Alphabet soup of folding styles... mmm mmm, confusing!

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Fri, Aug 7, 2015 @ 13:08 PM

Alphabet Soup

Apologies for planting the Campbell’s Soup earworm in your head. (At least I didn’t mention your favorite bologna…you know, the one with a first name and last name…or a certain cat food mix that will leave you mentally meowing in double time). But you see, I was reviewing the many fold styles available for use with PSMailers… C-fold, V-fold, ZX-fold… and I realized this alphabet soup of letters likely stirs up a hot cup of confusion for many users. I figured that PSMailers Guy fans (I know you’re out there) would appreciate having these spelled out clearly.


Below are the six available fold styles of PSMailers documents:

Z-Fold "Accordion style" Z-Fold This is the most common fold style. Creates the letter "Z" when folded; easy-open style good for forms, checks and other mailings. 8.5" x 11" 8.5" x 14"
C-Fold "Letter" or "Tri-Fold" Great for checks and forms. 8.5" x 11" 
 V-Fold "Half Fold" or "Single Fold" Forms the letter "V" when folded, provides generious space for information.   8.5" x 11" 
 EZ-Fold "Eccentric Z-Fold" Uneven Z-Fold, great for checks and forms that need a little more print real estate.   8.5" x 14"
 EC-Fold "Eccentric C-Fold" Legal size accommodates a fourth panel for return envelope.   8.5" x 14"
 ZX-Fold "Z-Fold with extra voucher" Legal size version of the Z-Fold with a fourth panel that creates a detachable voucher ideal for printing A/P checks.   8.5" x 14"

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!

Matchmakers, arranged marriages, online dating websites…since the beginning of civilization, humans have relied on man and machine to find that perfect match. Some result in the happily-ever-after, others never make it past a disastrous first date. While I’m no expert on love, I do know one matchmaking tool proven to succeed: the PSMailers Select Your Model online tool.

Within seconds, the tool calculates productivity and recommends the best model(s) to handle your needs.

I Feel the Need, the Need for Speed!

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Fri, Aug 8, 2014 @ 13:08 PM


Gosh, I love that movie! As quoted by the characters Maverick (Tom Cruise) and Goose (Anthony Edwards) in Top Gun, “I feel the need, the need for speed!” I will never tire of watching that movie. The Need for Speed is synonymous with the PSM10K. Seriously. How can you beat 10,000 documents per hour? With the PSM10K, you can add up to 500 sheets while the equipment is processing thanks to bottom feed technology. Due to its extra-long conveyor at 36”, the PSM10K easily accommodates the high output. As crazy as this might sound, just think of it as a Hemi engine. It’s powerful and muscular. Not bulky. It’s a fine looking piece of equipment that quietly sits on a desktop and churns out the mailers.

With the power of the PSM10K, you’ll be surprised to know it only weighs 75 pounds. It processes sheets up to 8.5” x 14” and can produce five different folds: C, V, EZ, Z and EC. It has a manual fold plate, a digital counter and is a bottom-feeding system. A variable speed dial allows you to control the speed if it needs to be slowed temporarily....but don’t even think of it. Why harness the power and output?!

Just think of every business communication that can be produced and mailed in such a quick amount of time. To the tune of 200,000 mailers per month. That’s volume and speed. That’s the PSM10K. The PSM10K integrated folder/sealer can process checks, direct mail communications, invoices or statements and so much more. “It’s designed for high-volume businesses!”

Are you Sticking to your Pressure Seal New Year's Resolution?

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Thu, Feb 20, 2014 @ 15:02 PM

Let Pressure Seal provide an Efficient & Organized Office


Hey Folks! Just checking in to see how you’re doing on your 2014 New Year’s Resolution. It’s about that time when people either give up or they’re making great strides. Remember, it takes six weeks to make a new habit, according to all the New Year’s Resolution Gurus!

 I said it last month and I’ll say it again, “Organized, Efficient Offices are Key to High Productivity & Happiness! It’s so easy to say, over and over again, when it’s true.

Last month, we talked about the PSM1800, a space saving champ which churns out self- mailers lickety-split to the tune of 1,800/hour or 10,000/month. Not bad, I say! However, if your office needs a little more churning power, PS Mailers has another solution to consider, the PSM3000 pressure seal model.   

The PSM3000 is a mighty folding/sealing machine with nearly double the output capacity as the PSM1800. So, if you have higher volume mailings every month, this may be the one for you.

The PSM3000 is small enough to fit in tiny spaces or directly on your desk. It doesn’t take up much space, but boy, can it churn out the self-mailers! Up to 3,000/hour or up to 25,000/month. Now THAT’S productivity, efficiency and organization all rolled into one great pressure seal machine! 

It offers five folding options which include Z, C, V, EZ and EC folds and can process thousands of documents including checks, direct deposit statements, direct mail promotions and so many other communications important to your customers and your business.

Keeping the PSM3000 churning out mailers is a cinch. To add more forms during processing, simply load additional pressure seal self-mailers in the feed tray.  Yes, it’s really that easy!

I’ve attached the PSM3000 video so you can watch it in action. You’ll see exactly how simple, yet highly productive it is and hopefully, this will motivate you to be true to yourself and your New Year’s Resolution! 

Click here to watch it now.

The Pros and Profits of a Pressure Seal Self Mailer

Posted by PSMailers Guy on Fri, Aug 5, 2011 @ 16:08 PM


Pressure seal self mailers simplify the process of mail preparation.

Old process...

letter   and thenenvelope stuffingand then   stamp   and then address envelope  and then slow mail process

PSMailers process...

pressure seal letter   and then PSMailers machine  and then   folded pressure seal forms

Pressure seal self mailer systems enable far easier mail preparation for business. They relieve the demand of having to fold, stuff, seal and post each document individually, which can be a very time-consuming process demanding a lot of your company’s resources that could be used elsewhere. A pressure seal self mailer system relieves the workload by taking away all the menial tasks for you, allowing for effective time management and saved capital.

Pressure seal self mailers decrease buying, storing, and custom printing costs.

A pressure seal self mailer system will greatly decrease the costs involved in buying and storing supplies (not to mention the storage space for those supplies), plus the costs of custom printing envelopes and stationary, thus saving your company’s resources through responsible financial management. Whether the document is 11” or 14” in length with V-folds, C-folds, or Z-folds, pressure seal self mailer forms serve as their own envelopes, eliminating the need to shop for costly stationary.

A pressure seal self mailer system offers the convenience of faster mail processing.

Handling the documents to prepare them for mailing is no longer necessary, saving your company both time and money. The process of printing documents, folding documents, and stuffing envelopes has been cut in half thanks to pressure seal self mailers. After they are printed, the documents are sent directly to the pressure seal machine, which prepares them directly for mailing.

With pressure seal self mailers, postal processing is quick and easy.PSM5000 M

Pressure seal self mailer technology allows you to print addresses directly onto the form. In addition, intelligent barcodes can be included, saving your company from many postal processing hassles.

Security and confidentiality will give you peace of mind.

A pressure seal self mailer system provides a more effective seal than a regular envelope, and it can eliminate the chance of errors, as when two confidential documents are accidentally inserted into the same envelope or a document gets mismatched and inserted into the wrong envelope.
