    So currently we send someone to the post office almost everyday to send out tax returns etc.

    I'm looking into a diffrent solution that might be more cost effective.

    2 Choices are
    Pitney Bowes Postage meter
    or stamps.com

    anyone have experience with either one?

    so a pitney bowes rep suggested this machine
    Small Office Postage Meter - Post Perfect | Pitney Bowes

    at 25 bucks a month
    then each ink cartridge is 50 bucks and does approx 2100 impressions
    postage can be printed directly on envelopes, but if you are mailing a package you need to print it on labels, which cost 45 bucks for 300

    they give you a scale, and a chart, so you weigh each piece, figure out the postage, then enter it into the machine to get the postage

    and everytime you need to add postage to your machine it costs you 10 bucks

    and you get to sign up for a one year contract

    what a shitty deal

    btw, you know stamps are going up to 41 cents? what a crock of shit!!

    but onto your question, try the postage meter. that way you will know if you have the correct postage or not on your pisece of mail you are going to send out.

    yea, i read that when postage rates change they charge you to update your software, so i asked if they charged and they said no, we send you a new chart... wtf

    we already have a scale and you can calculate postage free on usps.com
    and the post office calculates and prints postage for free in the office
