  • The Uniprint file server

Contact Uniprint for instructions on how to access the Uniprint file drop facility or file server.

Please also note that there is a charge for opening and downloading electronic files:

  • NZ$1.50 (per media) for the first file downloaded

Envelope guidelines

New Zealand Post has strict requirements for the printing of envelopes for bulk mail outs. This includes meeting the standards for pre-printed information on the envelopes and ensuring your database meets the criteria to receive the most cost effective mail rates. For your mail to go at the cheap bulk rate, ensure that your envelopes are correctly laid out and your merged address information is accurate and correctly formatted.

Learn about mail merge printing and distribution or talk to your Uniprint Client Services Representative, who can guide you through the process.
