Neopost Franking Machine Users Save Nearly 30% on Postal Costs as Royal Mail Announce April Price Increase

ROMFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 5, 2011) - Neopost Ltd, the UK's No.1 supplier of franking machines and folder inserters offer bespoke mailing solutions and provide free advice on improving the efficiency of your inbound and outbound mail processes.

With April fast approaching, the Royal Mail has announced its annual price increase for postal rates:

  • From 4th April, the prices of 1st & 2nd class stamps are set to rise to 46p and 36p respectively. That's an increase of 5p on 1st class and 4p on 2nd class!
  • For franking machine users, prices have increased by 3p to 39p and by 3p to 28p respectively. This is the first increase for two years on franked mail following a price freeze last year.
  • This now means that it costs nearly 30% more to stamp than to frank!

If your business is still using stamps to send items of mail, you may want to consider a more convenient and efficient alternative - franked mail. A franking machine can pay for itself, even when sending as little as 15 items per day. If you're still unsure whether a franking machine will benefit your business, why not try a Neopost franking machine for FREE?

Below are some benefits of using a Neopost Franking Machine.

Genuinely convenient

  • No more queuing! - With a Neopost franking machine you'll never run out of postage. That's because it can be re-credited on-line with postage 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • Right first time every time - Calculating the correct postage is easy with our on-screen rate wizard, so there's no risk of under-stamping and passing surcharges onto customers, or over stamping and incurring unnecessary costs.
  • Manage your postage on-line - An on-line account allows you to analyse spend by department or type of mail. You can also order consumables or request service support.

In tune with the needs of the modern office

  • Keep up to date with the latest postal charges - LAN connection allows the latest Royal Mail postal rates to be downloaded directly to a Neopost franking machine.
  • Maximum security - Worried about unauthorised use? A Neopost franking machine can be fully locked and pin protected, so that only authorised users have access.
  • Improve efficiency - Faster processing of outgoing mail helps to streamline your mailroom operation and improve cash flow.

An extra dimension to your marketing

  • Professional-looking business mail - By adding a company name and logo to your outgoing mail you'll reinforce your brand with every item of post you send.
  • Sell yourself - Today, every little helps when it comes to promoting your brand. A Neopost franking machine allows you to add a sales message to mail, helping to boost revenue and generate brand awareness.
  • Keep your mailing lists up to date - free! - Your Neopost franking machine can print your address on all items of post. Royal Mail will return all undeliverable franked mail, so you can update your lists for free.

All this and great savings too!

  • Save up to 30% on mail costs - Mail is cheaper if you frank it rather than stamp it. From April 2011, Neopost franking machines will save users:
