When it comes to franking, the best solution is the optimail 30. This franking machine fits perfectly for small to medium mail volumes, for instance in an architect’s office. Using the optimail 30 is child’s play due to its ample backlit display and self-explanatory user interface. A regular letter is turned into a medium for advertising by the inclusion of a company logo or an individual text message. The design supports:
• Compact, space-saving appearance.
• The functional elements are arranged in a sensible way by using form and colour. The excellent ergonomic operating sequence is supported through material, lettering and colour.
• Optional components (e.g. scale) fit seamlessly into the design.
• Functional design which appeals to the senses: colour and form create a friendly and approachable impression.
