I just received this video from our friends at ProCopy Office Solutions. It shows a copier that they dropped from a 75 foot high crane in 2011. Pretty awesome!
This year, they are doing it again, and are having a contest for a free copier and a trip to the Bahamas if you can tell them why you have THE worst copier. You can see the details at http://www.procopyoffice.com/.
They are also allowing local businesses to drop their worst copiers for a $25 donation to the local Big Brother Big Sister organization.
Did LetterStream want to drop a copier? Absolutely! But not because we have any bad ones… all of ours make excellent copies and we don’t want to lose any of them. So instead we made a donation as though we were dropping our 8 biggest and best copiers… we can’t wait to see the ProCopy video for this year!

Don’t you hate it when gyms like Planet Fitness, Gold’s Gym, or 24 Hour Fitness keep charging your credit card even after you cancel your membership?
One good way to get the charges to stop is to send a cancellation letter via USPS Certified Mail.
Google “gym cancelation letters” and you’ll find numerous articles relating to how to stop gyms from charging your credit card on a monthly basis, and they almost all have one thing in common… they state that your letter should be sent via Certifed Mail.
We’ve mailed scores of cancellation letters via LetterStream.com, as well as our partner site, OnlineCertifiedMail.com. Once you create your letter, send it Certified Mail online without a costly trip to the post office.
I was walking through our facility and saw this postcard in our production department. I’m always fascinated by the creativity of our customers and enjoy seeing unique ways to communicate information.
This particular postcard jumped out at me as it had our company name on it. Who’d be sending a postcard with LetterStream printed on the front… other than a LetterStream employee?
Turns out one of our vendors bought us lunch (which was greatly appreciated) the same day that our new tech services manager started. Our new manager learned how easy it is to make postcards as well as created a fun and creative way to say “Thank You” at the same time!
Generally it is best to share, but by sharing your LetterStream login (email) with someone else you are limiting the communication we can have with that person.
We send emails to communicate the status of a job through our production process and if we have questions or quality concerns we may need to send an email to the owner of the account. If you share your login, we may not be able to communicate critical information, possibly leaving the job creator in the dark.
It is easy to set up new accounts and to add new users to a corporate account. So feel free to share this information with others in your company, but please don’t share your login information!
Sometimes we hear concern from mailing prospects on the east coast. Their concern is that it will take too long for mail created here in Scottsdale (Phoenix area), Arizona to make it back to the east coast.
This is a reasonable and logical concern, but we are pretty certain that our west coast mail can consistently make it back to the east coast and be delivered faster than east coast mail can.
Doesn’t make sense? Well, consider these points… When the post office is closed on the east coast, we generally have 2-3 extra hours, given the difference in time zones. We have tremendous print and mail capabilities, which means we can probably get the mail printed and inserted far faster than an in-house solution, improving our chances of getting the mail finished first.
Your jobs are not filler work for us, so we won’t put the job off to work on other projects (which we hear happens in some companies where printing and mailing isn’t their bread and butter), further improving our chances of getting the mail out at least one day faster than other companies.
And finally, the best part… our mail departs our facility after the local post office is closed, travels to a USPS acceptance facility, gets sorted to commercial airlines headed for the east coast and typically hits major east coast cities before the sun even comes up. So, when someone is concerned about the speed of mail across the country, we simply say “West is Best!”.
