The PostBase Mini is part of FP’s PostBase line of postage meters. The PostBase Mini can process up to 17 letters per minute and is perfect for small businesses with light mail volume. It’s the first and only small business meter to include IMI (Intelligent Mail Indicia), the U.S. Postal Service’s most secure postage data and imprinting system.

Adopting PostBase’s award-winning design in a brilliantly small form, the Mini features a color touch screen that makes setup and operations as easy as withdrawing cash on an ATM. PostBase Mini is also quiet as a typical office conversation, making it a perfectly polite office mate.

Key Features:

  • Whisper-quiet operation
  • User-friendly color touch screen control
  • The only meter on the market with IMI security
  • Available high capacity (up to 70 lbs) external scale

Typical Usage:

  1. Letters: The PostBase Mini is a light-volume machine, designed for small businesses that process no more than a few hundred letters per month.
  2. Shipping: When combined with an external scale (via included PC software), the Mini can print postage for packages up to 70 lbs.

How it Works:

The Mini is a fast-operating hand-feed posting machine. When you insert an envelope, the machine holds the envelope, prints the required postage, and then releases the envelope.

Calculating and printing postage is as easy as “1, 2, 3″ with the Mini.

Calculating & Printing Postage
Set the mail type (e.g. “First Class” or “Priority Mail”), place your mail piece on the integrated scale for weighing, and the machine will print the correct postage amount on your envelope or label. You can also manually set any desired postage amount.

Replenishing Postage
Simply tap a couple of buttons on the color touch screen and the Mini will download funds via the Internet from your USPS postage account, which is managed by FP.
