Frequently Asked Questions on Franking Machines

What is a franking machine?

A franking machine allows you to print postage stamps onto your outgoing mail. It can enable you access to Royal Mail special rates such as franking rates, Mailmark & Business Mail Advanced, which are cheaper than stamps. Another feature is that you can print your logo and marketing message, which gives the posts a professional look.

What is franked mail?

Franked mail contains frank mark instead of a stamp. This means that by using a franking machine you can print a ‘frank mark’ directly onto the envelope or onto a label rather than sticking a stamp on your outgoing mail. Franked postage can be added to letters, packets and parcels with a franking machine. Franked mail not only saves time but also gives access to Royal Mail discounted rates such as franking rates, Mailmark & Business Mail Advanced (BMA).

How to use a franking machine?

1. Make sure that your machine has the most up to date Royal Mail rates available

2. Place the letter, packet or parcel onto the scale on your franking machine.

3. Select the Royal Mail service that you require; first class, second class, recorded, signed for etc.

4. Ensure that you have selected the slogan/logo that you require. This can be anything from your company logo to a festive message.

5. Place the item into the feeder of the machine to print the frank mark onto it.

Larger machines in the range have an automatic feeder which will allow you to print multiple items without manually processing them. Machines in the Elite range can have a dynamic scale, which means the machine will automatically weigh each letter, determine the price and print the frank mark onto it.

Once you have franked your mail, you can take it to your local Post Office, post it in a Pox Box (in a meter posting envelope) or if you send high volumes of mail, you can request Royal Mail to pick up your mail daily.

How does a franking machine machine work?

A franking machine comes with a Royal Mail licence.  When you want to pay for postage on your outgoing mail, you can use your franking machine to print a postage payment (frank mark) along with company logo & message onto your letter, packet or parcel instead of using stamps. Your franking machine will weigh the item and print the correct postage amount based on the Royal Mail rates, depending on the Royal Mail service (i.e. 1st class, 2nd class, signed for etc.) that you require. Franked postage rates are cheaper than stamps.

What is a Mailmark franking machine?

A franking machine that is compatible with the Royal Mail Mailmark rates is a Mailmark franking machine. A Mailmark frank mark includes a barcode that Royal Mail systems can read, allowing them to process your mail in a more cost-efficient way. These cost savings are passed onto you, which means you save even more money on your outgoing post than you would if you franked your mail in the standard way.

Mailmark Extra™ gives you even more discounts on each letter that you send.

Can I put franked mail in a post box?

You can put your franked mail into a standard Royal Mail post box if it is collated inside a ‘postage meter envelope’ or inside a normal envelope with your machine details on. There are also multiple franked mailboxes around the country to drop your franked mail into freely. If you are unsure, you can take your franked mail into your local Post Office.
