How Registered Post Imprint works

Registered Post items have an Article ID and a two-dimensional barcode. When the barcode is scanned, important data is captured about the item as it travels through our delivery network to the recipient.

With our Imprint service, you create your own unique barcode to our specifications and print the imprint onto your envelopes. That way, each item is linked to your account. So you can easily track the status of all your items at once.

Pricing & delivery times

Registered Post items are delivered according to our Regular timetable. For faster delivery you can choose Priority delivery.

The charge for Registered Post Imprint includes postage to anywhere in Australia, as well as the Registered Post fee.
