Volume Post Font
“The best simulated handwritten typeface ever tested in the NZ Post platform”.

In 2020 we launched the first ever Volume Post 1 approved handwritten font in New Zealand.

Andrea’s font delivered a game-changer especially to the not-for-profit sector for reducing the postage costs of ‘handwritten’ envelopes for bulk mail.

Results for handwritten type on Direct Mail envelopes in countries like the US, report recipients are 300% more likely to open vs. a computer printed looking one, some side by side tests showing a 12% percent greater response rate.

Here in New Zealand, with our strict post rules, we have tested and seen a direct correlation and upswing in response rates under specific envelope design that includes the handwritten font.

The 2020 font is now used exclusively by World Vision New Zealand and Kathmandu.
