AdMailer allows companies to design their own corporate Christmas cards from templates. These are then printed, placed in envelopes and delivered by An Post within three days.

Companies can use the new service to design their own corporate Christmas cards. They can add their own photographs and select from a range of design templates. They can of course include marketing messages, should they wish, alongside their Christmas and New Year greetings.

The cost of each greeting card is €1.50, including postage anywhere in , with a minimum order of 200 cards. 20% of every sale is donated to the Peter McVerry Trust.

An Post sales and marketing director Liam Sheehan told the Irish Times:

“Talking to customers in firms large and small, from SMEs to multinationals, we know there’s a real understanding of the power of a personal greeting at Christmas… An email just doesn’t cut it at this time of year.”

Pat Doyle, Chief Executive of the Peter McVerry Trust, said:

“The winter months are a particularly active time for our charity, and this additional support by An Post and Irish businesses will assist us in providing more keys to homes for people experiencing homelessness in Ireland.”

An Post’s team will assist and advise business customers on their card design and mailing.
