Overview Watch the video Is franking for me?

The DM55 weighs your mail and calculates the exact cost of postage at the touch of a button - which will be substantially less than mail paid for by stamps.

Postage rates are automatically updated and you can purchase all the credit you need by telephone.

You can enter a weight manually, have up to ten accounts and stamp incoming mail with the time and date it’s received.

As well as saving time and money on postage, you can also promote your business by printing an appropriate message on every piece of mail that you send. The DM55 allows you to create and amend your own messages using its text facility – so what you’re saying stays relevant to your customers and potential customers, whatever happens in the market place.

Franking FAQs

Is franking suitable for me/ my company?

It’s cost effective and easy to use, with a range of different options – and because you can pay for credit as and when you need it, you’re in complete control of your postage.

Franking machines are used by a wide range of organisations, including large corporations, government organisations and universities - as well as small and medium size businesses and sole traders.

Is there a minimum or maximum amount that I can frank?

No, there are no restrictions on minimum or maximum postage volumes. All the postage discounts that you get for franked mail are on a per item basis, so no matter how much or how little you send - you qualify for discounts on your post.

How do I choose a franking machine?
