A royal stamp of approval

Prepaid envelopes are the ideal alternative to affixing stamps or franking, as the supplied envelopes are printed with a unique phosphor stamp which Royal Mail systems identify as prepaid.

As a licensed operator by Royal Mail, we can print 1st or 2nd class phosphor stamps onto a wide range of envelopes; thus creating added value and a distinctive appearance when compared to traditional mail.

The Benefits To You

No Need to Affix Stamps

With prepaid envelopes it already has a postage paid stamp printed onto the envelope, so it avoids the need for affixing traditional stamps or franking post.

Enhanced Mail Appearance

The prepaid stamp design has a distinctive appearance that includes the Queens profile and phosphorous bars, which can help enhance your mailings and improve opening rates.

Avoid Postage Cost Increases

As the postage costs are paid in advance at a set price, you don't need to worry about future postal price increases as you've already paid the postage regardless of when you use the envelopes.

Total Flexibility

Prepaid envelopes give you total flexibility as they can be used as and when required, even if you just want to send one letter, or thousands. Ideal for small campaigns!
