Your guarantee of the lowest postage rates available for your business. Mail and Print is a Mailmark™ enabled Mailing House approved by Royal Mail. Mailmark™ is the Royal Mail’s new barcoding system that provides businesses with additional and more detailed information about their mailings, including:

Location tracking and delivery schedules.  Accurate estimates of when mail will land
Online and custom reporting that provides information on the status of your mail and quality of data.

How Does it Work?

Mailmark™ makes use of both 2D and 4-state barcodes that enable retail and wholesale business customers to access the lowest available postage discounts as well as valuable information about individual mailings. Mailmark™ can be used in conjunction with 90% of machineable letter and large letter mailings including:

Advertising Mail • Sustainable Advertising Mail
Publishing Mail • Business Mail • Business Mail 1st Class

Royal Mail has made significant investments in technology and processes that capitalise on the data within the new barcodes so customers can:

Use the detailed information on errors and returns over a period of time to reduce mailing costs and identify data errors that could save thousands and improve marketing ROI.

Keep track of when their mail enters the mailing system and when it is scheduled to be delivered. This information will be available free of charge via your mailing house or for larger customers via a direct online interface.

Predict when items land so they can allocate resources for example at call centres, or perhaps have items land when a local promotion is taking place.

Franking machines, there seems some confusion about Franking machines and Mailmark™ – so here are some definitions

The Franking machine mailmark – is simply a 2d barcode that incorporates certain data including:

  • Date of posting
  • Price
  • Franking machine number
  • Mailmark for Franking does not include address data information for measuring Royal Mail processing

(This information is stored in a Type 29 2d barcode that DOES NOT include any feedback information from Royal Mail at all, it only feeds back information from the Franking provider, it does not currently report on the location or reading of the mail address data)
