Franking services can massively reduce the cost of your mail. Take a look in the 'how much can I save' section on this page for examples of specific reductions.
Control your postage costs: upload credit as and when you need it.
Understand departmental spend: learn how your business branches use their Franking machines.
Instant access to crucial mail products directly on your Franking machine - no need to queue at the Post Office®.
Get mail out to customers at the optimum speed – automatically printed postage is so much faster and more accurate than manually applied.
For larger mailrooms, sophisticated Franking machines can manage fast processing, inserting and weighing large volumes of mail.
Deliver marketing solutions
Customise your Franking mark to include your company name and logo, as well as your return address.
Use the space for a specific advertising message, or to draw attention to an offer or promotion.
Reinforce your brand
Create a consistent identity across every mailing: regardless of the size, colour or shape of your mail, the highly visible Franking impression will help to reinforce your brand and create consistency throughout the customer journey.
Strengthen customer relations
Be instantly recognisable: posting using Franking impressions means your mail will give assurance that it’s from a familiar source. Your mail will be welcomed by your customers - a great way to improve customer relations instantly.
Franking machines are used by large corporate companies, government organisations and universities as well as small and medium size businesses and sole traders.
There are no restrictions on minimum or maximum postage volumes, so you save money whether you post one letter or a large volume of mail.
