PC Postage - Dated

 

Some examples of PC meter postage are printed using a normal PC printer (laser or inkjet) and some on special proprietary printers.  Accounting of postage used is accomplished with a PC program that is linked to the Vendor via the internet.  The indicia is dated (for most classes of postage) for use on the day of printing. At this writing during the summer of 2006 it appears that the Neopost offerings in the area are no longer available. 

Some of these illustrations are taken from the United States Postage Meter Stamp Catalog, Update 2001 and Updates published in the Meter Stamp Society Quarterly Bulletin.
