 Francotyp-Postalia Austria, a subsidiary of the global FP Group, is set to launch FP webpost and become the pioneering force behind the use of hybrid mail in Austria. The term hybrid mail simply refers to the process of sending an electronic file that is then delivered as a conventional letter. This offers significant advantages: Conventional letters still command a high level of attention among recipients even in the age of increasing digital communication and therefore remain an attractive communication medium for many senders. At the same time, the sender not only saves time and money, but helps conserve the environment as well.

Users can register an account at and post all their letters in digital form. Francotyp-Postalia Austria offers this service to business customers and private individuals who wish to post just a single letter. The letter is printed and sealed in a printing centre located close to the recipient. The innovative software solution was developed by FP subsidiary iab in Germany.

“With this new service, we are continuing to expand our market position by offering modern, forward-looking solutions,” explains Anton Kosar, Managing Director of Francotyp-Postalia GmbH in Austria. Following the positive experience gained in Germany, the innovative software solution was successfully launched in the UK and Belgium last year. Now customers in Austria can avail of a fast, cost-effective and environmentally friendly method of sending their letters.
