With only five companies authorized to provide postage meter leasing in the United States, competition is fierce.
FP Mailing Solutions has carved out its niche by providing its customers with an extensive coast-to-coast network of independent dealers, by offering peerless customer support, and by helping businesses of all sizes realize the benefits of metered postage.
Each of the machines below can be combined with other FP products, including automated folder-inserters, folding, tabbing, labeling and stamping machines, external postal scales, label printers, and envelope openers. These are the top FP mailing solutions by business category.
Best for Home Business: FP PostBase mini
A 17 letter per minute processing speed makes this miniature marvel a great fit for home offices and solopreneurs.
Unobtrusive, quiet, and efficient, the FP PostBase mini is ideal for businesses that want the savings afforded by metered postage but only need to process a very low volume of mail. It measures only 12.2″ x 8.1″ x 9.1″, but with a 17 letter per minute speed, built-in touch screen, built-in five pound scale, and RemoteOne software that allows for postage refills and account management via PC, this compact solution is clearly no lightweight.
Best for Low Volume: FP PostBase econ
With a small size, big features, and easy hardware and software expansion, the FP PostBase econ punches well above its weight.
The FP PostBase econ is ideal for small businesses sending a small-to-moderate volume of mail daily. It's small enough for a desktop, attractive enough to blend with any office decor, and is compatible with a range of add-ons from sealers to a tablet docking station.
It's secure thanks to USPS IBIP compliance, and it's versatile enough to fit a wide range of businesses from home offices to landscapers and small medical practices. Capable of handling bills, postcards, promotional mailings and more, the PostBase econ saves time and money, delivering benefits that go beyond its 20 letter per minute speed.
Best for Moderate Volume: FP PostBase semi
Small and steady wins the race. Choose hand-feed or automated models to give your small business even more flexibility.
The PostBase semi is for businesses which handle a small volume of mail but need the flexibility to handle spikes in demand, or that handle a steady and substantial volume of mail.
The semi handles a maximum of 45 LPM, includes a ten-pound scale, and provides 20 standard user accounts, ten user presets, 20 custom indicia advertisements, and ten custom text messages. You can connect it to a Dell All-in-One PC running MailOne software to give your business even more options.
Best for High Volume: FP PostBase integra
If your business has a high volume of mail — and a need for speed — the FP PostBase integra gives you the ability to process over 5,000 pieces per hour.
The FP PostBase integra sits atop the PostBase lineup. Capable of processing 110 letters per minute, it's best for businesses that move a high volume of mixed mail. It's a strong contender for small businesses, especially those that frequently handle mixed mailings, but is also fast and robust enough to suit the needs of larger organizations, nonprofits, school systems, and utilities.
It boasts a standard automatic feeder/sealer, 15lb integrated scale, up to 100 standard accounts, custom indicia, custom text messages, and up to 20 presets.
Best For Extreme Use: FP PostBase one
When volume, time and speed are of the essence, the PostBase one comes to the rescue with a market-leading 140 LPM speed.
Sometimes even small businesses have big postage needs. The PostBase one can handle a very high volume of mail daily. It handles 150 letters per minute. Its vertical feed and carefully designed paper path keeps jams to a bare minimum, while the capability to handle mixed types of mail eliminates presorting.
This machine handles postcards, catalogs, and everything in between. Enhanced security, add-ons, and software make this a formidable performer that can give your mailroom a significant boost in efficiency. For these reasons, the FP PostBase one is the best FP mailing solution for businesses with very high mailing needs.
