Automatically save at least 3¢ on every letter.

While postal rates are increasing, the good news is that postage meter users will automatically save on every class and size of letter mail when compared to the price of paper stamps.  The minimum savings of 3 cents on every letter you prepare using the postage meter can quickly add up to big savings.  There are even greater savings if you are preparing and sending mixed mail of various weights and sizes to domestic and international destinations, including USA.
