Post letter template

Letter Template Options

We automatically stamp the recipient address onto the letter. It's important that you don't have content in that area or we will stamp over it. If you prefer, we can insert a blank page at the front of the letter that we stamp with the address.

There are 2 options for sending mail using our Post system:

Option 1: Use Our Template

Download Our Letter Template - this file shows the parts of the page that you can and can't use.

To specify that you're using our template:

  • If you're sending via the dashboard: choose template used -> yes.
  • If you're sending via the Printer Driver: check the 'template used' checkbox.
  • If you're sending via the API: use the 'template_used'=1 parameter in the API request.

Option 2: Don't use our template

If you don't want to use our template, this is ok. This means you can fill up the whole page as much as you like. We'll automatically add a blank page at the front with the recipients address.

To specify that you're not using our template:

  • If you're sending via the dashboard: choose template used -> no.
  • If you're sending via the Printer Driver: uncheck the 'template used' checkbox.
  • If you're sending via the API: use the 'template_used'=0 parameter in the API request.

Note: For sending to the UK and Europe you don't need to use our template because we print on the front of the envelope.

Envelope Sizes

  • For small letters (4 pages simplex / 8 pages duplex) we use DLX (tri-fold windowed envelope). 
  • For large letters (5+ pages simplex / 9+ pages duplex) we use C4 (flat windowed envelope with no folds).

Currently in Europe we're using a C5 envelope for small letters (single fold) with the address printed on the front.
