An Post asks Publicity Post customers to follow specific packing requirements, which we will explain to you when you make a booking:

  • Pack leaflets or brochures into boxes weighing no more than 10kg, with leaflets secured in bundles of 100. The heavier the leaflet, the fewer bundles in a box
  • An Post will supply Publicity Post labels - which you must display clearly on the outer side of your boxes - along with a confirmation letter detailing your packing and delivery instructions
  • Postage Pre-Paid marking and Return Addresses are prohibited on your leaflet design
