    So printed stamps are more expensive than just buying stamps from the Post Office, or am I missing something?  8 sheets of 24 stamps from Endicia - $14.95 ($0.078 per stamp), but there's only a $0.03 per stamp discount, so I'm paying almost 5 cents more per stamp?

    Hi Derek,

    Thank you for your message.  I'd be glad to assist you today.

    Using Dymo Printable Stamps, what are you selecting for type of mail piece and also postage value?

    We typically see the discount of 3 cents per stamp for Letter Envelope/First Class as the price there is $0.46 and the retail price is $0.49.

    Once I have further information about your selections, I can advise further.

    Thanks!

    Hi Melody,

    Yes, I'm just asking about standard 1st class letter stamps--$0.46 from Endicia vs. $0.49 at the post office, but with Endicia I'm spending another $.08 per stamp on materials?

    Hi Derek,

    Thanks for the clarification!

    You are correct that postage stamp sheet printing requires USPS-approved DYMO Printable Postage Stamp Sheets.  It's possible you might find compatible labels to use with the Dymo software on other sites.  I recommend doing an Internet search in order to shop around.

    Some business owners may find the convenience of printing in their home office offsets the costs of the materials such as the stamp sheets and ink and others may not.  That's a call you will have to make for your business.

    If you have any other questions arise, please feel free to post in our Community Forums.  More about doing that can be found here:  How can I post to the forum?

    Happy Shipping!
