Still Time to Beat the 'Stampede' Says Pitney Bowes

(April 20, 2012)

HARLOW, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 04/20/12 -- Following news that the price of first and second class stamps will each rise by 14p at the end of the month, panic buying of stamps has swept the UK.

However, Pitney Bowes urges calm, advising that many companies can make immediate savings by using a franking machine, even if they are mailing just a handful of letters a day.

Users of franking machines will enjoy discounts of 38% on second class letters and 26% on first class letters once prices rise. They will also avoid having to hoard stamps which ties up money and creates security issues.

In addition to significant instant time and money savings, metered mail also delivers a range of benefits such as better 'open rates' and presents a more professional image to customers, as well as enabling users to access a range of other bulk mailing discounts.

Pitney Bowes has published comprehensive advice online at as well as offering specific product options suitable for small and micro businesses.
