Communicate was started in 2003 by 2 brothers Hugh and Tommy Latta in a small room in a business centre in the east end of Glasgow.
We started with the aim of making direct mail marketing easily accessible to clients to help them post letters, leaflets, brochures, invoices and statements without the hassle of hand stuffing envelopes, franking and staggering down to the Post Office!
Our customers helped us grow and by investing in new equipment, adding new mailing services and expertise to our range of customer options, the business became established as a quality mailing solutions provider for both small and large scale direct mail projects.
We moved to a small industrial unit in the Gorbals in 2004 and within 3 years Communicate had grown to 2,200 square feet of space and was bursting at the seams.
Another move beckoned and in 2007 Communicate moved to Dalmarnock, Glasgow.
More investment followed in additional equipment, software solutions, training and personnel and Communicate continued to meet and exceed our client’s needs.
Communicate became renowned for excellent mailing services & quick turnaround often providing a same day or next day service to help clients meet their deadlines.
The investment in technology meant Communicate could handle large scale variable data printing and personalisation for any bulk mail fulfilment project. Adding an additional polywrapping and envelope enclosing systems meant no project was too small or too large.
Clients projects included small daily mailings of 100’s to a single job of over 500,000 letters being printed, personalised with variable data, folded, enclosed in envelopes and posted using the latest mailsorting software to maximise postage savings.
After a further expansion in 2011 Communicate moved to Cambuslang becoming established as a premier direct mail and mailing fulfilment provider in Glasgow.
Finally Communicate moved again in October 2017 to be closer to motorway links at Queenslie Industrial Estate. This site next to the M8 makes Communicate easily accessible from all of Scotland and the UK.
This move was a significant financial investment in moving and fitting out the new premises and will allow Communicate to continue to provide excellent service to our clients for years to come.
Communicate has continued to invest in new services in 2018
- New Full Colour envelope printing equipment
- New Mailmark and Mailsorting software,
- New systems approved by Royal Mail to carry out Mailmark mailings.
We have become members of The Strategic Mailing Partnership, certified by Royal Mail to carry out all mailing and postal services for clients.
Where now? Communicate will continue to innovate and develop the range of services our clients need to meet their bulk mailing requirements and strive to maintain the excellent service we are renowned for providing. With the help of our clients, Communicate will continue to grow in the years to come.
