FP Mailing Solutions is a leading provider of postage meters and mailroom solutions in the United States.

Postage meters are electronic devices that allow businesses to print postage directly onto outgoing mail, eliminating traditional stamps. FP USA offers a range of postage meters tailored to small, medium, and large businesses.

Here are some key features and benefits of FP mailing systems:

  1. Time and cost savings:

    Postage meters help businesses save time and money by streamlining mailing processes. With a postage meter, you can weigh your mail, calculate postal rates, and automatically stamp it onto envelopes or labels. This eliminates the need for manual stamp application and reduces the chances of overpaying or underpaying for postage.

  2. Convenience and efficiency:

    FP USA postage meters offer convenience and efficiency in managing your mail operations. They can handle various mail types, including letters, flats, and packages. Many models feature automatic feeders and sealers, allowing you to process mail quickly and efficiently.

  3. Accurate postage calculation:

    Postage meters have built-in scales that precisely weigh your mail pieces. The meter is connected to a secure server that updates rates and automatically downloads regularly. Automatic downloads ensure accurate postage calculations based on your mail’s weight, size, and destination.

  4. Customized messaging and branding:

    Some FP USA postage meters allow you to print customized messages, company logos, or promotional graphics on your envelopes or labels. This feature enhances brand visibility and adds a professional touch to your outgoing mail.

  5. Account management and reporting:

    FP USA provides online account management tools to track and monitor your postage expenses. You can view detailed reports, track postage usage by department or project, and easily allocate costs for billing purposes.

  6. USPS compliance:

    FP USA postage meters are approved by the United States Postal Service (USPS) and meet all regulations and requirements. This ensures that your mail pieces will be accepted without issues and have accurate USPS postal rates.

  7. Additional services:

    FP USA offers additional services to complement its postage meters, such as mailroom software solutions, shipping services, and mailroom consulting. These services can optimize mailroom operations and improve efficiency.

The speed of FP postage meters can vary based on factors like the model, configuration, and complexity of the mailing task. Entry-level models may have lower processing speeds, typically ranging from 10 to 30 letters per minute.

Mid-range and high-end models from FP are designed for higher mail volumes and can handle processing speeds ranging from 30 to 150 letters per minute or more. These models often use advanced features such as automatic feeding, weighing, and sorting to enhance efficiency.
