Endicia Announces PictureItPostage™

Featuring Larger Image Size & More Personalization

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 6, 2005 -- Endicia™ today announced the availability of PictureItPostage™, a customized postage solution that gives customers 46% more space for their images and more personalization options. Customers can turn their letters and packages into spectacular personalized works of art with PictureItPostage. Whether it's a color photograph of the happy couple for the wedding invitation, or a snap-shot of the family for the Christmas card, PictureItPostage lets customers decide what goes on their stamps. Customers can upload their images and order their stamps immediately at www.PictureItPostage.com.

"Individuality is prized in our culture, and personalization is the ultimate expression of that value," said Dr. Harry Whitehouse, CEO of Endicia. "The combination of our customers' endless imagination and our extensive experience in postage printing and regulations, is bound to create some of the most beautiful expressions in the mail."

Creating stamps with PictureItPostage is simple. The customer uploads an image to the website and uses a simple interface to select the orientation of the image, choose the denomination of postage, crop the image, and pick the stamp colors. The new stamps, printed 20 to sheet, are shipped to the customer within 10 business days. Unlike competing services, PictureItPostage allows the customer to choose between portrait and landscape orientations for their stamps, and provides 46% more area for the customer's image. Featuring an elegant serration design on all four sides of the stamp, and allowing customers to pick any color from their image as the background color, PictureItPostage stamps are the ultimate in personalization.
