Did you know that a large proportion of all the mail sent by UK businesses is franked?
The Royal Mail Franking Service means that postage is printed on your mail automatically by a franking machine that can go anywhere in your company’s offices or mail room.
It can save you time, effort and money.
You don’t have to be sending out lots of mail to consider our Franking Service as it's suitable for sole traders, small to medium businesses and even large office mail rooms.
You can start covering your costs relatively quickly even if you only send a modest amount of mail each week.
Do consider all the costs of franking, such as lease charges, purchase price, along with ongoing expenses like print cartridges, new price downloads, update pricing chips and so on.
If, once you’ve done the sums, using the Service makes sense, you can look forward to:
Saving money with many mail products at reduced cost.
Saving time with fewer trips to the Post Office.
Greater security as everything you buy through franking is recorded.
Credit facilities from your manufacturer or supplier to help manage your spend.
And a professional Company image with your logo or marketing message on the envelope.
And if your business is registered for VAT, Franking could be helpful - by recording usage so you can claim back VAT on many mail products.
Royal Mail doesn't manufacture or supply franking machines directly.
So speak to one of our approved providers and ask about the new generation of SMART machines.
Once you have your machine, a Royal Mail Licence to frank mail will be set up and you can start using our service, provided you have credit in place with your supplier or manufacturer.
From then on, it’s easy to top up with credit whenever you like, for whatever amount you need.
Not only is this service great for handling the steady stream of every day mail – but it also lets you use international mail, Special Delivery, Collections – and even help out with mail marketing campaigns.
Royal Mail’s Franking Service can make life a lot easier and simpler – to say nothing of saving you money.
Isn’t it about time you looked into it?
