What details do I need to provide so you can get me a print quote?

  • Document type (A4, A3, report etc.) including any fold or binding
  • Specific paper preference (recycled, thicker paper, gloss, matte etc.)

How long will it take to print?

  • Digital – depending on the size of the print run same day or 1 working day (max)
  • Offset – generally 1-2 working days depending on the size of the print run and the type of folding required.

What format do I need to provide the print file in?

  • Print ready PDF
  • If printing offset, it’s generally a good idea to set up the print file with 5mm bleed and trim lines.
  • It’s also a good idea to check that images such as maps and photos are high res (especially for larger formal print like display posters).

Why does offset take longer than digital?

Offset printers use ink rather than toner. The ink needs to dry before your document can be trimmed and folded adding additional time to the print process.

Do you use recycled paper?

Pretty much all the paper we used is recycled to some extent. We can also provide options on 100% recycled and enviro chain of custody paper stock.

What details do I need to provide so you can get me a distribution quote?

  • Map or a description of the targeted zone
  • Tentative date for distribution
  • Target for the distribution (Residents Only, Business Only or Business and Residential)
  • Priority Area (if you have one)
  • Return of stock if you would like to have leftovers couriered

Can I use your software to map my distribution area and estimate the number of letterboxes?

Yes! We can give you your own login to our ManageMy Post software which will allow you to create your own maps, automatically estimate the number of letterboxes and view completed jobs with GPS tracks.

Is there a minimum number of items that you’ll distribute?

No, we can do one property or entire postcodes.

How long will it take to distribute my newsletter?

Depends on the size of the distribution zone. Smaller jobs are usually completed in one day, with larger distributions generally ranging between 2 – 3 days.

Do you deliver to secure buildings?

In the event that the letterboxes are inside a locked or secure building:

  • The distributor will try to find the contact information for the Building Manager or Strata management
  • They will contact the building manger to try and gain access to the mail room/ building  
  • If we are unsuccessful (after multiple attempts), we will note down the undelivered addresses in an Exceptions Report.
  • Once we provide you with the report, you may ask us to re-attempt, and if unsuccessful affix a notification to the outside of the building, or post the letters to the undeliverable address via Australia Post.

How will you confirm my item has been delivered?

We will send you a ManageMy Post map of your distribution area with the GPS tracks of each distributor overlaid so you can see exactly where they walked and when.

What are the blue dots on my distribution map?

Our tracking software uses the Federal Government's Geocoded National Address file (GNAF) as a data source. In most instances the GPS point for each property is set in the middle of the property or nearer the street frontage,

We geofence these properties, and when a walker walks within 2m of the property it lets us know by checking off the blue dot. When the GPS point for that property is set back further into the lot, the geofence is set back further and so the blue dot isn't checked.

This can include instances where:

  • The property is set back well from the street (like a battleaxe property arrangement) and are likely to have a letterbox on the street
  • There is a GPS point for a park, or beach
  • The geocode for that property is not set to the middle of the property, but at the far end 

In all cases, these blue dots are either not delivery points or the letterbox was on the street.

Where do you get your distributors?

Almost all of our distributors are tertiary students, and a portion of these are doing a communications related degree at Uni (which is really useful for walking into businesses and handing things over or doing station handouts).

Where do you get your data from?

Where do you get your data from?

We utilise a number of data sources:

  • We are an Australia Post Data Partner and have access to their address data and insights data sets
  • The Federal Government’s Geocoded National Address file (GNAF)
  • ABS data
  • NSW Government data (including TFNSW travel data)

How will using data help me?

  • Gives an idea of the demographic in the area

What are the dimensions of your Display Stands?

  • 2175mm h X 1200mm w (will fit up to AO sized items in landscape)
  • Each stand weighs approx 4kg packed up in its own zip up bag
  • Will easily fit in the back of a small car

What can I attach to the Display Stands?

Attaching posters to the display is as easy as using sticky Velcro tabs, allowing the stand to be used over and over again for a range of different events.

Is it cheaper to hire or buy?

Depending on the length of the rental and the number of stands you need, buying them outright can be a cost effective alternative to hire.

Do you deliver, set up and collect?

Just want to show up at your information session with all the set up already done? We can help! DanD can deliver, set up and collect the stands anywhere in the Sydney metro area.

Who does your outreach stuff?

Our outreach staff are predominately tertiary students studying a communications related discipline at Uni. 

Are they properly trained to do outreach type activities?

All outreach staff have been trained by community engagement specialist Oliver Young. Oliver oversees each outreach activity personally, from liaising with the client to understand the project to briefing staff and supervising in the field.

What kinds of projects have you worked on?

We have worked on a range of Government and private industry projects including:

  • Major construction projects (road, rail and property development)
  • Urban renewal
  • Local Government policy initiatives
  • Urban planning (for both consultancies, developers and Government)
