Royal Mail inflation-busting franking price freeze

Royal Mail logo

Despite UK inflation currently running above 5%, Royal Mail has frozen the cost of sending standard mail and parcels via a franking machine in their latest round of price changes which came into effect on January 4th 2022.

This price freeze is great news for businesses sending post via a Royal Mail Mailmark franking machine, which remains the most cost-effective and efficient method of sending business post in mainland UK.

Volume related discounts for bulk mailing available through a franking machine under Royal Mail’s Business Mail Advanced tariff did see a slight increase, although savings of up to 25% are still available when sending over 250 letters of the same type at the same time.


Royal Mail franking and stamp prices from 4th January 2022 are as follows:
