Time to grow your business like spring chickens.

In the natural world, spring is synonymous with new life and growth. In the chaotic world known as my household, it meant adopting a baby chick last year. She’s so cute, they squealed. We’ll take care of her, they promised. Just this one time, pleaded Mrs. PSMailers Guy. What could go wrong, I wondered?


I’m no spring chicken, but I know that baby chicks don’t stay little for very long. Within a mere 4-6 months, those fluffy foul become full-grown, egg-laying chickens. A hen can lay more than 300 eggs per year. And if that isn’t enough to keep you up ‘til the rooster crows, the waste made by a chicken in its lifetime can make enough electricity to run a 100-watt bulb for five hours!


Now before you think I suffer from a severe case of Alektorophobia (fear of chickens), let me explain what this fine-feathered experience has to do with PSMailers. As the flora and fauna around us spring to life this season, it can inspire us to grow our business in new ways. PSMailers pressure seal mailers are a sure way to get direct mail out faster and more efficiently. Like chickens, every day is an opportunity to hatch a new market for PSMailers documents:

  • Accounts Payable Check Printing
  • Other Check Printing
  • Applications
  • Invoices
  • Statements
  • Delinquent Notices
  • Customer Letters
  • Notices Refunds or Rebates
  • Purchase Orders
  • Report Cards
  • Tax Forms
  • Reports/Newsletters
  • Dividend/Interest Notices
  • Promotions
  • Benefits Mailings
  • License Applications
  • Renewals
  • Subscriptions
  • Reservation Confirmations
  • Utility Bills
  • And more!

If you’re wondering what became of our baby chick....rather than enjoying a fresh egg every day, we now get a daily, crack of dawn reminder that she is a he.

Love ‘em like they’re Tom Brady

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Mon, Feb 11, 2019 @ 09:02 AM

W-BLOG-LOVE'EM-LIKEBRADY 

Every year, the passing of Super Bowl Sunday brings my attention to love. Primarily, how much Mrs. PSMailers Guy loves Tom Brady. But it also serves as a timely reminder of that looming holiday of love, Valentine’s Day. Like Brady’s sixth Super Bowl ring, many objects have served as a symbol of love throughout history and culture. For example:

• In addition to being considered good luck, a four-leaf clover is also part of a love ritual in some parts of Ireland. If a woman eats a four-leaf clover while thinking about a man, supposedly he will fall in love with her.

• The maple leaf is a symbol of love in China and Japan; and in North America, it was often engraved on beds of early settlers to promote peaceful sleep and pleasure.

• Historically, sweat has been an active ingredient in perfume and love potions.

 

That last example makes me break out into a sweat. But it brings me to the object of my desire: PSMailers.

 

What’s not to love? PSMailers pressure sealer systems are available in a wide range of sizes, capacities and capabilities to fit any size or type of business, including accounting and legal firms, healthcare facilities and more. They deliver a complete solution for saving time, money and resources. Check out the small, but mighty PSM1800, the affordable, productive PSM3000, the value-added PSM5000, and the high-volume PSM10K.

 

PSMailers self-mailer documents make my heart skip a beat, too. With nearly 50 document styles to choose from, letter- and legal-size PSMailers documents can help you do everything you need to do better and smarter – from payroll, and accounts payable to direct mail, report cards, and more. PSMailers documents are available in six fold styles to best fit any application–C fold, Z fold, V fold, EZ fold, EC fold, ZX fold. Plus they’re ready to ship from a facility near you, in-stock or custom imprinted to your needs.

 

Scientists have claimed that most people will fall in love approximately seven times before getting married. With all the PSMailers machine and documents options available today, one could fall in love enough times to astound even the most seasoned researcher.

Cheers to Love, PSMailers…and buckets of sweat!

An Overdue Lesson in the Value of Self-Mailers

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Thu, Sep 20, 2018 @ 14:09 PM

W-PSMBlog9.18

One warm, sunny day this summer (okay, who am I kidding? …it was miserably hot and sweaty), my mind and body lay adrift on a raft in the pool; my nearly finished overdue library book resting on a towel on a lounge chair near the edge of the pool. With the sudden gust of a summer breeze, this blissful tranquility was interrupted by a gentle kersplash. There, floating blissfully itself in the shallow end of the pool was my paperback novel, sent airborne by my windswept towel, drinking up enough chlorinated water to fill an inflatable baby pool. I dog-paddled from the deep end to its heroic rescue. But the damage was done.

