How can Businesses avoid the soaring mailing costs?

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

The cost of sending Business marketing items and letters through the post in the UK is soaring. The 30% price rise in UK first-class stamps, and 39% rise for second-class, mark the biggest annual increase in percentage terms since 1975. Ten years ago, a first-class stamp cost only 27p, and a second-class cost only 19p.

Organizations who send large amount of printed material via the post office are in for a nasty shock as the rise in the costs hits their bottom line. Now, more than ever is the time to consider sending marketing and information messages via email. Katies Cards offer corporate entities to opportunity to send creative, entertaining Corporate Ecards, E-messages or viral games to their clients, customers and staff at a fraction of the cost of their printed counterparts.

The cost of 12 first class stamps will now be £7.20 which is the same as a 12 month subscription to katiescards.com. More than ever it makes sense to make the move to sending Ecards. Adding the cost of the printed cards, to sending only 12 greeting cards through the post, in one year will now cost almost £40, whereas a 12 month subscription to katiescards.com is £7.50, but you are then able to send unlimited Ecards to all your family and friends for a whole year.
