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

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


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.

Take your payroll out of the time capsule

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Tue, May 2, 2017 @ 15:05 PM


As I was spring cleaning (aka finally taking down the outdoor Christmas lights), I ventured into the attic for the kind of hard core purging I have been avoiding for most of my adult life. I spent a few hours going through dusty, musty boxes, basking in the nostalgia of my beloved 8-track tape collection, cringe-worthy high school yearbooks, and my glorious beer can collection. Rummaging through a large box filled with “why was I keeping this??” keepsakes, I came upon pay stubs from my first job at a fast food chain which shall remain nameless. Clearing the cobwebs of my memory (and the pesky ones dangling over my head), I thought about how far we have come. My meager $3.15 hourly pay is laughable today. And just look at the pay stub. Yellowed, hand typed, carbon-copied.


It’s a far cry from the high-quality, automated self-seal documents PSMailers users have come to rely on today for security and efficiency in their payroll processing. Leaving nostalgia in the dust, PSMailers payroll documents are must-have modern tools available in six fold styles (C fold, Z fold, V fold, EZ fold, EC fold, ZX fold) in Stock, Standard or Standard Plus, which offers a choice of 20 ink colors.


Security is a top priority in payroll, and PSMailers include many built-in security features like chemical protection paper, fluorescent fibers, microprint, void pantograph to name just a few.


My attic adventures taught me an important lesson that day. It’s fun to dig into the time capsule, but the future will always be better and brighter (and there will never be another mullet or Neil Diamond 8-track tape in your future ever again.) You can take that to the bank (along with your PSMailers payroll documents).

P.S. If anyone out there is in the market for an incredibly amazing beer can collection, message me. Mrs. PSMailers Guy would be eternally grateful.

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

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



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, 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 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 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.)
