Cheaper postage

Are you still paying full price for stamps? Or did the franking machine rep sell you the “cheapest possible” way to post a letter at 30% off stamp prices? There is better way, a cheaper way.  A way that could result in you saving up to 40-60% per item. And you don’t even have to stuff your own envelopes… after all, couldn’t you be doing something far more productive?

How does it work? What’s the catch? No catch. FBI Direct benefits from massively reduced postage costs from our suppliers because we post over ten million items per year. We pass those benefits on to you. To start achieving discounts, the minimum number of items to post in one run is just 100. The more you post, the higher the discounts. And if you are posting more than 100 items at a time it might be worth considering using our print and mailing services. We guarantee you will find that it is cheaper to get FBI to print and stuff your envelopes than if you do them yourselves. Freeing up you and your staff to do more productive things, to make you more money!

There are also massive discounts for large letters and parcels. Please ask us for details.
