Indicia Testing Stage 1
Once you have designed your Customer Access Indicia as per the Positioning Guide and Section 3 of the relevant Access User Guide, please send a to-scale hard copy proof to the address below:
185 Farringdon Road
This hard copy proof check ensures that you do not print out test cards that we know will be rejected by Royal Mail sorting machines.
PLEASE NOTE: Royal Mail cannot approve the designs via a PDF file format as the dimensions may not be accurately replicated.
Indicia Testing Stage 2:
Once the proofs have been approved by Royal Mail, you will need to create a minimum of 100 test cards per design submitted and for each format of mail. We will confirm the dimensions for the test cards and the address for the testing as part of the approval process.
Indicia Testing Stage 3:
Once you have produced your test cards, they will need to be sent to Royal Mail for operational testing. Please note that this process could take up to four weeks from when Royal Mail receives the test cards.
