Great story Frank...and it's a book "Mailing May" by Michael O'Tunnell. And you are spot on with the issue of mail delivery for the smaller printers.

 

By David Young on Jul 28, 2011

Right on, Frank. I took our last job into the BMU to drop off a first class mailing and it took an HOUR to get checked through - and there were NO other "customers". (I use the term customers tongue in cheek because I hardly feel like a customer when I'm there.)

And earlier this week, while I'm standing in a ridiculously long line waiting to buy a roll of stamps, I had to stare at two walls of greeting cards, notecards and other printed paraphernalia wondering why my government is trying to be in competition with me.
