STAMPS VS FRANKING
For businesses using stamps & currently generating reasonable amounts of postage there are great savings to be achieved by switching to a Mailmark Franking System from PBS. When comparing prices on standard 1st & 2nd Class Letters, or 1st & 2nd Class Large Letters the savings range from an impressive 9p per item at the lower end up to a massive 51p per item at the top end, with 9p being the minimum saving per item. A business currently sending out ten Standard 1st Class & 10 Standard 2nd Class Letters per day will save a guaranteed £16.00 per week!! (Prices are based on Royal Mail UK prices 01.01.2021 & 5 day working week).
With rental prices starting from just £5.95 + VAT per week, plus ink & an annual service charge from year 2 onwards, the average business sending out 100 letters per week (mixed as above) could benefit from the speed & benefits of a machine & still save up to an additional £217.62 per annum* (£342.62 in year one). Detailed in the table below are the current Royal Mail stamp prices in the UK, & the current Mailmark Franking prices with the savings per item.

* Savings example quoted is based on a 6 year rental paid quarterly in advance being taken out (subject to approval), an annual service plan at £125.00 + VAT per annum in year 2 onwards being taken out, and the usage of 2 ink cartridges per annum being used costing £89.99 + VAT each. Higher usage will possibly increase ink/running costs but will also increase postage savings. Each machine includes at least one free company logo worth £109.99 & for new customers an additional £100.00 of free postage credit adding to their account or equivalent in vouchers being supplied following the successful machine installation & commencement of the relevant hire agreement.
