Best Shipping Service (USPS, UPS, Etc?)

Looking for a recommendation on shipping service for my nascent e-commerce business.
I'm planning on offering free shipping, and in general my products are large but not heavy. (acoustic foam panels). I want to minimize cost, speed is not as important, since, well, it's free shipping.
Overall USPS Parcel Post tends to be the price leader. However, I have a few 'Must Haves' since I have no vehicle:
-Must pick up at business address
-Must be willing to retain and use key to open door at business address
-Must have online purchase for postage
-Must have self-printable labels
So, I have seen services like Smartpost and Stamps.com, I have no way of knowing whether they will meet my needs. It is further complicated by the fact that USPS doesn't offer self/online printing of postage for Parcel Post.
All thoughts are welcome!
