Why do you still use Stamps?

How Much Cheaper Is Franked Mail Compared To Stamps?
The simple answer is that franked mail is much cheaper than stamps. However, how much cheaper depends on what you’re sending.

The greatest savings come from sending a 2nd class letter, which saves you £0.15 or 30% for each letter you send. At the other end you’ll save just 6% or £0.30 by using a franking machine to send a small parcel.

Why choose Franking?

Cut costs
Franking can significantly reduce your mailing costs. For example, a franked 1st Class letter costs just 52p – that’s a saving of 11p compared to a 1st Class stamp.

Save time
Printing postage in-house means fewer trips to the Post Office – and it’s so much faster than applying postage manually.

Reinforce your brand
Give all your mail a professional, recognisable image with your logo or marketing message printed on the envelope or label.

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.

Improve efficiency
The latest, most sophisticated franking machines can process huge volumes of mail quickly and accurately – and even basic models offer major time-savings.
