• The instructions below outline the steps that you need to complete to set up your system to print a Meter Impression.

    • As mail requirements differ from day to day, some of the Impression Options may not be necessary, or their order may vary.
    • Begin by selecting a Meter Impression to gain access to the Impression Options that you may need to process your mail.
    Make sure you have already completed the preparation steps mentioned in Preparing and Starting your Job Run.
    1. Required settings:

      1. Make sure you are on the home screen of the [Standard] Meter Impression as illustrated below.

      2. Check or change the Meter Impression Type, if you are not in [Standard] mode.

        1. Change Imprint left or right:

          The system supports Imprint left and Imprint right. These flexible areas allow you to select two Slogans. Therefore you can print a Meter Impression with two slogans.

        1. Depending on the quantity and type of mail you have to process, you can choose an efficient weighing method that uses a weighing platform or the dynamic scale (if installed) to save time: see Choosing a Weighing Mode.

          To change the current weighing mode, press  and select a weighing mode in the Weighing mode screen.


          For more details, see How to Change the Weighing Mode.
