The Benefits of In-House Mailing Equipment

By Higher Information Group on January 16, 2023 | Office Solutions

If you’re looking for ways to improve efficiencies and cut costs (aren’t we all?), you’ve probably checked in all the normal places. You’ve found affordable printers, business supply sources and more. But, what about how you send your mail? Have you considered bringing mailing equipment in-house? If you’re considering options for your current business, or, looking for ways to fully equip a new business location, in-house mailing equipment should probably fall high on your priority list.  Check out a few of the many benefits, below.

Time is Money

Any time your team puts into any project or initiative comes at a cost, whether its clear cut or hidden. When someone needs to run to the post office for large mailing initiatives, it cuts into their productivity. Bringing mailing equipment in-house eliminates wasted time that could be better spent on other projects.

Postage Discounts

With in-house mailing equipment, your business may qualify for commercial shipping rates and discounts. This could save you up to 5 cents on every stamp and up to 40% on priority mail labels you print in-house. This kind of savings could add up over time, allowing you to invest in other potential areas of growth or to target a larger potential audience for mail campaigns.

Easy Record-Keeping

By working with a professional mailing equipment vendor, you may be able to track expenses with ease using reporting software and data. Knowing where and when your money is being spent – through actual mailing campaigns, their printing and beyond – could be beneficial when allocating and creating future budgets and plans.


If you rely on rolls of stamps, or, on sending employees to the post office, you cannot be sure your budget is all going toward essential business initiatives. Because in-house mailing equipment can be password protected, you can better track the mailing process at all points.

Multiple Equipment Options

Mailing equipment is far from one-size-fits-all. By working with a team that understands your needs, you can be matched with mailing equipment that meets your needs, instead of shopping around solo or attempting to research it on your own. From simple meters to high-volume, commercial-level machines, there’s equipment to match your specific mailing habits and needs.

You Don’t Need to Sacrifice Great Support

If you’ve been leery of bringing mailing equipment in-house because of the support and/or expertise you’ll need to get started, now’s a great time to overcome those hesitations. 

When working with a team like Higher Information Group to bring mailing equipment in-house, you can partner with a knowledgable team able to support and service your machines, without putting extra duties on your in-house IT team. It really is possible to experience great benefits without extra stress.

If it sounds like a great fit, that’s because it probably is. Your team can focus on what matters most while your in-house mailing equipment helps drive better efficiency while lowering standard mailing expenses and costs.
