The trick to running a 10k in your office

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Thu, Jun 4, 2015 @ 13:06 PM


Several months ago, some of the guys in the office talked me into running a 10k race with them. Having never conquered a long distance run before, I had no idea what I signed up for. Ignorance is bliss…or blisters, as it were in my case. I became painfully aware that having the right equipment (aka top-of-the-line, proper fitting running shoes) is a vital factor in successfully completing a 10k – and living to blog about it. 

Which brings me to PSMailers. Many large volume offices like those in healthcare, government, and education run their own 10k of sorts on a daily basis–processing up to 10,000 pressure seal documents in an hour.  For operations of that size, the PSM10K High Volume model is like a premier running shoe. Designed for long runs, this impressive Folder/Sealer system with a 36” Extended Conveyor has a duty cycle of 200,000 sheets per month! Other features include:

  • Hopper Capacity of 500 sheets – keeping productivity high at all times
  • Bottom Feed Technology – makes reloading the documents fast and easy
  • Variable Speed up to 10,000 per hour – to meet high demand
  • Paper sizes up to 8.5” x 14” – for greater flexibility
  • Folds available in C, V, EZ, Z and EC - multiple options for format and messaging

It’s the ideal system for payroll, accounting, billing, and direct mail processing. To quote yet another lyric from The Beatles, “see how she runs”: check out to view a short video demo of this powerful machine in action.  To request additional information, fill out a quick sales form or contact Customer Support at (800) 464-5030,

While it’s unlikely that I will ever run a 10k again, without a doubt the PSM10K High Volume model will run 10k reliably and regularly day after day without wearing out, unlike yours truly.

Yours in blogging and running (and catching his breath),

Release your inner Goldilocks

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Fri, Mar 13, 2015 @ 15:03 PM

W BlogArt Goldilocks

One of my favorite activities in the evening is tucking PSMailers Guy Junior into bed and telling him bedtime stories. The little guy is easy to please, so the other night I recounted the tried-and-true tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. As I sat down later that evening to pen (er, two-finger-type) this blog, it occurred to me that choosing a PSMailers system requires an inner Goldilocks of sorts. A little voice that helps you select the pressure seal self-mailer model that’s juuuust right for your needs.

For example, mid-sized organizations and busy offices poised for growth would find that PSMailers Medium-Volume machines easily satisfy the proverbial fair-haired lass within. Not too big, not too small, PSMailers Medium-Volume systems are designed to handle a demanding load without demanding too much of an organization’s budget or space.

The PSM5000 is a folder/sealer that includes an integrated 18” conveyor and digital counter at no extra cost. This mighty machine handles output of up 5,000 pieces per hour. Not to be outdone, the PSM7000 system with conveyor lives up to its name, processing 7,000 sheets per hour. Even Little Red Riding Hood would be impressed! Both models handle paper sizes up to 8.5” x 14” and a variety of fold styles, including C, V, EZ, Z and EC.

See the home page for more product specs and videos of each Medium-Volume model in action. And contact us to get your copy of our PSMailers Capabilities Brochure (W-PSE-D). If you don’t, I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll…


Just kidding. Until next time, sweet dreams!

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Tue, Jan 20, 2015 @ 15:01 PM


Okay, I’ll admit it. I am not really the Walrus…that was a cheap ploy to get your attention (and to work another Beatles reference into this blog). But now that I have your attention, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that required tax documents are due in the mail by January 31st. If you’re like me, you work best under a deadline. So those PSMailers should be humming along as we speak. Remember to select the right fold design for your machine and do a test run before you process a complete batch. (See last month’s blog for more tips and clever Beatles puns).

As you tackle this tax time task, you will find it reassuring to know that our Customer Service and Tech Team (the best in the business, by the way) is available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST to answer all of your questions and help you resolve any issues you might be experiencing.

ASAP for VIP’s

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Fri, Jun 27, 2014 @ 09:06 AM


Today’s society continues to want everything ASAP. Simple phrases we used to actually say to one another face to face have now been reduced to three or four letter acronyms and we say them by text message instead of a phone call or even email because it is faster and more efficient. For instance, IDK in a text message means “I Don’t Know” and IKR means “I Know, Right?!” Thankfully ASAP still means ASAP! However, using email is now “So Yesterday!” It’s all about speed and efficiency in communications, in business, in everything we do.

Customers demand immediate responses and actions and we, as thriving businesses, have to reply PDQ (that means pretty darn quick!) or we risk losing our VIP customers.

One way we can help you respond to your customers PDQ is to provide speedy processing equipment which delivers super important information to your VIP customers very quickly such as invoices, statements, refunds, direct mail, promotions and many other everyday business communications.

