The franking machine came into existence in 1884 by Norwegian, Engle Frankmussler. That being said, you sure can tell where the term FRANKING was coined from. The very first and the early machine were called “Postage Stamp Affixing Machine”, which was invented to solve the problem of security and unreliable payment system been used by the post office over a long time
The primary purpose of a franking machine is to offer businesses and entrepreneurs a means of sending their mails in a cheaper and more efficient way by saving effort when it comes to circulating mass letters and packages. It saves a business owner the stress of sticking stamps onto individual letters and parcels and queuing at the post office with bundles of envelopes to be weighed.
