What is a Franking Machine?

A franking machine allows you to print postage onto your letters without requiring stamps.

Anatomy of a franking machine.

Franking machines of all sizes do basically the same job and all franking machines have to be licensed by the Royal Mail.

Franking machines use blue or red ink depending on whether they are using Royal Mail Mailmark and ink costs are much lower than you would expect making it very affordable.

Franking machines fit any business size whether large, small or start-up.

From small eBay businesses all the way up to large corporations, but they all basically do the same job just with different speeds and features i.e. some franking machines have automatic feeders and some have software connections to download account data .


Franking machines download their postage straight into the machine.

Franking machines can use either your telephone line, your network or broadband router connection or your Wi-Fi depending on the model.

There’s no more queuing at the post office with a franking machine, we set up a postage account for you usually by direct debit and then you download whatever postage you need for that month, downloading is free if you download once per month .
