A brief history of Document Despatch
Document Despatch are a mailing house, based in Basingstoke, Hampshire. The company completed its first mailing 30 years ago in 1987, printed and enclosed on basic equipment operated by the company’s founders enclosing 1,000 items an hour.
Today, we have capacity to produce
The technology has changed a lot since 1987, but we still pride ourselves on the same core values – Service, Quality, and Value.
As with all industries technology has changed the way we do things, but more importantly we recognise that it is our people who make the real difference, and that’s what keeps our customers coming back time after time. We recruit and retain the very best people, and develop each individual to their full potential.
We strive to promote an atmosphere of openness, respect, and integrity in all our dealings with our stakeholders - customers, suppliers, our employees, and our neighbours
We nurture long term relationships, both internally and externally, and enjoy the lasting business partnerships that result. Many of our customers have been with us for over 10 years, and the majority of our staff have been with us just as long. We believe that is no coincidence!
We recognise that our ongoing success depends on recruiting and retaining quality people. People that can work well in a team, can contribute new ideas, and take pride in what they do. People who can provide innovative solutions for our customers, and add value to our business.

To Despatch or Dispatch that is the question…
There is no difference between dispatch and despatch. The latter is an alternative spelling that was common in the 19th century and earlier. Despatch has mostly disappeared from the language—except in the U.K., where it appears in place of dispatch about a third of the time—and dispatch is the preferred spelling for all senses of the word.
The main exception is in the phrase despatch box, which refers to the lectern in the British House of Commons and the Australian House of Representatives. This use is the main contributor to the relative frequency of despatch in the U.K.
Send off to a destination or for a purpose
Early 16th century: from Italian dispacciare or Spanish despachar ‘expedite’, from dis-, des- (expressing reversal) + the base of Italian impacciare, Spanish empachar ‘hinder’.
