Franking

- the flexible way to manage your mail

Need an easy way to manage your postage costs? Don’t have time for petty cash and receipts? Franking allows you to manage your post, paying for it as and when you need it.

How does it work?

Simply invest in a franking machine from one of our approved suppliers, credit your machine by telephone or modem and you are ready to start franking your own post.

Step by step

Where can I get a franking machine?

Contact one of our approved suppliers

How do I pay for my postage?

You can credit the franking machine in the comfort of your own office:

  • By phone
  • Via a modem

The new franking machine can be configured so that only authorised users can purchase additional postage.

You can set a maximum amount of postage, so there's no danger of running up large bills by mistake.

What advantages are there to investing in a franking machine?

  • Give your mail a more professional look
  • Company logos can be printed as part of the frank
  • Return address can be printed as part of the frank
  • Save time and money for your business
  • You pay for postage as and when you need it - no petty cash, no receipts, no fuss
  • Re-credit the franking machine over the phone or through a modem
  • You can authorise only certain users to re-credit the machine - keeping a tight grip on your costs
  • Electronic or digital franking machines are more secure and efficient than the mechanical predecessors
  • You can link your franking machine to other office equipment such as scales, inserters, folders, computers and printers
  • Dates change automatically on your machine
