Want to know more about Postal Scales & Meters

Consider the sizes

Some shipping scales can only weigh small packages, while others weigh large loads. The lowest weight range for scales is between 0 and 5 pounds. Medium options range between 5 and 100 pounds, and the highest range can handle from 101 to 1000 pounds. Options that can measure to the smallest units give the best accuracy.

Desktop scales are small enough to sit on a table. Use them to calculate postage charges for letters and small packages. Floor scales are large and need wide, strong platforms. Use these in warehouses or other applications that involve heavy packages. Some of them are free standing and portable, while others need special installation.

Types of postal scales

Postal scales come with various capabilities, which determine the level of accuracy they provide when weighing. Some digital scales feature remote screens that can display the weights to someone in a different location. Some options use the internet to compare postal rates from various companies.

Finish all the mailing work in one station by opting for scales that can connect to postage readers and print out labels. Prevent tampering by protecting such scales with unique passwords.

There are three main variations of scales:

  • Manual scales use a spring mechanism
  • Digital scales display figures on a screen
  • Programmable scales calculate postal charges

Specialized shipping scales

Counting scales are a special kind of postal scale that can count large volumes of identical parts. They make work easier when sending packages that are composed of many parts. Counting scales can also be used for inventory management. Calibrate the scales for precision before weighing packages, and protect delicate objects from damage using bubble mailers.

Preparing packages

Some items use special packaging, for instance, artwork can be sent in mailing tubes. Choose scales that can accurately weigh such packages. Stock scales and other mailing supplies for a seamless flow of tasks. Other important materials for sending out packages include packing paper and envelopes.

Shipping Scales for all needs

Before any product is shipped, its weight needs to be verified. This helps to ensure envelopes and boxes are packed correctly, lets you know approximate shipping costs, and avoids errors. Postal scales are ideal for lightweight objects like letters, while retail products often need heavier scales, depending on their mass. Scales intended for retail use have a digital readout attached to the scale and a gross weighing capacity of under 30 pounds. Industrial shipping scales usually have a separate digital readout that can be mounted in a convenient location.

Postal scale applications

Mail is shipped by weight, so digital postal scales are calibrated in pounds and ounces and accurate to within an ounce. Light-weight scales designed for envelopes don't have the capacity for heavy packages, so higher capacity package scales are needed, often suitable for a maximum weight somewhere between 12 and 30 pounds.

Coin counting scales are a special type of scale where the weight of a single coin is entered and the readout displays the total number of coins in coin envelopes or, in some instances, the value of coins weighed.

Posting

You can make certain your customers know who their mail is from by using custom print envelopes. The inclusion of your business name and return address on the envelope demonstrates professionalism and impresses clients. Using custom printing, you can also print personalized catalog envelopes for direct mailing.

Alternatively, choose business envelopes that use multiple windows to show consignee addresses and your return address. When posting fragile items, consider using shrink film, special shipping boxes, packaging tape, wrapping equipment, and other shipping supplies.

Popular package scales

Before purchasing a scale, evaluate your needs. Establish the smallest package you need to weigh, as well as the heaviest. Select a scale meeting both requirements. Bear in mind that some scales are intended for desk mounting, others on the floor, and yet others are handheld. Each has its strong points, but not all are universally suited to every need. Common types of scales include:

  • Postal scales designed to weigh light objects of a few ounces
  • Proportioning scales which are used the consecutively weigh ingredients for a recipe
  • Desk mounted parcel scales with a weighing capacity between 12 and 30 pounds.
  • Floor mounted scales suitable for heavy packages up to 400 pounds
  • Handheld scales for weighing luggage

Shipping scales come in all sizes. Including mail scales for letters through to postal scales for weighing small parcels for postal delivery. At the other end of the scale, heavy-duty scales can weigh objects of 400 pounds or more and are useful to ensure you load vehicles correctly. Before dispatching mail, make sure to pack it safely using the correct packaging, boxes, pouches, and envelopes.
