Royal Mail’s new Mailmark rates will still ensure big savings over stamps and standard franking


Royal Mail has announced that it is changing some of its Mailmark franking machine rates. Due to come into effect 26th March 2018, the slight adjustments are being made to ensure Royal Mail can continue to deliver the excellent services it is world renowned for.

Specific details on the tariff changes will be released shortly, but what we can say is that sending items via Mailmark will still ensure big savings over using standard franking, and even bigger savings over using stamps.

For example from 26th March there will be a 19p saving between a franked Mailmark 2nd Class letter versus  a Stamp and a 10p saving between a franked Mailmark 1st Class letter versus s Stamp.

Why use Mailmark?

Mailmark is a new generation of franking mark that carries more information about the item being sent. Not only does it enhance tracking mail location and delivery, but it also adds intelligence to mail processes with accurate address checking and access to Royal Mail’s online analytics dashboard.

Furthermore, Mailmark ensures that users are always charged Royal Mail’s lowest tariffs. This, combined with the franking machine’s accurate item weighing and measuring, ensures businesses are always paying the lowest, correct postage. Controlling spiralling costs is a headache for all companies, so ensuring that postage is kept low provides peace of mind that resources aren’t being wasted.
