It's that time of the year again for the release of Royal Mail Prices for the next 12 months and yet again we see a rise
in the cost of stamp prices. The price of a 1st Class stamp will increase by 3p to 70p and the price of a 2nd Class stamp
will increase by 3p to 61p from 25th March 2019.
However, all is not doom and gloom as the savings through Standard Franking and Mailmark Franking are greater than
they have ever been. It couldn't be a better time to start Franking if you haven't already. If you already are, but don't
have a Mailmark ready machine, then it's time for you to upgrade and take advantage of the savings that come with it!
Below is a simple table that shows you based on the amount of letters that you send every month, how much money
you could save against traditional post methods:

As you can see the savings are quite significant if you aren't already using a Franking Machine. However, if you are
already using a Franking Machine but it isn't a Mailmark ready machine, then you are missing out on the following savings:
