Things to Consider When Choosing a Postage Meter for Your Small Business
There are several things you want to keep in mind, as you evaluate a postage meter for your small business.
Depending on what your needs are some postage meters may be better than others. However, there are a few details that make operating some postage meters easier and less expensive than others.
“All-in-one” Postage Meters
Some companies advertise very cheap monthly pricing; however, especially for small businesses, when you start calculating the “total cost of ownership” (TCO), additional costs necessary to use those services add up quickly. If all you are getting is a meter, you also have to keep in mind that you’ll need a separate scale, a printer that is compatible with that meter, and any other accessory needed to operate your postage system. Make sure your business selects an “all-in-one” postage meter.
Thermal printers vs. ink printers
If your small business has a postage meter, it needs a way to print indicia (that’s the name of “stamp” you print out with your machine). Often, companies do not supply a printer, but suggest the purchase of a thermal printer, because there is not ink to buy. While thermal printers can be purchased relatively inexpensively, remember that they can’t print indicia directly on an envelope, and that each thermal paper label is many times more expensive than a traditional label. When you add the cost of thermal paper, the savings realized with a thermal printer vs. an ink printer will vaporize in a month or less.
The FP PostBase Mini (and many other FP postage meters) use inexpensive traditional ink that is integrated with the postage meter; this setup allows you to save potentially hundreds of dollars, over the span of just a few weeks, and ensures that there are less peripherals attached to your mailing system, making operation a breeze.
Faster mailing processes
The best thing about a postage meter is the fact that it saves you time and money. This is achieved by automating tasks and processes that used to be manual. Make sure the postage meter you choose does the things that you consider most time-consuming: not only applying indicia and stamps, but also sealing, processing, sorting, and even inserting letters, invoices or other content in the envelope!
Automatic pricing updates
From time to time, the United States Postal Service updates terms and rates. This can be bothersome and create problems, if the postage meter you choose is not able to automatically receive and install these updates. The FP PostBase Mini allows you to choose whether you want to control updated rates manually or automatically, providing the highest degree of flexibility.
