The Pitney Bowes mailstation K700 might just be one of the most affordable postage meter solutions for a home or small office. It not only saves money over stamps by printing the exact amount of postage necessary, but its inkjet system uses inexpensive Pitney Bowes K700 printer ink to reduce operating costs as well. The device can reach speeds of around 18 letters per minute.
One of the most important features for the unit's target demographic is its small footprint of only 8.4x13.8 inches, which minimizes the amount of space required. In fact, the device is small and light enough to be moved out of the way when it is not in use. The control panel has clearly marked buttons for common tasks, such as "Funds" for refilling postal credits and "Lock" for locking the device to prevent unauthorized use. There is a two-line LCD for showing pertinent information to the user, and it even features an LED light that blinks when the mailstation K700 ink cartridge is getting low.
The minimum media size is 3x5 inches, but there is virtually no maximum, as the unit only needs to print in the top right corner. A maximum thickness of 5/16" is supported, but the manufacturer recommends stick-on labels for thicker media. Users must weigh the pieces separately, which makes the K700 most well-suited to stamping large numbers of pieces that are similar in weight.
The inkjet system used for stamping postage is very efficient, with only a single red Pitney Bowes K700 printer ink cartridge required. In fact, a small amount of mailstation K700 ink is used for each letter, so it can last a long time. Replacing the Pitney Bowes K700 ink requires simply opening the top panel and swapping it out.
For individual users or a small office with a fairly low volume of letters to process, the Pitney Bowes K700 is an excellent combination of essential features, without the high price tag and extra bulk of larger machines. It is simple to set up and easy to use as well, with a compact design that is great for small spaces.
