Creating and using a custom preset on the DM100i-DM225

A preset is a saved set of pre-defined meter settings, such as class, destination, weight, envelope ad, and inscription. Custom presets allow you to save frequently used classes and options, so that you don't have to manually select them each time.

The video example shows you how to create a preset for an International First Class Letter, but you can create a custom preset using any settings you wish.

Create a custom preset

To create a custom preset, first select all of the options you wish to save as part of the preset, then save it.
  1. Press the button for Class.
  2. Select the class, then select all of the other settings that you wish to save as part of the preset (destination, envelope ad, inscription, etc.), as though you were going to print an envelope with those settings.
  3. Select Custom Presets > Define New Preset once you select all of your desired settings.
  4. Press Yes/Enter when prompted to confirm all values.
  5. Enter a name and select OK when the system prompts for a preset name.
    • The name may contain up to 12 alpha-numeric characters (letters and numbers).
    • To use letters, repeatedly press the appropriate number key until the desired letter displays.
  6. Select Continue.
  7. Press Home to return Home screen.

  • You cannot edit a custom preset. To change a custom preset, you must create a new custom preset with the same name, which replaces the previous custom preset.
  • To ensure that your presets are automatically updated whenever postal rates change, define presets using a class instead of a fixed postage amount.
  • You can create multiple custom presets.
  •  Preset postage values are subject to the high value warning feature. This feature warns you when you manually key in a postage value that is higher than your typical value.
