Inserting & Mailing

Save time and money by having Martin & Chapman Co. insert and mail your Vote-by-Mail and Sample Ballots. Our knowledge in postal requirements and services will help you decide which route will maximize your postal discounts. 

 
High Speed Inserting
Our high speed inserter helps maintain correct material integrity while also ensuring your products get out on time. Cameras and scanning sensors are built into our inserter to mitigate the risks that are found in older inserters (such as no pick, double pick, or wrong ballot). We have the ability to give you an accounting of a "one-to-one" match, or just a report of the total number of pieces mailed. 
 
Envelopes
We offer a large selection of envelopes in different sizes, colors, and styles to meet your case by case needs. Our Hide-A-Signature envelope helps deliver the ballot back to your office while maintaining sensitive information private. We also offer envelopes that are more cost effective to help you save money on postage by sending the ballot and sample ballot out in the same package. Lastly, we offer "off-the-shelf" envelopes that are budget friendly in different sizes and color. Our Vote-By-Mail wording templates have been professionally translated into seven different languages to meet election code and Department of Justice requirements. All of our envelopes are ink-jetted in house to keep costs down, and to personalize your mailing route.
