There are a number of computer programs that calculate and allow you to print postage statements. They range from very simple to complex and are priced accordingly. The United States Postal Service website, www.usps.com, has most postage statements and forms that periodical publishers use. They include postage statements that can be accessed and printed to be completed manually later. They also have a "Postage Statement Wizard." By accessing this you can complete postage statements or forms on line, print and save.
All of the math calculations are done for you and if the numbers you entered do not add up, it will tell you. I have experimented with it and it took me less than five minutes to complete and print a completed form. Even the drop shipment forms(PS Form 8125) are located here.
To access this go to www.usps.com, double click "Find a Form", "Postage Statement Wizard Forms," "Postage Statement Wizard," and select class of mail or plant verified drop shipment and double click continue to complete form. After completion, you may save or print completed form.
If you have any question about using Postage Statement Wizard, contact me at 417-883-4598 or email me at, firstname.lastname@example.org.
