"Postage $aver has been a huge time saver. My first two bulk mail efforts (1990 and 7200 items) went to the post office error free. The postal clerk even commented that my mailing was more organized than some he had seen from "professional" mailers."
Mike Price
Team Lead

"I just finished submitting my first automated mail. Postage $aver made it a piece of cake, and saved us 20 percent on our mailing costs! Postage $aver paid for itself the first time I used it."
