The hobby of stamp collecting may ultimately disappear as printing postage at the office or at home becomes the norm.
Inefficiently run businesses still make the trek to the post office to buy stamps, but forward-thinking businesses have tapped into ways to print postage at work.
Although postage printing is a fast-evolving area, the most popular way to print postage from the office is by leasing a postage meter.
Postage meters allow businesses to print postage easily at the office, without having to ever visit the post office.
Postage meters help you speed your mailings and give you the cost controls you need for your business.
With a postage meter at the office, you can conveniently print postage for your mail or packages right from your place of business.
What is a Postage Meter?
Postage meters are postage printing machines or systems for your home or office. Meters print postage directly onto your mailpieces or onto an approved label, which you affix to your mailpiece.
Getting a postage meter gives business owners a convenient, easy way to print postage for all mail services except periodicals. That means you can print postage for First-Class Mail, Priority Mail, Express Mail, Package Services, International Mail, and Presorted First-Class Mail Services.
Where to Get Postage Meters
There are a number of authorized postage meter vendors. You can find them online. Search for phrases like "small business postage meters" or "small business postage machines" in your favorite search engine.
It's a good idea to try before you buy. Many postage meter vendors will offer a free trial, so you can make sure that the postage meter in question meets your organization's needs.
