Scales & Stamps
Shipping Scales and StampsPackaging merchandise is only the beginning of the shipping process. Once everything is in the box and packed so as not to shift and the box has been sealed securely with materials that meets the carrier's standards, it still must go through two more steps: weighing and final labeling.
Weighing packages is necessary because many carriers charge by the ounce. Having scales in the mail room allows a company to double check the carriers and make sure no mistakes are made as well as providing a way to calculate shipping costs in advance.
Final labeling is a matter of adding directions like "Rush" or "This End Up." For rare occurrences, these notations can be handwritten, but if these labels are needed often it saves time and effort to acquire self-inking rubber stamps with the appropriate legend.
The last steps in starting a package on its way, weighing and mailing, are nonetheless vital. A way to weigh is a necessiity, and in addition to scales stamps should be in every mail room.
