Designing and packaging letters
Correct preparation for smooth processing

Anchor Navigation

Correctly placing the postage paid impression, the recipient and sender addresses, and appropriate packaging ensure optimal and efficient processing as well as reliable delivery to the recipient.

Follow our recommendations for designing your consignment and packing it the ideal way. This protects the content from damage and attracts attention from the recipient while raising curiosity. The packaging guidelines are based on the standards set out by the printing industry.
