Metered franking is a way of paying for your letter postage without the need of buying and sticking stamps. Franked mail is done by a machine, called a postage meter or franking machine, owned by a business or company. The cost of the postage is pre-paid and input into the machine remotely from which it is deducted during use. Instead of a postage stamp the machine imprints an insignia mark with date and postage value on the envelopes along with business logo, advertising or customised message. Postage meters are easy to use and very useful for companies of any size even with moderate letter volume adding these five values to your business.
