If you use a standard franking machine, you could be missing out on savings of up to 8% on the cost of sending your business mail. Switching to one of the latest MailMark™ franking systems could save you up to 3p per letter in comparison to standard franking. Royal Mail guarantee that MailMark™ postage discounts will always be the lowest available franking prices and to qualify for these discounts, you simply require a MailMark™ compatible franking machine.

What is MailMark™?

Mailmark™ is a new technology from Royal Mail that has changed the face of franked mail. Mailmark™ uses printed barcodes and recent upgrades to Royal Mail optical recognition and sequence sortation systems to provide reports on where individual pieces of mail are at up to five different points in the mailing process. This is designed to give a higher level of reassurance that mail has been delivered, a more accurate indication of delivery date and to improve Royal Mail internal processes.

Mailmark™ supersedes the traditional 'town and crown' die with a dedicated indicia and machine readable 2D barcode as shown above.