 

As it turns out, formerly wet books – even those thoroughly dried with a hair dryer – are frowned upon when returned at the library. If only I had heeded that overdue notice I received just a few days prior. Instead of a 50-cent fine, I paid $27.99 for my overdue sins.

 

In a water-soaked way, my personal folly draws attention to the value of self-sealed reminders, notices and other business communication like those produced by PSMailers systems. Printing, folding, sealing and addressing communication all in one system is a true time and money saver for public institutions, schools, and businesses that operate on limited resources.

 

PSMailers systems are available in a wide range of sizes and capacities to fit the volume needs of any size operation. From overdue notices, grade reports and other confidential information to marketing promotions, PSMailers can handle anything that needs to be printed and mailed efficiently.

 

So, my friends, I implore you to learn from my mistakes. Always renew your library books on time… always keep them as far away from water as possible…and always remember the productivity, flexibility and efficiency of PSMailers!

 

Swimmingly yours,

PSMailers Guy

Feeling The Heat!

Feeling the heat? PSMailers to the rescue!

This summer has already been a scorcher for much of the country, with heat spells in the 90s-plus F°¬ blistering communities from the east coast to the southwest. How hot was it today? It was so hot that you could almost hear the king of late night comedy, Johnny Carson, riff on the heat.

During these hot, steamy days of summer, who needs to sweat the time-consuming, labor intensive task of folding and sealing documents with outdated equipment? Help businesses keep their cool with PSMailers Pressure Seal Systems that save time, labor and money on the entire pressure seal mailing process:

• PSMailers keeps it “chill” with a line of compact, Small Volume folder/sealers designed for businesses that need 1,800-3,000 sheets/hour capacity.

• Busy offices can find much relief with PSMailers Medium Volume systems equipped to handle a demanding load without demanding too much of an organization’s budget or space.

• When the work really heats up, PSMailers Large Volume and Specialty models make light work of heavy loads.

This is also the perfect opportunity to remind PSMailers customers to store PSMailers documents in a temperature-controlled environment to ensure they are always in perfect condition for printing, folding, sealing.

So before you start seeing chickens lay hard boiled eggs this summer, help turn sweat into “Sweet!!” with PSMailers to the rescue.

See you at the pool! Last one in is a rotten (hard-boiled) egg!

How Self-Sealed Documents Can Keep Kids Honest (Honestly!)

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Tue, Oct 17, 2017 @ 10:10 AM

W-Sept-Blog-PSM.png

Confession time.  As a young lad in high school, I was admittedly not a model student. There were too many other distractions to occupy my mind and my time. That caught up with me, of course, so when mid-term grades came out one year, I had to actually use my brain and think, fast.  While not studious, I was no dummy and intercepted the grade report in our mailbox before dear mom and dad came home. Carefully opening the envelope so that it could be resealed, I ever so skillfully changed a well-deserved “D” to a miraculous “B.”

Did I get away with it?  Unbelievably, I did. Looking back, it’s not the proudest moment of my youth. The real lesson to be learned here is the value of self-sealed documents, like those produced by PSMailers, that preserve and protect critical, often confidential, information from educational institutions.

Printing, folding, sealing and addressing communication all in one system is a real time and money saver for schools that operate on such limited resources today.  PSMailers self-sealed documents keep the line of communication with parents and families direct and free from any youthful indiscretions. 

Because PSMailer systems are available in a wide range of sizes and capacities, they can fit the volume needs of school sites and districts of any size. They can be used to send grade reports, athletic department information, fundraising announcements, payroll… anything that needs to be printed and mailed efficiently.

My confession today serves not only to clear my conscience, but also as a public service announcement to parents everywhere: if your child eagerly offers to get the mail for you every day around report card time, the jig is up!

