Forsaking Stamps and Post Office Queues

Forsaking Stamps and Post Office Queues

Congratulations, you’ve decided to opt for a Royal Mail franking machine for your post requirements and are set to forsake your stash of stamps and endless queueing at the post office for special delivery and sign on delivery mail.

You’ll be able to handle every postal need from your business premises and enjoy having franked mail only mailboxes.

You won’t be disappointed by your decision, from small businesses to large corporations considerable cost and time savings are made by switching from the outdated stamp method and embracing technology.

Franked mail is treated as business post and often makes its way through the postal network more efficiently than mainstream mail.

Royal Mail franking machines

As you may already know, Royal Mail franking machines are authorised by them and they have ruled that any new franking machines must be smart technology enabled. This is excellent news for the user.

This allows VAT reclaim benefits and Royal Mail have spent a considerable amount of time and money on revolutionising the way that franked mail works and giving the client maximum visibility and reporting tools.

Barcoding and Mailmark

The old crown and die image is replaced with 2-dimension barcode data on a smart franking machine. Royal Mail’s Mailmark service pricing structure, which can only be taken advantage of with smart franking machines, is the most economic pricing available.

Keep in mind:

  • Franking will always cost less than stamps.
  • Mailmark will always cost less than franked mail on a non-smart technology franking machine.
