Q. I’d like to save money and use Ecofranking’s compatible franking inks what is the difference between compatible and genuine franking inks?

Essentially the only difference is the price! Ecofranking's compatible franking cartridges use Royal Mail approved ink and will give the same number of impressions as an Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM ) product.  At Ecofranking we are really keen to reduce our carbon footprint and we can help your business do so too –buying Ecofranking’s remanufactured / refilled franking cartridges and recycled labels really can help your business save money and the environment.


Q. I’ve been told compatible inks and labels will invalidate our franking machine warranty is this true? 

The major franking machine manufacturers insist that you buy their inks and labels directly from them.  However, since the Office of Fair Trading’s (OFT) 2005 agreed undertakings proposed by the two leading franking manufacturers - Pitney Bowes and Neopost combined with Royal Mail. NO franking manufacturer can dictate to their customers who they buy their franking inks and labels from. Also if you are told using compatible franking inks or labels within your franking machine will null invoid your franking machines warranty - this is wrong! The OFT ruling was put in place to stop the monopolisation in the franking industry to protect you as a customer, and give you more choice. This means that you can buy quality compatible franking supplies at a fraction of the cost of OEM franking cartridges / labels



Q. My franking machine supplier came round for our franker’s annual service and noticed we were using a compatible cartridge. The engineer said it had caused a problem with our machine – is this right?


It is very rare for Ecofranking’s compatible or even genuine cartridges to cause a problem in your franking machine.  As the OFT have ruled it is your right to choose to use Ecofranking’s Royal Mail Approved franking inks in your machine and so tell your engineer this. You can ask your engineer to put in writing what the actual fault is and of course if your franking machine has been working perfectly well how can there be a problem. If you have any concerns at all about using Ecofranking’s compatible franking inks / labels please to talk to us on 01434 422600 and we’ll be happy to advise you.


Q. I notice you offer a refill service – how do I order a refill cartridge?


The Refill service can save you even more money and it’s so easy to do. Simply order on line as usual or give us a call on 01434 422600 and as soon as we receive your empty cartridge we can get that refilled for you and sent back within 24 – 48 hours. 



 Q. If I’m not happy with my cartridge do you offer a replacement / money back guarantee?

Q. I’m not sure which cartridge to order can I talk to someone?

Yes you can.
