We will need to get Artwork Approval from Royal Mail the first time
For first time orders (with a new licence number) the artwork proof must be sent to Royal Mail for sign-off and approval - whether creating the design yourself with our Template Design Editor or supplying your indicia for us to set up.
To speed up the process and, more importantly, make things easier for you, we'll send the artwork to the Royal Mail on your behalf to get "Copy Approval" the first time you're getting them printed. Once approved, we will then send it to production to be printed.
If you're supplying your own hi-res PDF artwork that you have previously used we can bypass the approval stage (as the artwork would have already been approved) and can proceed straight to production.

What is a PPI Prepaid Envelope?
PPI prepaid envelopes ('Postage Paid Impression' or "Printed Post Impression") are a convenient pre-printed alternative to using stamps or franking machines for companies who have medium to high volumes of post being sent out.
These pre paid envelopes from various carriers including Royal Mail, include a pre-paid postage mark or impression that allows the company to pay for the postage cost in advance, usually at a big discount over using stamps or a franking machine.
PPI is perfect for posting out Letters or Large oversize Letters such as C4.
TradePrintingUK are one of the specialist UK printing companies that can print these pre paid PPI envelopes in full colour for you, once you've got your licence with your carrier.
Used to post out business letters, statements, invoices and bills, surveys, customer or member questionnaires or application forms.
