ROYAL MAIL Discover is delivered by Royal Mail in rural areas or where it is traditionally awkward to deliver thoroughly. It’s a very reliable method of delivery so we don’t carry out secondary checks.

Leaflet Distribution Regular leaflet delivery is very effective although not cost effect for every type of business. Please feel free to ask for advice and how to get the most from leaflet distribution. Each leaflet is inserted individually and delivered within Discover. This has proved to be better than separately albeit at the same time. We provide a very competitively priced leaflet design and print service so please ask for a quotation. A table of available slots per edition is available online. Every edition except Meon Valley can take up to 4 leaflets per month.
