What is a postal scale used for?
When you have access to a postage scale, you can skip the post office and mail items right from your home or business.
Types of Postal Scales
Digital postal scales from brands like DYMO by Pelouze feature LCD screens for a clear display. They can hold up to 10 pounds depending on the model and have a hold button that can allow you to pause the stated weight to conveniently record the amount. There are also USB digital shipping scales with a capacity of up to 400 pounds and an optional wall mount display.
Bench scales are compact in design, yet can easily hold and measure the postage for parcels up to 400 pounds. These devices are not only great for adjusting shipping costs, but can also be used to weigh items in non-shipping capacities. Sam's Club features models from Salter Brecknell that displays measurements in grams and pounds or pounds and ounces.

How do I weigh a package for mailing?
