Do I need to use envelopes to send my print newsletter?
We provide versions for use with an envelope and versions for use without an envelope. With these self-mailer versions there is space for you to add the address. You would then fold the newsletter and seal it with tabs.

Email: Emails are one scrolling page. The newsletter appears within the body of the email.
Do I have to use a commercial printer to print my newsletter?
No, you can print the newsletter in your own office using your computer’s printer. If you need help with this, please contact us.
Can you print and mail my newsletters for me?

Can I print my newsletter on 11in x 17in paper?
Yes, you can. You will need to adjust your printer settings for paper size and to make sure it prints the pages in the right order. As each printer is different, we cannot give you precise instructions here, but we advise you to choose “booklet” as the printing style, if that option appears. Contact us if you need help.
How much will it cost to mail my newsletter?
Mailing costs vary, depending on whether you choose first-class mail or bulk mail. We advise you to contact your post office for the latest information or ask us about our printing and mailing service.

However, if you don’t use Active Campaign, we will not be able to personalize your newsletter for you.

Your first newsletter will be set up within two working days. Then you’ll get access to each fresh newsletter around the 15th of the month before (for example, September's newsletter is published August 15).
