Tips • 30th May, 18 • 0 Comments



For all postal products including print, fold, frank, copy and scan in one place FP Mailing L&C can help. We like to make client experiences easier which is why we call monthly to keep in touch and discuss any queries, and why we also regularly compile quick tips and advice through our blog. In this article we show you how to be savvy with postage.


Be barcode ready

You may already be aware, but if not, postage has become more digital in the last few years and Royal Mail Mailmark is the most efficient way to mark your postage – the 2D barcode technology provides access to tracking your letter or parcel and allows for more accurate reporting.


Keep your direct mail safe around the world

Every year, Royal Mail sort and deliver more than 1 billion parcels in the UK alone (wow!) and have cultivated trusted partnerships with a multitude of local mail providers from the USA to UAE. In Europe, they operate through General Logistics Systems (GLS), which is one of Europe’s largest parcel delivery networks, so you can trust in Royal Mail to keep your packages safe if your business delivers overseas.


If you’re running late…

Have no fear – there is a wide variety of letter and parcel delivery options including Royal Mail Sameday parcels (UK only) and Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed (UK only) which provides guaranteed delivery at 9am or 1pm next working day along with online tracking and proof of delivery with signature plus online delivery confirmation.


Stay in touch with your postage

Mailmark offers postal tracking but if you don’t frank with Mailmark, Royal Mail have many options to help monitor your postage including Royal Mail’s Tracked 24, Tracked 48 and Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed. These delivery options plus others help keep tabs on your parcels for you so you can locate your postage online. However, it’s not just Royal Mail who can help with tracking you mail; our very own FP Mailing customer portal DiscoverFP can track your mail and offers 24 hour support with guides and FAQ’s; for more on the benefits of our new online portal see our recent blog.
