The USPS came rattling its tin cup throughout the Great Bailout months of 2009, however the feds had actually already handed over all their bailout funds to GM and AIG.

So the Post Office remains in trouble. How can you aid? Well, you could pay absolutely no interest to the biggest cost in doing a postcard printing/post workplace mailing task: the postage.

Well, alright after that. Allow's presume that you do desire the Post Office to recoup, but you don't intend to finance the whole healing on your own. Let's presume you intend to conserve cash on your mailing rather.

Exactly how? Creating a postcard with mailing costs in mind.
