Free Royal Mail Cardboard Parcel Measuring Template

Found 29th Apr 2013
Using the link within this deal you can order a free Royal Mail Cardboard Parcel Measuring Template directly from Royal Mail. These are the same as the ones used in the post office but are made out of cardboard instead of plastic and have measuring slots for Letter, Large Letter and Small Parcel. This is mainly aimed at business customers and asks for a company name when filling out order form however you can simply put N/A in that field. It should take around a week for the size template to arrive. Hopefully it should arrive as all users on ebay forums who have ordered them so far have said they have come. These are a great way to make sure your parcel fits the criteria for the new small parcel size.

Thank you!

awesome thanks, hope they send it to me

I ordered one of these and it honestly makes life much easier for ebayers..you dont need to be a business to order..just make up any business name and they will send it you..i received it within 14days..

Thanks jordanc93. Ordered, I hope it fits through my letterbox.

Cheers, very useful

Their new prices makes them massively uncompetetive for anything other than a simple letter, don't bother with this, just remember 5mm and 100g max, if over that use someone else.

You could get this and cut out the other 2 useless measurements though i guess lol

Try parcel2go.com or parcelmonkey.co.uk or just type parcel on Google search and other options will no doubt appear. Hermes also an option.

I posted a link for this a month ago within my Ebay thread here,can't believe someone paid for one OMG lol

Large letter rate is still the cheapest with RM,it's the parcel prices that are a worry.

Great. Thank you

Ordered thanks!

Made one myself for work (ebay) but this will be very useful. Cheers!

I wonder how much they charge themselves for postage :P

It's too flimsy I find,needs laminating or something.

after watching last nights despatches programme re how royal mail sorting office handles or kicks parcels around in there sorting office i think i give royal snail a miss in future

Thanks!

I've just printed this out and pasted onto some stiffer card, it is to 1:1 scale isn't it?

The company that dispatches filmed mis-handling mail was uk mail not royal mail.. but no doubt royal mail is heading the same way... once they sell it to private company there wont be no more "Royal" about it..

The template is sent folded so will definitely fit through letterbox... but it is cardboard so a bit flimsy..

Don't think you watched the right program then or just made up who you wanted it to be... it was UK Mail that was on the show, not Royal Mail.

Although with the privatisation of the Royal Mail prices will shoot up and chances are, services will drop in standards.

Nice, been after one of these, thanks!
