Best Answer

Stamped mail is great when you have single items, metered mail is better when you have large mailings. With stamped mail you place a physical stamp in your item, with meter mail or pre-canceled stamp permit, the item to be mail has a postage printed from a licensed machine from the post office.

Metered mail has postage printed directly onto the mail piece by a postage meter, while stamped mail has pre-printed postage stamps affixed to the mail. Metered mail is often used by businesses for bulk mailing, as postage rates can be updated electronically. Stamped mail is more commonly used for personal or individual mailings.
