All your leaflets need to be delivered to the supplied delivery addresses at least 10 days in advance of your distribution date and can be delivered as early as 18 days in advance.
The earlier you hand over your items the better. This means we have a longer period to check your items over and, if there are any issues, to help you put these right before your distribution date.
Deadlines are subject to change due to bank holiday periods. We ask that you ensure you use the full delivery instructions provided by your account manager once you have completed your booking.
It is also important to have your courier complete a proof of delivery (POD) and to have this signed by Royal Mail on delivery. You will be sent a POD with your delivery instructions on completion of your booking. The POD will look something like this:
Although there are a lot of rules for Royal Mail distributions, your dedicated account manager can help you with each step of the booking and delivery process. If you have any questions then please do visit the contact us page where you can send an enquiry, email us or call us directly.
