What is an indicia?
An Indicia is one of the most popular ways to indicate, on the mailing panel side of a mail piece, that the postage has been paid. The other two methods include stamps or metering. Indicias are often used for first class, high volume mailings. An indicia is an imprinted designation on mail that denotes postage payment, permit number and mailing classification. It is printed directly on the mail piece.
