A customer called yesterday. They had to mail 100,000 letters in two days, by law. The mailing house could get the letters printed (personalized) and stuffed in time but the envelopes they had in stock had my customers first class mail permit. Since these could mail with a presort standard permit, the postage savings would be huge. They asked if we could somehow produce 100,000 envelopes with their presort standard permit so their mailing facility could get the letters out in time.
It’s pretty darn hard to produce 100,000 envelopes in two days, especially when your production schedule is full.
After a few phone calls, we performed our first miracle of the year for this customer and will have the 100,000 envelopes produced and delivered on time, saving them over $10,000 in postage.
That’s what we do.
