Want to know more about Postal & Utility Scales

What Are Postal Scales?

Shipping scales can be used to weigh items like food, jewelry, and more. Before any product is shipped, its weight needs to be verified. Mailing scales help to ensure envelopes and shipping boxes are packed correctly, let you know approximate shipping costs, and avoid errors.

Mail is shipped by weight, so postal scales are calibrated in pounds and ounces and accurate to within an ounce. Many package scales have unique features that improve their functionality. Quill carries a variety of shipping scales with different weight capacities so you can find one that will meet the needs of your office’s mailroom needs.

What Factors Should You Consider Before Purchasing Mailing Scales?

Before purchasing a shipping scale, evaluate your needs. Establish the smallest package you need to weigh, as well as the heaviest. Select a postal scale meeting both requirements. Bear in mind that some scales are intended for desk mounting, others on the floor, and yet others are handheld. Each has its strong points, but not all are universally suited to every need.

Light-weight shipping scales designed for envelopes don't have the capacity for heavy packages, so higher capacity package scales are needed, often suitable for a maximum weight somewhere between 12 and 30 pounds. Retail products often need heavier scales, depending on their mass. Other postal scales have a weight capacity of anywhere between 600 to 1,000 pounds, which is necessary for warehouse use.

View Quill’s selection of mailroom supplies and equipment to purchase labels, letter fold machines, and more.

What Are the Characteristics of Package Scales?

Shipping scales intended for retail use have a digital readout attached to the scale. Industrial postal scales usually have a separate digital readout that can be mounted in a convenient location. Other scales have automatic shut-off features which save users power and energy. Some package scales have dual power options, which prevents users from having to locate an outlet.

What Types of Utility Scales Are Available?

Common types of mailing scales include:

  • Postal scales designed to weigh light objects of a few ounces
  • Proportioning scales are used the consecutively weigh ingredients for a recipe
  • Desk-mounted parcel scales with a weighing capacity between 12 and 30 pounds.
  • Floor-mounted scales suitable for heavy packages up to 600 pounds
  • Handheld scales for weighing luggage
