How do I send franked mail?

Sending franked mail differs slightly from sending stamped mail. Information on sending your franked mail will be found in your Franking License when you buy or lease a Franking Machine from EPS. You can download a copy of the license from the Royal Mail website, but for your convenience, here are a few guidelines:

 

  • You must sort your mail by Class, then put it into a pouch which you can then put into a Business Post Box, have it collected as part of your normal Business Collection or take it your nearest Post Office or Mail Centre.
  • You must post your franked mail on the date shown, before the last collection time.
  •  

Your mail can be sent in the following ways:

 

  • First Class machinable mail pouch, filled with correctly orientated letters, sorted into different pouches for each format.
  • First Class traditional style pouch with mail sorted into different pouches for each format.
  • Second Class traditional style pouch with mail sorted into different pouches for each format.

 

Pouches, trays and containers are provided to you free of charge when you contact your local Mail Centre.
