Mailmark™ - what is it?

The privatization of the Royal Mail brought about many changes including the launch of a brand new product with a lower postage tariff than can be achieved via a SMART franking machine.

This NEW product is called Mailmark and it will always be the lowest cost tariff for sending any single franked letter.

A new generation of franking

The Royal Mail has invested £70m in automating their distribution center’s to allow the reading and tracking of the new Mailmark 2D Barcode.

The barcode contains machine readable information on the user and the mail piece. Royal Mail already captures this information for wholesale and retail customers to provide online reporting and analytics. Royal Mail are working with partners to determine how this information will be used for franking machine customers.

Do I have to switch to Mailmark?

Over time all business mail will carry the Mailmark barcode. Royal Mail will continue to process existing franking formats for a period after Mailmark became available (April 2014) so you don’t have to do anything.

By switching to a Mailmark machine you will always have access to the lowest tariffs and you are prepared for the future.
