If you've ever wondered how much the @USPS uses of your tax money to function, the answer is they don't! The official #USPS website (facts.usps.com/top-facts/) even states "The Postal Service receives NO tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations."

Establishing a #personal connection between your #brand and your next customer has become an essential part of the #buyersjourney. One of the easiest ways to cut through the noise of #digital is by sending physical mail that reinforces your existing lead-generating strategies. Although #email is very popular (and tempting), physical mail is still a more trustworthy way to generate and maintain meaningful relationships with your customers.

First week of 2018 in the books! As we get excited about where we're planning to go, we can't help but reminisce where we've come from & the people that have helped us along the way. For a #nostalgic #FlashbackFriday to the early '90s, this was the image of a typical #inbound mailroom of the time. These were the sortation stations for our friends @dukeuniversity mailroom/#dukemedicalcenter! The good folks at Duke were some of the first people to take a chance and partner with us, and we're eternally grateful for their calculated risk. It's incredibly humbling to think about where we both were at the time and how we've grown together over the years.

These were the sortation stations for our friends @dukeuniversity mailroom/#dukemedicalcenter ! The good folks at Duke were some of the first people to take a chance and partner with us, and we're eternally grateful for their calculated risk. It's incredibly humbling to think about where we both were at the time and how we've grown together over the years. . . . #alternativemailing  #flashback  #nostalgia  #instantfilm  #mail  #mailing  #mailroom  #sendmoremail  #snailmail  #snailmailrevival  #snailmailrevolution  #b2b  #duke  #durham  #raleigh  #nc  #thetriangle  #rtp  #localraleigh  #smallbusiness  #mailroomdesign  #officedesign  #humblebeginnings  #forthelonghaul  #grewuptogether

@ExitEvent socials are amazing! We went to our first one last week at the @cannonroomraleigh at Capital Club 16 in Raleigh, which was elegantly decorated for the #holidays. Not only was the space impressive, but so were the #local business and startup professionals we got to meet. Huge thanks to @wellsfargo, Wyrick Robbins, and Fahrenheit Group for sponsoring the event, Virginia & Co. and @trophytapandtable for catering, and our friend Jordan Bowman for telling us these events exist. We're looking forward to future collaborations with some of these fine people!