Remorsefully yours,

PSMailers Guy

P.S. Mom and Dad, if you’re reading this…please forgive me! I promise never to do it again.

To bot or not to bot? Trends in Customer Service

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Wed, Mar 1, 2017 @ 15:03 PM

W-TOBOTORNOTR.png

When unlikely film stars R2D2 and C3PO hit the big screen in 1977, they not only laid the groundwork for sci-fi fan geekdom the likes of which the world hadn’t seen since The Beatles played Shea Stadium – but these futuristic Tin Men also introduced modern society to the concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Machines processing and providing information much like humans, only faster, smarter and, dare we say, with more personality and humor. Great technological and computing advancements have been made since we discovered AI in a galaxy far, far away; and these two steampunk prototypes have been replaced by female voice-enabled interfaces such as Siri and Alexa, now ever-present in smart phones and homes around the world.

As AI becomes integrated into nearly every facet of personal and business realms, Customer Service is no exception. AI can, and will in some businesses, eventually replace human CSRs. But for now, AI serves as an IA (Intelligent Assistant) to CSRs, helping to enhance the personal customer service experience.

Which brings us to PSMailers Customer Service. (“Finally, PSMailers Guy!” you must be thinking.) In keeping with the acronym theme of this blog, I would characterize our Customer Support representatives as PSMIA (PSMailers Intelligence Assistants). Highly trained experts on the entire PSMailers line, functions and features (and not one bit – or bot – artificial, I might add). When you call the dedicated toll-free line (800-464-5030), Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm EST, you will reach a living, breathing PSMailers customer service representative ready and able to provide personal assistance with installation, troubleshooting, and product information, and more.

 So whenever you feel the dark side of AI upon you, simply remember these (paraphrased) words of the wise and wonderful Yoda, “May the force of the PSMI be with you.”

The season for "boos!" and W-2s

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Wed, Oct 26, 2016 @ 15:10 PM

Boos!W2s2016.png

 

I have been told I have a face for blogging. But there are far more frightening things you could encounter in your lifetime. For example, I am reminded of something a wise person once said: “The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.”  But fear not, PSMailers Blog Guy fans (no applause, please) – I am most decidedly NOT from the government, but I AM here to help.

 

Since we’re on the subject of the government, I am compelled to share my knowledge and wisdom about a timely topic: the all-important W-2 tax form used by taxpayers to file federal and state tax returns each year.  According to turbotax.intuit.com, the IRS requires employers to report wage and salary information for employees on Form W-2.This form also reports the amount of federal, state and other taxes withheld from an employee’s paycheck. The IRS requires employers to send employees a W-2 no later than January 31 following the close of the tax year, which is usually December 31.

 

Although we’ve just entered the hallowed season, that deadline is eerily close. Regardless of the PSM model you operate, the number of forms you process, or the folding style you choose, PSMailers make a necessary job essentially easier. Printed, folded, sealed and mailed to employees in no time. Contact your sales rep at 800.464.5030 or http://www.psmailers.com/contact-us/sales-form/ to find the right machine to match your form and your needs.

 

A few things to remember as you prepare for the season, first understand your fold. Selecting a style and ordering early will ensure plenty of time to get set up right http://www.psmailers.com/documents/styles/ Next match the fold to the machine, all models are designed to run various standard fold forms although some folds may not be compatible with the PSM1800 or 6500. Last but not least is to test run. You never know if you might need to make adjustments.

 

That, my friends, leaves you nothing to fear but a band of sugar-crazed trick-or-treaters at your front door after you just handed out the last candy bar. (And if you see someone in a PSMailers Guy mask, run…it’s NOT me.)

Maintenance 101: Why your PSMailer should be at the top of your honey-do list

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Fri, Jun 17, 2016 @ 10:06 AM

W-Honey-Do-List.png

Wives create them with glee. Husbands dread them. I’m talking about the honey-do list (also known as an implement of torture in the eyes of man).  I will admit such a list typically contains important, often urgent, and usually annoying-but-small tasks that just need to get done. And I further admit that once I have tackled said tasks, I often wonder to myself “Hmmm… that was easy. Why didn’t I take care that a long time ago??” But please don’t tell my better half.

