PostBase Advertisements (ADPLATES)

Our PostBase® postage meters don’t just look good, they make your mail look good too!

Imagine being able to customize your mail without having to purchase extra equipment. That is exactly what we did when we designed our PostBase® line. We incorporated one spot on PostBase® mini, and two spots on our other PostBase® models where you can put one of 8 standard PostBase Advertisements (ADPLATES) or order your own customized ADPLATES.

Adplate designs

PostBase® comes pre-loaded with eight standard ADPLATES

Tell your customers that you love them, show your holiday spirit, or show them patriotic pride. All PostBase models come standard with eight ADPLATES pre-loaded on them, so you start differentiating yourself right away.

You can put your logo on your mail with PostBase® ADPLATES

Enhance your brand by putting your logo on every piece of outgoing mail. That’s right, you can put your logo, catch phrase, mascot, or anything else on your outgoing mail. When you choose a Company Logo ADPLATE, you get to build your brand name with every piece of mail you send out to your customers: invoices, billing statements, postcards, etc. This is low cost advertising for maximum exposure!

You can also order simple text ADPLATES

Use simple lettering and font to promote your company, give a special message, or remind someone of an upcoming appointment. By choosing a Simple Text Ad, you get the freedom to choose what message goes on your outgoing mail.

How to get the ADPLATE on you PostBase® when it is ready

Connect your meter as you normally would for a postage download and press the “REMOTE SERVICES” button from your PostBase® main menu.

When complete, press one of the ad squares in the top-left of the screen. (Typically the squares each show “OFF”, meaning no ad has been assigned.) Select your ad, and it should appear on your PostBase® screen. Any ad showing on the main screen will print with your postage.

The left and right squares print to corresponding left/right positions on the envelope.
