Standard franking

 

The fast, convenient and cost effective way to mail

Franking your mail not only offers lower prices than conventional
postage, but also saves time and helps create a professional image.
Simply print pre-paid postage onto your envelopes and labels
‘in-house’.

Cut costs

Franking can significantly reduce
your mailing costs. For example, sending a franked 1st Class letter costs just 57p.

Save time

Printing postage in-house means
fewer trips to the Post Office® - and it’s so much faster than applying postage manually.
Even basic franking machine models offer major time-savings.

Manage your spend

Upload credit as and when you
need it and monitor usage
throughout your business to help
understand departmental spend and keep track of VAT.

From invoices and bills to catalogues, stationery to loyalty cards franking is the convenient, time-saving way your business can keep in contact with your customers both in the UK and Internationally – without even leaving your office.
