Direct Mail folding, although it seems simple, is an important part of the direct mail preparation process. If the direct mail piece is not folded properly, it will cause problems in the next part of the automated process. Usually, after your direct mail piece is folded, it will be sent to a different machine – tabber, addresser, inserter, stamping machine, meter, etc. It is important for a direct mail piece to be folded straight and tight before it reaches the next machine to prevent jams which could destroy materials.
We can fold at speeds of up to 23,000 pieces per hour, per machine!
Paper can be folded down from very large sizes.
Some examples of this are:
Folding 11 x 17 down to 8.5 x 5.5
Folding 8.5 x 11 to letter size 3.67 x 8.5
We also offer pressure seal folding to create those cool perforated snap mailers! For more information on direct mail folding prices and turn around times, check out our direct mail prices page or contact The Mailing House.
