About Sharp Cat

The Story of Sharp Cat

Back in 2002 the effigy of Sharp Cat was created. At first just a set of pencilled sketches, Sharp Cat set out in the world to fight poor quality mail and set the highest standards, especially for smaller sized mailings which at that time were often overlooked in favour of mass mailing. Often innovative, the Sharp Cat emphasis has always been on strong systems and people, made possible by having an in-house systems analyst right from the start.

Fast forward to 2018 and standards across all mailing companies have risen so far that clients can expect a good service wherever they go. So what does Sharp Cat do differently?

Unique

As well as providing quality print and mail we also supply some unique and free of charge services. These include, trees, mail reports and mail opt out. Some clients tell us that they really like having a tree planted every time they mail. At the last count 1,836 trees had been planted. Other clients look out for their mailing reports which they use as a back copy reference.

Privileged to print and mail with many professional clients across multiple industries, Sharp Cat has a strong track record of referrals and recommendations.

All Part of the Sharp Cat Service

Value-added services include:

1. PIRS Mailing reports to confirm what mail has posted and when. 8-pages of information.

2. Returns management, keying and reporting. Supplied like clockwork every month.

3. Free use of Mail Opt Out for GDPR. Anyone on any database can easily unsubscribe with mailoptout.co.uk An important part of good GDPR practise.

4. New trees planted into the Caledonian Forest, x1 tree per mailing. A running tally is included showing the total trees planted.

For good communication every client is assigned x2 designated contacts to schedule mailings as well as providing a resource of information. So no one should ever have the experience where they cannot get to speak with one of their Account Managers.

Common Questions About Mail

What's the advantage of ordering print and mail in one?

What’s the most problematic print colour? Red? Surprisingly it is blue! Will the ink coverage dry in the time allotted? How will the finished envelopes look when they arrive at desks and door mats? By supplying combined print and mail services Sharp Cat can produce the best combined result between practicality and design.

What's the Best Postage for Bulk Mail Services?

It depends upon the size, weight and delivery service required! DSA (Down Stream Access) companies are competing for postage business alongside Royal Mail. As a result postage has become complicated with a wide choice of products and prices. To offer clients the right postal carrier for the format, weight and delivery speed of each mailing Sharp Cat has contracts with the top DSA companies as well as Royal Mail.

Weight of Mail Pack, Why Does it Matter?

Sometimes choosing the best design and paper stock can help cut mailing costs by half. For example, the postage difference between a Large Letter at 101g and a Letter at 100g is significant. Size matters too, as exceeding the maximum width pushes mail packs into higher product bands.

How to Stay Ahead in Mail Services in an Ever Changing Technological World?

To stay on top of the latest technological mail developments Sharp Cat takes part in forums and workshops from industry leaders. This brings the newest mail and print knowledge in the reach of our clients. Every year Royal Mail makes product changes. Later this year they are introducing a brand new product, partially addressed mailing.
