Rapid Solutions Group to print 500,000 postcards for Xerox's Let's Say Thanks program
Press release from the issuing company
MELVILLE, N.Y. and ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 14, 2007 – Leveraging its expertise in personalized communication, Rapid Solutions Group will print a half million postcards of support for U.S. troops. The business communication solution provider is producing postcards from Xerox Corporation’s Let’s Say Thanks program, a free and easy way for the public to send messages to U.S. servicemen and women stationed overseas.
The postcards are designed by children ages 6-14 from across the country, and filled with messages from the public submitted through www.LetsSayThanks.com. Each of these personalized postcards sends a unique message of support for the deployed servicemen and women. To date, more than 10.5 million people have sent well-wishes to troops around the globe through the Web site and at local card drives across the country.
“America’s well wishes combined with the children’s artwork coming off the production press is uplifting and are sure to inspire the troops,” said Bob Robichaud, president and CEO, Rapid Solutions Group. “We are proud to do our part to support the men and women of the armed services.”
Rapid Solutions Group will print 500,000 of the postcards on Xerox iGen3® Digital Production Presses at the company’s Melville, N.Y. and Mt. Prospect, Ill. locations. Then the military support organization Give2TheTroops® will include the postcards in care packages sent to deployed U.S. forces in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere around the world.
“The response from the public has been amazing and we commend Rapid Solutions Group for helping to continue the troop appreciation,” said Mike Brannigan, president of Xerox’s United States Solutions Group. “As a Xerox Premier Partner, Rapid Solution Group’s effort goes a long way toward demonstrating that there is more to our partnership than doing business together—there’s support for our communities as well.”
