Why Choose Franking?

The simple answer to this basic question is that franked mail is by far much cheaper than using stamps. The amount you save will differ depending on what you send, but almost every item you frank will offer you some saving. For example sending a second class letter weighing 90g will cost you 56p when sending via a stamp whereas franking will cost you 38p. That’s an 18p saving every time! On the other hand sending a first class small parcel weighing 900g will cost you £3.40 when sending via a stamp whereas franking will cost you £3.12. That’s a 28p savings every time! So as you can see, you can save a lot each time you frank mail instead of stamping mail.
