Charities can save up to 27% on print costs


Want to save 27% on your printing costs and 40% on postage?

Last year we launched a print and mailing service to our charities so we can help you save money as well as raise money. The print management service has gone from strength to strength with average savings of 27%!

We can supply any kind of printed product you may need including leaflets, newsletters, banners and posters. No quantity is too big or too small.

Print management

We continue to offer the very best print prices across a broad range of printed products. Our supplier base are all screened for key criteria such as financial stability, environmental and ISO accreditations. Some offer services at either greatly reduced prices or free of charge exclusively for our charities. Our services covers any kind of print from leaflets to brochures to direct mail and point of sale.

Free warehousing

If you want to buy your print in volume to achieve the best possible rates we can now store your print for you in one of our warehouses for free. We have negotiated free warehousing exclusively for our charity customers.

Paper rebates

We have introduced for 2015 a new rebate scheme, this is on top of the best market rates we already achieve. The rebate comes from our paper merchants. Because of our buying power it means that we will receive a 3% rebate on every order which we will return to each charity in full. Every job we manage qualifies for this no matter how big or small.

The best postage rates in the UK

We have also launched our new postage service which is only available from Give as you Live. This new platform uses a sophisticated software system to profile your postcode data and in turn recover discounts not previously available. It guarantees to delivery savings for you who ever you currently use to mail your post. There are certain qualifying conditions but we manage this process for you so it can be quickly and simply installed. This service is free so please get in touch for further details.

Advice on VAT – the rules are changing

There are also some important changes in the charging of VAT on postage coming into force on the 2nd April this year. The changes will be robustly enforced by HMRC so it’s really important you understand the implications. It is possible you may need to pay VAT on you postage from then if you don’t have the necessary arrangements in place. Give as you Live has been preparing for these changes for some time and can help you ensure you don’t pay unnecessary VAT and that you are compliant with the new rules.
