How does one apply for a self-print prepayment impression?

On the condition that domestic letter-post items are all of the same category and there are over 100 pcs. per posting, the sender can complete an application form. After approval, prepayment impressions can be printed in advance on envelopes according to the format regulated by the post. The sender should reserve the amount to be posted within each month and settle the account within the first 10 days of the following month. However, for domestic speedpost and parcel account holders, or for senders paying the postage at the time of posting, there is no reserve required.

How does one send mail bearing self-print prepayment impressions?

The mail should be posted at post office counters. It will be treated as underpaid if inserted into postal boxes without the proper amount of attached postage stamps. For domestic letter-post items over 20 pcs. per posting within the same category and at the same postage rates, the sender need only remit the total postage. The post office will then stamp a "postage paid" impression on each piece. International ordinary letter-post items are treated in an identical manner.
