Neopost have been around since 1924 so it is safe to say they know a thing or two about franking machines. What is more, Neopost are one of just 24 companies in Britain supplying and manufacturing machines with the official approval of Royal Mail, and indeed they are just one of four firms actually producing the machines.

Not only that; Neopost are official partners with Royal Mail too so it is also safe to say you can be assured of quality when you purchase or lease a Neopost franking system.

You will have to act quickly however if you want to get your hands on a Neopost IJ25 because they are no longer being produced having been superseded by the latest IS range among others.

The IJ25 is though still available as “used” and even to rent/lease, which makes it an ideal entry level machine if you are a new business starting out or an established one looking to scale down in a search for greater efficiencies in these hard-knock times.

Features Of The Neopost IJ25

Designed for upcoming businesses with an increased reliance and demand for postal services, the IJ25 is compact, lightweight and easy to set up and use.
