custom mailer

dare to be different

A custom, or self mailer, is a postal item without an envelope.

With glue, folds and a little ingenuity, a mailing piece is printed, personalised and finished so the document does not require an external carrier.

Self mailers are an effective communication tool, replacing the traditional direct marketing pack including a brochure, letter, return envelope and outer carrier.

On design alone, even non-personalised self mailers attract more attention and gain a better response rate.

It’s time to make your postage dollar really count.

what can it do?

Here are some of the unique features that can be produced effeciently on a flexomailer.


No need to include a return envelope or a response mechanism, self mailers are all these components rolled into one.
