Postal scales are essential devices in offices or workrooms that send out any type of mail. They help prevent repeat trips to the post office by identifying the weights of different packages and letters and calculating postage. They come in digital and manual models and weigh in varied measurements such as ounces, pounds, and kilograms. In the shipping and mailing supplies section, Staples carries a wide selection of postage scales to help streamline the needs of small and large businesses and homes.

Types of postage scales
Postal scales come in different makes and models with varying features and capabilities. Electronic weight-only scales weigh packages up to 150 pounds and come with large, easy-to-read display screens. The units are heavy-duty stainless steel, which ensures durability and structural integrity in high-traffic workspaces. USB postal scales are lightweight scales and can weigh up to 10 pounds of mail or parcels. They come with a USB portal that allows connection to a desktop or printer and enables the user to print labels or stamps after confirming the accurate weight. 

Consider designs and colors
Most postal scales come in solid colors, such as black and grey. Some models come in a variety of colors and designs that can blend with more modern decor styles easily. Those made with rugged-quality plastic with a stainless-steel platform are sturdy enough to weigh items up to 600 pounds. Most postal scales come with programmed technology that weighs packages and displays warning messages if they encounter an error or the parcel is heavier than its limits. Some come with an additional ribbed steel platform that helps hold the parcel in place. 

Additional user-friendly features
Electronic postage scales come with touch screens that increase user convenience for both small and large-scale weighing. They may come with a platform equipped to accurately weigh packages of varying lengths, heights, and widths. Some electronic models feature an interface that calculates the postal rate and automatically applies the amount as the parcel goes through the meter. Some scales also offer a feature known as rate shop that allows the user to compare other carriers.

Are there unique features?
Some models come with a tare button, which allows the scale only to weigh the contents of the parcel. The feature deducts the weight of the packing material, providing the most accurate weight of the contents. The feature displays the numbers in an easy-to-read font and color such as red or black.

Do postal scales need batteries?
Postal scales come in different models with different power sources. Some designs come with an AC adapter that allows the charging of the device. Some come with an additional feature that automatically switches off the device if unused for long periods. Other designs require batteries like AA or AAA batteries. 

Are they easy to set up?
The devices come with a set of instructions that are user-friendly and guide the setup process. Digital postage scales, for example, come with an easy plug-and-play set up, making them ready for use immediately.
