Maybe this is a stupid question, but how do people get the "Printable Postage" icon under their names?  I finally used the PBS postage for the first time today to see how it worked (which I'm glad I did because it's way simple!), but after I marked the books mailed, I figured the icon would show up under my name. However, nothing is there.

Am I missing something or do I have to wait until the books are marked received? Or do I have to send a certain number of books before it shows up?  Just wondering. It's not a biggie but I was just curious.

I got the printed postage icon and I only used it once, since you get one free DC with first class postage having a gold key membership.

It won't show up for just a single use, I don't know how many uses or how often you need to use it, but it symbolizes someone who uses it on a more regular basis.

I see the printed postage icon under your name.

It will show for a single use. I only use the printed postage icon-maybe once a month, sometimes not even that but I always seem to have the icon.  I use it maybe 6 times a year tops but it always seems to be there.

Yep, it's under your name now!

I've been using printable postage for awhile now, but the icon showed up after my first use.

I think with mine it took awhile (a day?) to show up, so maybe that's why you didn't see it right away.

I guess it took a day for it to show up.  I wasn't expecting it yet, haha.  I do find using the postage on here to be so much easier though than running to the post office all the time!

I use it all the time -- so much more convenient for me!  (I even use it for my non-PBS book mailings, utilizing it with the Mail A Book To A Friend feature.)
