About FP Ink

FP, or Francotyp Postalia as it was known until 20 years ago, have been manufacturing franking machines and supporting business growth and development since 1923. Innovation has been at the heart of the FP operation since the beginning developing the first automatic franking machine, the first digital franking machine, the first electronic franking machine and the first inkjet franking machine. In recent years they have also added the world’s first multi-carrier franking machine to meet the new deregulated age.

All machines are manufactured in Berlin Germany, while the company itself is run from their headquarters in Kent.

FP franking ink is widely considered to be of the very highest quality and their huge customer base would suggest that their products are also reliable and offer value for money in a competitive industry.

Do you already have a franking machine?



Franking Ink Range

From what we've already mentioned, it should come as no surprise to hear that FP-branded franking ink is consistently among the top selling Franking supplies. This is thought to be for various reasons, such as the high quality of products that they offer. What is less well known is their terrific range of ink products that are franking specialised, something not all ink suppliers provide.

Costs

FP's franking ink is a high-quality product and its price range reflects this with top of the range cartridges costing in excess of £400. It would be difficult to call any FP product entry level but some FP ink cartridges are available for the much more affordable price of £90. Although on the face of it this may seem expensive, the quality of ink, together with cartridges that seem to last for an eternity, means that FP franking ink is a lot more affordable than you might think.

Generic Ink Vs Branded Ink

Franking Standards

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. Many companies that cut corners on ink become unstuck when their mail is rejected for being unclear or of poor quality so it makes sense to spend the extra money on supplies from highly regarded companies such as FP franking machine ink.

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.