The wisdom and power of a honey-do list is not lost upon me in the PSMailers world. That is why I respectfully submit to you, PSMailers system user, a honey-do list so short it contains one simple, do-able item: Monthly maintenance of PSMailers system. Performing this task monthly or every 10,000 forms will ensure that your system continues to function properly for years to come. Well worth your time, I promise.

 Monthly maintenance can be accomplished in 11 easy steps:

  1. Disconnect the power cord from the machine.
  2. Remove both fold plates.
  3. Vacuum any paper dust or toner that has accumulated on the feed table and the rollers.

                **Make sure the power cord has been disconnected before continuing**

  1. Open the access panel in the side cover opposite the control panel.
  2. Insert the 7/16” socket at the end of the breaker bar (inside the tool bag) over the hex shaped end on the #3 roller. This bar can now be used to rotate the rollers.
  3. Clean the stainless steel rollers with a household cleaner to remove any accumulated toner. As you clean, use the breaker bar to rotate the rollers so that the entire roller surface is cleaned.
  4. Clean the rubber rollers and the feed belts using a rubber roll rejuvenator (available at your local office supply store). Use the breaker bar to rotate the rolls and feed belt as you clean so all the             rubber surfaces are cleaned.
  5. Return the breaker bar to the tool kit and replace the access panel.
  6. Replace the fold plates.
  7. Make sure that the power switch is in the OFF position.
  8. Connect the power cord to the machine.

 

Much in the same way that tending to a honey-do list can bring peace to your personal relationship, minding this quick and easy regular maintenance can bring you many blissful years of PSMailers performance.

Perfecting Perfection: What March Madness taught me about basketball and PSMailers

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Fri, Apr 8, 2016 @ 10:04 AM

PSM-APR2016-BLOG-1.jpg

As I was filling out my NCAA brackets what seems like ages ago, I thought to myself: I got this! But as the first and second rounds of this year’s tournament played out, I (and most avid college ball fans) was proven sorely wrong. How could I have improved upon my perfect predictions?? After taking a licking in my picks and my pride, I took a moment to reflect. As often happens, I turned to PSMailers for inspiration (no, really).

 

PSMailers are an excellent example of just when you think something can’t get any better, you’re proven otherwise. The newest PSMailers systems have recently been unveiled and I think you will be impressed by the enhancements. For example, the new feeding system makes it even easier for users to seal forms consistently and successfully, hassle-free. No time outs needed. The new sealing block allows for quick and easy maintenance, which keeps units up and running critical jobs at all times. Nothing but net, as they say. And with the capacity to fold and seal 1,800-10,000 forms per hour, PSMailers are the MVP of the industry.

 

While some might not consider this as edge-of-the-seat exciting as the last two minutes of this year’s final March Madness matchup, I promise you will become an even bigger PSMailers fan. Score three points for PSMailers perfection.

Toll-free and Trendy!

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Mon, Sep 14, 2015 @ 14:09 PM

Sept 2015 resized 600

Much like vinyl records, handlebar mustaches, and Pabst Blue Ribbon beer,* public payphones are having a bit of a comeback these days. What were once blue beacons of instant communication (long since collecting cobwebs and graffiti) are being turned into Wi-fi hot spots and information kiosks in New York City. The grand plan is to eventually convert 10,000 payphone relics throughout The Big Apple.


This story warms my heart because I am quite fond of communicating via what many consider an old fashioned means. After all, the phone is perhaps the least used feature of smart phones and many people I know have abandoned their landline home phone all together.

 

But when it comes to PSMailers, reaching the Support Center by our dedicated toll-free line (800-464-5030) is one of the best ways to get the information you need. PSMailers customer service representatives are available Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm EST, to provide personal assistance with installation, troubleshooting, and product information. There’s nothing more reassuring than talking to a real live person when you have technical questions. PSM representatives are friendly and informed…the best in the business, I always say.

 

And now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to spin some vinyl and twirl my mustache.

 

Yours in trends and pressure seal mailing,

*No joke. Search “How did Pabst Blue Ribbon become a hipster favorite?” if you weren’t aware of this retro resurgence.
