How Registered Post Imprint works

Registered Post items have an Article ID and a two-dimensional barcode. When the barcode is scanned, 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, making it easy to track the status of multiple items at once.

Pricing

The charge for Registered Post Imprint includes postage to anywhere in Australia, as well as the Registered Post fee. Items are delivered according to our Regular timetable. For faster delivery you can choose Priority delivery.

1 If the recipient is not home, the article will be taken to the nearest Post Office and a card will be left for the recipient to collect the article. If the address on the article is a PO Box number, a card will be left for the recipient to pick up and sign for the article at the nearest Post Office. A return address is a condition of lodgement for all Registered Post articles.

2 The number of tracking scans will vary depending on how and where the envelope is lodged, processed and delivered. The envelope may receive a tracking scan: at a processing facility, if processed by automated mail processing equipment; or on delivery, where a tracking scan can be captured. Delivery status reporting is only available to Registered Post Imprint customers where articles use 2D barcodes.
