Frank At Home

The humble franking machine has been aiding businesses since the early 1900s, helping countless people with their post along the way. Thanks to new technology, and an increased need for fast efficient posting, the franking machine has recently made a huge resurgence. Now, with a sleeker look and a technical redesign that would make NASA proud, the franking machine is winning its way back into our hearts and into our homes.

In years gone by you would never have dreamt of owning a franking machine for your own personal mail; machines like these were reserved for high flying businesses and corporate companies. Now you can own a little of the corporate world for yourself as the franking machine is winging its way into thousands of homes all across the country. One of the best things about owning your own personal franking machine is the sheer convenience it gives you. No more popping to the shops to buy postage or sending that letter out late because you didn’t have the right size of stamp. With a franking machine you can simply apply your postage direct to your mail, in the comfort of your own home.

Apart from the obvious convenience, there are plenty of other benefits to owning a franking machine. Saving money is often one of the main considerations for anyone looking to invest in a home franking machine and, thankfully it does just that. The Post Office happily discounts franked mail as it is preferable to them to have the mail already franked and accounted for, making their job a lot easier. Over time these savings can add up dramatically and, with an added weight scale, you can evaluate all your costs in advance before paying out any money.

Keeping a machine like this in the home is perfect for special occasions such as Christmas, Easter and birthdays as you can happily send out all your cards with very little hassle. After spending all that time lovingly sealing all your cards you can just sit back and watch the savings rack up before your eyes. A franking machine can also be a godsend for wedding planning as the sheer volume of invitations you require can take up a lot of your energy so franking can be a quick and effective way to save time. You can also frank your return envelopes so your guests don’t have to fork out for the stamps themselves.

Home franking machines can also be great for small business set ups as you can save both time and money on posting. Franking also gives your post a professional looking edge so your clients are none the wiser that you are squirreling away in the comfort of your own home.

Owning your own franking machine can be a godsend when you have a ton of post but more importantly it can save you precious time and money that will be better spent on other things.
