    DO you guys use these, or just put a stamp on out going mail.......

    Getting a few customers now and it seems I'm spending about 1 hrs putting stamps on envelopes

    I buy a roll of stamps and put 'em on 100 envelopes while I'm watching TV unwinding. The I have a bunch of stamped envelopes ready to go anytime I need one.

    Stamps are actualy faster. I used to have a postage metor , You would prepay a certain ammount and be good to go. Then they started financing and would bill you. I did a postage refill with $200 in my account and they automaticly financed it and charged me like 18% interest. I called and lit them up for hawking it while the whole time I had my money just sitting there. After that I went back to stamps.

    You'll like it even better after you try it - it's such a joy to just grab an envelope and have it be ready to address without the hassle of "where are the stamps?".

    We have a meter... throw the envelopes on one side and finished sitting in the tray when you come back. We mail out about 300-400 per month with invoices and checks and I got tired of having to stand in line to by rolls of stamps. It's only $70 per quarter for the machine and you reload the machine when you need more stamps and they draft your account for just the stamps that you order typically $100.00 worth at a time.
