What is Royal Mail Mailmark Franking?

Royal Mail Mailmark franking was introduced early in 2014 with the aim to enhance the way mail is processed and to make it easier for postal services. The main difference between a Mailmark franking machine and a Non Mailmark franking machine is that an all new readable 2D barcode replaces the traditional franking impression.
