Tech Tip of the Month

New Table in the Labeling List File

The USPS has added a new table to their Labeling List file.

How does this affect you the customer?

This means the older Labeling List will not work with the new version of MaxPresort OS. Starting March 1, 2022, all customers who want to use the March version of the Labeling List will be required to use MaxPresort OS version 3.3.34 or greater.

Effective April 1, 2022, all customers will have to update their MaxPresort OS to version or greater to continue to be compliant with the USPS and the latest Labeling List files.

February Stamp

Love Stamp

The Love stamp for 2022 celebrates the joy that flowers bring. This stamp is inspired by old European folk art. Flowers can symbolize many things: romance, of course, but also friendship, sympathy, gratitude, and congratulations. Not only are they symbolic and beautiful, but flowers might have more tangible benefits. Studies have shown that flowers can increase happiness, decrease stress, and create a calming atmosphere.
