Mailmark Franking

As you may have heard, Mailmark franking is the brand new service released by Royal Mail. It is a alternative piece of franking technology that can be used in a wide range of postage machines in the UK. It is not mandatory to have in your postage machine, but it is advised to use as it brings many extra franking benefits. However as it is a new piece of technology, not many postage machines are currently Mailmark compliant. Find out more about the new Mailmark service below.


Mailmark Franking is a brand new service that has been released by Royal Mail during 2014. This new service gives businesses a new and improved way to prepare mail so Royal Mail can process mail easier and quicker. The new Mailmark frank is a cheaper and more effective alternative impression to the current frank used by all non compliant machines. Mailmark makes it easier for the Royal Mail to deliver mail and it will benefit any business that uses it.

New 2D Barcode Frank Example - Mailmark Franking

With Mailmark, your postage machine will be able to frank a brand new 2D barcode like the image to the right. Mailmark also allows you to frank the Royal Mail “delivered by” branding as well as the class of mail being sent. This will mean that your mail will look more professional as you can still frank company logo and / or return address. The new 2D barcode will bring many useful benefits, all of which can be seen below.

Mailmark Franking Benefits

As Mailmark franking is a new piece of technology, it will bring with it many useful and incredible extra franking benefits and features that will aid any business with the franking process. However, in order to gain these benefits your current postage machine will need an update from your franking machine supplier. Mailmark franking machines are needed so you can frank the brand new 2D Bar Code onto your mail, and this is what will give your the extra Mailmark Franking Benefits. View them below.
