Did you know Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away? I am very bad at sending cards to my family. I usually intend to do so, I purchase the cards, address the envelops, and then they sit there! Why, because I forget either to get stamps, or umm I do not have the money to get all the stamps to mail the cards out!
A few days ago, I was let in on a little secret. Okay so maybe it isn’t a secret, but it was news to me! Hallmark has partnered with the U.S Postal Service. This is going to make getting those cards, and mailing them out so much easier. With this partnership brings a line of cards that will already include postage. Mmmhmm now you can buy your card, and postage is already included on the envelop, so no more excuses.
Hallmark currently has more than 90 Mother’s Day Postage-Paid greeting cards to choose from. These cards include cards for mom, grandma, sisters, and for those other important women in your life, that you look up to.
Postage-Paid greeting cards can be purchased at stores such as Hallmark, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, CVS, and most other stores that sell Hallmark greeting cards. These cards range from $2.69 – $3.99 and did I mention they come with PAID postage… Want to stock up on cards with paid postage, but worried with the postage always changing. Don’t worry the postage on these envelops, are treated like the forever stamp, so they will NOT expire on you.
Hallmark is not just doing the Postage paid on Mother’s Day cards, they also have over 200 every day, and other seasonal cards with the postage paid as well. Now you really have no excuse.
I was sent a sample pack of these cards, and I have to say Hallmark has not disappointed me. I have always loved Hallmark greeting cards, and now thanks to them, I will be able to send my family cards and ON TIME! Yup, on time, and it is all included in the price I pay at the store. All I have to do is sign, seal, and place in the mailbox.
As you can see, the cards are individually sealed, this is a plus, because now it prevents those not so honest, people from taking the paid postage envelop. I use to be a merchandiser for Hallmark, and that always bugged me, when stocking the cards and you end up with some envelops short, because someone decided they didn’t want the yellow envelop that came with the card they were getting. They wanted the pretty blue one instead! I am also a fan to the fact they are reasonably priced.
