To frank not stamp still makes Franking Sense®
Franking machines continue to provide up to 45% discount on mail after Royal Mail price changes.
Prices for largest large letters, small and medium parcels frozen so packet and parcel sending via a franking machine becomes even more competitive.
New Royal Mail franking machine and stamp prices come into force effective October 2nd 2023. The changes have seen letter prices up to 500g increase almost across the board, with the exception of 2nd Class stamps, while prices for the largest large letters, small and medium parcels up to 20kg remain unchanged. The latter is great news for businesses with franking machines who regularly send large packets and parcels.
Significant discounts are still available through a franking machine compared to stamps. For example, you can save 45% by moving from 1st class stamps to 2nd Class Mailmark™ and you will see no real reduction in service delivery. Now that makes Franking Sense®!
