Note: This Franking Machine model has been discontinued but it is still possible to buy a used model - which can be just as reliable but much cheaper than a newer model.
The Pitney Bowes DM55 (formerly K700) is a low-volume franking machine designed for small offices that can frank around 18 envelopes a minute or 50 letters per day. It can also print promotional messages on envelopes alongside the indicia, which provides an excellent method of advertising your business for free on all outgoing mail.
With an on-board 2.5kg weighing platform the DM55 enables accurate postage rate charging each time and preventing over charging. The DM55 also has the same auto date advance feature seen on other Pitney Bowes machines, which helps to streamline workflows by advancing the franked date following your scheduled mail pick up time. This ensures that no mail gets rejected for having the previous days date stamped on it.
You can manually set up the time that the date advances to the following day.
The Pitney Bowes DM55 costs £1,315 to purchase and £20 a month to lease. If you want an extended product warranty included you can pay an extra £30 a year. Ink cartridges cost around £54.95 each and yield about 1100 franks, which is equal to less than 5p per frank.
It is okay for you to look for low-cost compatible DM55 ink cartridges, but just remember that only red, non-florescent ink is approved for use by the Royal mail. Ask an authorized dealer for advice on which compatible ink cartridge is best.
For larger or awkwardly shaped mail labels can be bought for £37.63 although there is no automatic label dispenser so the labels must be fed through the machine manually. Pitney Bowes charges £5.50 for every postage recharge or top up and Royal Mail postal rate updates cost £59.95 each.
