The Royal Mail have now announced price changes to their postage tariffs for franking machine s and stamps. The good news is that using a franking machine still offers a 35% saving over using stamps which is a massive 17p off the price of a second class stamp.
This discount continues to offer customers the great benefit of cheaper postage costs with the Royal Mail through a franking machine.