One of the fastest pieces of processing equipment available in today’s market to help your business communicate in a quick and efficient manner is the PSM7000, PSMailers medium volume master. The PSM7000 rolls out 7000 sheets per hour or nearly 125,000 per month. That speaks volumes about speed and efficiency! Talk about satisfying demand for fast, efficient, almost instantaneous responses, this is it.

The PSM7000 allows users to place 500 sheets in the hopper during processing and because the PSM7000 is a bottom feeding system you won't have to stop the machine to reload the documents. Sheets can be up to 8.5” x 14” and the PSM7000 offers five folding options: C, V, EZ, Z and EC using the manual fold plate. The PSM7000 counter operates both in manual or batch mode.  An 18” conveyor keeps all of the forms orderly and is a mere 70 lbs for being such an impressive processor. It’s perfect for medium volume companies and mid-sized businesses.

7 Easy Steps to Setup Pressure Seal Equipment

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Thu, May 24, 2012 @ 16:05 PM

Pressure seal equipment can help manage the labor costs spent on time-intensive tasks such as manually folding and sealing envelopes for bulky mailings. Setting up pressure seal equipment for use when purchased takes just seven easy steps... and seven may sound like a lot at first, but I'm including steps like Step One: be careful taking the machine out of the box because it's really heavy! Don't forget that with any of the more technical steps, we have trained (friendly!) support staff ready to guide you through the process.

Let's get started.

Step One: Unpacking your pressure seal equipment

The weight of your new pressure seal equipment and tool kit is at least fifty pounds, so when taking it out of the packaging it may be necessary to have an extra person or business employee on hand to help you lift it properly and avoid the chance of serious injury. 

Step Two:  Insert the paper guides and adjust to the proper width.

One thing that can slow down business productivity is when paper gets jammed in the equipment, preventing it from working properly. This problem can be avoided using the paper guides. Carefully insert the paper guides and adjust to the proper widths to ensure documents will load and print efficiently.

Step Three:  Position your Fold Plate Stops.

You need to verify that both Fold Plate Stops are set to the correct position to the form-style you will be using for your mailings – Z-fold, C-fold, EZ-fold, or V-fold. 

Step Four:  Install the Fold Plates

Both the upper and lower fold plates must be installed according to instructions to ensure your pressure seal equipment works effectively.

Step Five:  Follow procedures to plug-in the machine

Plugging in your pressure seal equipment is certainly simple enough, but to ensure that everything continues smoothly it helps to first plug the power cord into the machine before plugging it into the wall outlet.

Step Six:  Turning on the machine

Flip the lower power switch to the “On” position and give your machine a few minutes to warm up. Your pressure seal equipment is almost ready to use.

(Get excited, you're about to save time and money!)

Step Seven:  Running the Machine

To run the PSM1800 machine, you can push the Start/Stop Switch on the machine's Control Panel. The feed system is preset, but if adjustments need to be made, you can refer to your Operator’s Manual. Remember when loading the machine, the glue leading edge should be facing upward.

Now you're ready to start doing business more efficiently!

How do Pressure Seal Machines Save You Time and Money?

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Fri, Jul 22, 2011 @ 09:07 AM

envelope review

Two major factors to advancement in any business are productivity and capital.  Job efficiency can increase with reduction of menial tasks like individually stuffing envelopes for large mailings, which requires both time and money that could be put to a more productive use. Better efficiency can thus be achieved by the utilization of pressure seal machines.


How can PSMailers increase company efficiency?

PSMailers are pressure seal self mailers, one-piece sheets that are printed, folded, and sealed like envelopes before mailing.  PSMailers meets a business’s mailing needs in one single package, so those rushed trips to the office supply store and the time spent ordering and waiting for envelopes are no longer necessary.  Pressure seal documents, equipment, and software come together to provide a solution to your business needs where speed and efficiency are a profitable asset.

Pressure seal machines take the hassle out of issuing paychecks, statements, and invoices.  Customer letters, purchase orders, reports, newsletters, and promotions can all be done simply and efficiently, saving time and increasing productivity as well as adding to efficiency by decreasing the supply costs for bulky mailings.

timeDoes it really save time and money?money

A large company had multiple offices with each location having between 100 and 300 employees.  With so many employees needing to be paid, the company saw the need to streamline its complexPSM1800

payroll process.  The time and costs associated with its methods needed a cost effective pressure seal system, but most other systems were cost prohibitive.

The introduction of PSMailer's PSM1800 provided a viable solution and pulled the company out of its payroll blues.  Companies that process a minimum of 6500 documents yearly will find the cost of an PSM1800 pressure seal machine to be justifiable, increasing business efficiency and, in turn, company growth.

 What are other options for pressure seal machines?

From the PSM300C, which operates faster than the PSM1800, to the PSM10K, which is capable of processing 10,000 documents an hour, PSMailers has a variety of pressure seal machines to choose from with six different folding styles for companies to utilize for their mailing.
