Mailroom Monday: January 18 2009

9,784 cards were mailed this week...10 were the first going out of North Carolina! (Go Dixie go!) These boxes included the last of all the Valentines that arrived on time. We have a few hundred Valentines that came in very late (mailed past the deadline), as well as some that "hid" from us....our shippers were pulling out any Valentines from boxes they didn't have time to complete sorting, and found some love cards with "Happy Valentines Day" stamped inside. So those will all wait for Valentine's Day 2011!


You might consider finding a way to call out your holiday-specific cards when you mail them, just to be sure they don't also end up as stragglers that have to wait a  year!
