Dear Margaux,

What a pleasant surprise when I opened my mailbox last week and found that the U.S. Postal Service had delivered this notecard from you!

Girl Scout Margaux letter without last name

I am so glad you enjoyed my presentation “One Day in the Life of a Writer.” I was happy to learn that I am not the only one who wakes up in the middle of the night wanting to jump out of bed to write down ideas. It makes me feel better that you said the same thing happens to you. 

GS scribe badge I was not aware that my visit helped your troop earn your Scribe badges until I read the Girl Scout blog.

Tomorrow I am attending the  Girl Scout Fundraiser for adults at the Catamount Ranch and Club.  I am excited! I have my ticket! What a cool fundraising idea to have some of the best chefs around creating savory appetizers from sweet Girl Scout Cookies.  It will be interesting to see what the chefs will be serving up. I’d better take my camera! If your mom is coming, tell her I have saved a book for her and will bring it along incase she hasn’t yet ordered a copy.

Enjoy your outings, meetings and the friendships you have made through the Girl Scouts. I think I mentioned to your troop that I made life-long friends through scouting.

Keep on Writing! And remember the good news we shared about life “There are always flowers for those who want to see them!”

Today’s blog is simply to inform all of our clients of the January 4, 2010 United States Postal Service increases. We are providing this information to our client’s, so that these increases can be taken into consideration when you establish your customer’s 2010 shipping and handling fees.

The overall increase in postal fees is 3.3%, however, there is good news!  There has been a decrease in the frequently used priority flat rate envelope from $4.95 to $4.90. Parcels sent via Priority Small Flat Box rate will not see an increase this year, and the USPS has promised no increases in the first class postage stamp of 44 cents.

Keeping current with changes in postal and delivery service rates and fees is a never ending job. As an order fulfillment company, we must be guardians for our clients to make sure they retain the highest profit margin on their sale. We strive to stay “in the know.” Constantly researching the quickest, most reliable and most economical methods of shipping is all part of getting the job done!
