5 Mailroom Supplies and Equipment

1. MailMark Franking Machine

Among the most critical mailroom supplies and equipment is the MailMark franking machine. This is a must-have for any business that sends out regular mail. Mail franking saves money, improves accuracy, encourages customer response, and increases mailroom efficiency. Sending out business mail any other way just doesn't make sense.

IMS is proud to be a certified MailMark dealer. All our franking machines are designed to work seamlessly with Royal Mail's MailMark platform for easy and efficient business mail. We have a range of machines for businesses of all sizes.

2. Franking Labels

Using a mail franking machine dictates that your mailroom has plenty of labels on hand. The last thing you need is to begin a mail run only to discover you do not have enough labels to get the job done. Everything must stop until more labels can be acquired, which can sometimes be a time-consuming process. Don't run the risk. Make sure you always have enough labels on hand for your next run.

3. Ink Cartridges

Ink cartridges for your franking machine are just as important as labels. More importantly, they may be harder to come by in an emergency. You should always have one or two extra in addition to the cartridge currently in your franking machine.

4. Postal Scale

Higher-end franking machines usually have postal scales built in. If yours doesn't, you need a reliable postal scale to avoid franking errors. Remember that underestimating postage can result in unhappy customers and extra charges against your account. Avoid those charges by ensuring your mail is always weighed accurately and marked accordingly.

5. Postal Tubes

Sometimes you have documents that are too large for envelopes but still cannot be folded. The best solution is a postal tube. A postal tube lets you roll up your documents for easy mailing without fear of damage. Whoever thought of the postal tube is a genius.

Having the right mailroom supplies on hand is key to running your mail operations smoothly and efficiently.
