3rd December 2012 Blue Franking Ink Changeover

Together Kane Mailing Systems Ltd and Royal Mail are migrating all customers with a SMART franking machine to franking with blue ink instead of the current red ink. This is happening following the successful tests on blue ink which demonstrated an improvement in mail machine readability.

Kane Mailing Systems Ltd and Royal Mail are keen to utilise this advancement alongside the latest technology in franking – SMART franking machines, to support our joint drive to maximise efficiency of dealing with your all your mail.

Royal Mail’s approval, means that they’ve tested our ink thoroughly and using our ink therefore means you can be sure that their systems will recognise and sort your mail efficiently whether it’s letters, Special Delivery, packets or International that you are sending.

Confirmation of our approval and more details regarding this can be found on the Royal Mail website at

This change will be undertaken in a transitional approach so no panic necessary. We currently have Royal Mail approved blue ink in stock for most models and can ship next day.
