It offers a range of services that align growing needs, especially from both ecommerce and WFH businesses, who want a professional solution for shipping worldwide, or a postal mailbox separate to their operational or residential address.


Limitless PR was tasked with supporting the development of the franchise business in the UK through proactive media relations. This involved working in close partnership with the company’s inhouse strategic marketing and content marketing teams.

Franchise partners were at the heart of the media relations campaign. Limitless worked directly with partners across the UK to develop stories illustrating the regional role Mail Boxes Etc. plays in supporting local economies and helping small and medium sized enterprise operate on a global scale.

Ongoing, we are working with the client ongoing to support its continued franchise growth and development.
