Generic Ink Vs Branded Ink
Royal Mail insists upon the very highest of printing standards for any company that franks its own mail, so it is essential that a company manages to use the best possible equipment.

Franking Machine Health
Franking machines are a significant expense for all companies that choose to purchase them so it makes sense to take care of such an important piece of equipment. If you were to purchase an expensive car you would not fill the engine with cheap fuel and the same goes for franking machines and ink. Cheap generic ink can lead to blocked printer heads and other daily wear and tear issues, leading to costly repairs and downtime or even the need to replace the machine outright.
As FP franking machine ink is designed to work with this kind of equipment, even heavy daily usage does not cause undue damage to the machine.
Printer ink can be extremely toxic to both the environment and staff when used continually over a period of years. It is therefore important to use franking ink that has been properly tested and approved by the EU. FP ink has not only been EU approved but is also recommended by Royal Mail itself so you can be sure that the product you are using is of the highest quality.
