If you have a postage misprint where you print on the back of your NetStamps label sheet, or you print incorrectly on the front, you will need to mail-in a postage refund request to Stamps.com.  Watch this video to see how easy the mail-in refund process is.

The U.S. Postal Service manages all refunds for postage misprints, and they require physical proof of the misprint for the following items:

  • Misprints on the FRONT of any NetStamps label sheet
  • Misprints on the BACK of any NetStamps label sheet
  • Misprints on any mailing label
  • Misprints on any envelope with postage printed directly on the envelope

Shipping labels that have been misprinted that include a USPS Tracking barcode are eligible for Electronic Refunds.  The entire postage refund process can be handled inside the Stamps.com software or web site.

If you are a small business who sends out a lot of checks or invoices, then window envelopes are a great option for you to save time.  By allowing the check or invoice address to show through the window, you eliminate the need to print the address on the outside of the envelope.

Stamps.com offers a great way to use these time-savers by offering a heat resistant window envelope that won’t melt in a laser or inkjet printer.  This special envelope, which comes in single window or double window options, allows you to print postage directly onto the window envelope.

Special features of Stamps.com window envelopes include:
• Special heat-resistant window does not melt when printing postage using a laser printer
• The tinted pattern inside discourages reading sensitive information through the envelope
• Laser and inkjet printer compatible

How to Print Postage on Window Envelopes:
To print postage directly onto your envelope select the “Envelope – #10” option when using the “Envelopes” interface in the Stamps.com software. This option will be available in the “Printing On” drop-down menu when the mailpiece is set to letters.

Before you print, make sure you uncheck the boxes next to the “Return” and “Delivery Address” fields. so that those fields do not print. For single window envelopes, uncheck the “Delivery Address” box. For double window envelopes, uncheck the “Delivery Address” and “Return Address” boxes.
