Would Franking be a better option?

For many businesses, stamps are an ideal postage solution. They add a personal touch to business mail, and market research has shown that customers are more likely to open stamped letters than any other postage mark.

However, if your business regularly sends out large volumes of mail, franking may be a more practical and cost-effective solution.
