Endicia may be just the ticket for commercial applications, but the stamp feedstock is prohibitively expensive for most household mailing needs. It adds about $0.105 to the cost of postage, or, as little as 7 cents additional if you buy 2000 labels at once. If the USPS added 10 cents to the First Class rate, the public would have a collective conniption. Prospective buyers should also know that Endicia is the only supplier for the stamp feedstock for the LabelWriter Turbo label printers. This monopoly (synonym for price-gouging) is said to "protect" the user from illegally printing unauthorized stamps, but it is not clear just how such a risk could arise, or, who would be liable for such unauthorized postage. Add to this the fallibility of the LabelWriter printer (400 Turbo), which occasionally allows a jam-up with the sticky side of the label rolling around the platen, and you have mega-potential for additional expense. The software warns you that you have to have enough labels on the roll to complete a multiple-stamp printing, but it doesn't tell you what happens when the first (or subsequent) label in the queue jams the printer. Simply put, you lose (at least part of) the value of your print order. For example, if you wanted to print 100 First Class stamps and the first one jammed, Endicia charges you for the full 100, a loss of $44 at the current rate. This is truly unnecessary when modern print drivers can "know" the hardware status of the printer in real time and prevent excessive loss from inevitable hardware failures. The final straw on the dromedary's back is that the user cannot specify a particular postage value for an individual stamp but must choose from a very limited drop-down menu--UNLESS (you guessed it) you purchase an Endicia postal scale (a $106 value at this writing ;) that transmits the stamp value back to your computer so that you can be correct to the penny! There are workarounds, of course, such as printing one stamp at a time, or going to the Post Office. One final caution if you decide not to go back to the old-fashioned lick-em-'n-stick-em, save the last 2 or 3 passwords that you have used on your Endicia account so you can log in successfully even if their last system restoration has lost track of your most recent password.

When on an interview for a tech support position with them in Redwood City several years ago, I was left with the impression that they care little about great support and less about their employees.

This app is much more powerful, flexible, and fast than doing it online. If you only need to ship a couple packages infrequently, then using the USPS website is probably for you. But if you are sending dozens of packages per week, as I am, then a program like Endicia or Stamps.com is necessary for any level of efficiency.

v1.3 (free), which is compatible with Leopard, can be downloaded from: http://www.buyolympia.com/software/products/swordfishexpress/v1/. In fact, I just used it to print a Priority Mail label.

I'm sorry, $15.95/month plus the cost of postage does not fly with me, when I can use PayPal's multi-shipping feature or the USPS site for free, just pay the cost of shipping.

Awesome! I use this app all the time. If you ship things often, or even just occassionally, Swordfish Express is indespencible! Creates very Professional looking labels with the Delivery Confirmation barcode on the label. Best of all, you save at the post office since the e-delivery confirmation is free! Try this next time you are sending a package via Priority Mail.

Excellent utility! SwordfishExpress has made mailouts and tracking a lot easier. It creeps up the screen on each launch with multiple monitors, and the preview pane has a minor issue in Panther, but I look forward to the full version (someday?) which hopefully will be able to purchase USPS postage for printing like Endicia. It would also be nice if Swordfish could print a label even if it doesn't qualify for Delivery Confirmation, just to save time. But these are minor wishes. SwordfishExpress gets the job done.
