Important - NEW rules from Royal Mail - Centreprint make it easy!
In September 2013, Royal Mail announced that as from 7th November 2014 all Business Reply envelopes and Freepost envelopes must carry a special personalised barcode. After this date, they may reject the envelopes or impose a surcharge. To ensure that your envelopes are future proof, Centreprint will add this barcode to your envelope layout for you and will then submit the mandatory proof to Royal Mail on your behalf.

Low prices
Remember, Centreprint offer FREE printed envelope typesetting and artwork, FREE layout, FREE proofing, FREE origination, FREE mainland delivery and FREE advice.

Royal Mail Business Reply Envelopes - Step 1
Choose the Royal Mail reply service that you require. There are four services available from Royal Mail. These are Business Reply Standard, Business Reply PLUS, Freepost Standard and Freepost PLUS (Freepost means free to the person who posts the envelope, not to you). The Royal Mail PLUS service is cheaper, but is only available for envelopes up to C5 size. Envelopes over this size have to be hand sorted, so must be sent using the Royal Mail STANDARD service.

Royal Mail Business Reply Envelopes - Step 2
If you have not already got one, you'll need a Royal Mail licence. This is easily available and opens an account with Royal Mail to pay for the licence and postage that you will use. You will have to pay a deposit for the postage, but you only charged for postage on each envelope that is posted back to you, so there is no risk or waste. If you already have a Royal Mail Business Reply or Freepost licence, skip to stage 3. Apply for a Royal Mail Business Reply Licence

What's the difference between the Royal Mail Business Reply Standard and Business Reply Plus licences?
The only difference between the Royal Mail Business Reply PLUS licence and the Royal Mail Business Reply STANDARD licence is that with the "plus" licence, Royal Mail charge you (currently) 6p LESS in postage. This is your 'reward' for using standard size machine sortable envelopes, such as our standard size DL or C5. The reason is that the 'Plus' service envelopes do not need to be sorted by hand, which saves Royal Mail money, which they pass on to you.

WARNING Business Reply or Freepost envelopes larger than C5 size (162mm x 229mm) CANNOT be used on the PLUS licence as these have to be hand sorted. If you need to use C4 envelopes, make sure that you apply for the STANDARD licence. If not, always apply for the PLUS licence as this will save you money.
Further details are available on the Royal Mail website.

See Royal Mail advice pages on Business Reply Plus or Business Reply Standard for more details.
