Mailroom Monday: August 16, 2010

This week 10,531 cards were mailed out - at a cost of $387.50!

The Half and Half Challenge has been a wonderful success this summer, getting us ready for the holiday shipping....Ciara's here posing with Sandy's boxes that are ready to go! On the far right, the really tall stack, is Halloween boxes, all with the appropriate mix of holiday with birthday, love, thankyou, and thinking of you. Many many thanks to all who keep us well-stocked with other-than holiday cards! The first of the Halloween boxes will start going out this week.

The small stack, just two boxes, is Thanksgiving - both are mixed boxes. The next stack to the left is Christmas...these are alllll Christmas, so some wintry birthday, love, thinking of you, etc are needed to split these into two boxes. And the far left stack? Mixed Christmas with other themes, ready to go!

Our other shippers have different proportions of each holiday type; check the Biggest Needs post which we've just updated. (It's always linked at the bottom of  each Mailroom Monday report; we update it every month or so!)


Ciara's perspective! Whoa!
