Electric Letter Openers – Best Features To Look For

Electric letter openers are a critical and essential part to any mailroom. They can be a lifesaver or a nightmare, depending on the quality and reliability of the model being used. They key word there is “model being used.” Are you using the right model?

One of the biggest customer service issues I see, regarding letter openers, is customers using an electric letter opener for a job that is much bigger than the letter opener was designed to handle. It isn’t that the poor letter opener is malfunctioning, but rather it is being misused.

You won’t see a bicycle being used in NASCAR. Although a bike gets you from point A to point B, it won’t win any races. OK. Bad analogy on my part, but hopefully you get the point. Here are a few things to look for in an electric letter opener prior to making a purchase:

Mess – Many letter openers are now available in a chadless format. This means there isn’t any messy clippings laying around after a job.

Speed – Check out the letter openers speed. Make sure it will handle what you need to open now and in the future.

Thickness – Make sure your letter opener can handle your thickest letter. You don’t want any jams!

Tray – Do you need an exit tray? Some letter openers come with an exit tray for the opened mail.
