LICK YOUR STAMP HABIT
Hate lining up at the post office? Postage meters are now cheap enough for even the smallest business. Exact postage can save up to 20% in mailing costs, and the new electronic meters can break out use by client or department. Postage refills are available via modem. Pitney Bowes Inc. just set a new low in rental rates with a SOHO machine, but there are rivals. Terms and features vary. Watch for hidden costs such as pricey ink and postage refill charges.
