Holiday Mailing Schedule 2019

It is that time of year again and if you want to send mail for the holidays Canada Post has deadlines.  We’ve reproduced their dates below.

Note that Canada Post isn’t guaranteeing their normal service turnaround due to heavy volumes at this time of year so the sooner you ship the more likely your letter/card/package will arrive on time.

“The on-time service performance guarantee for Priority, Xpresspost and Expedited Parcel items shipped from November 11, 2019 through to January 12, 2020 inclusive, is being modified.  Claims will only be considered for payment if the item is delivered two or more days after the published delivery standards”

It Was The Summer of ’89

(Apologies to Bryan Adams)

As we turn to fall I realized I hadn’t marked the business milestone of 30 years. In the summer of ’89 I started presenting businesses with a sophisticated marketing pitch:

“Do you send anything out in the mail?”

There were enough answers in the affirmative that we are still here 30 years later.

Our success is due to our current staff: Jean, Jamie, Gerry, and Cameron – and all those who have gone before them.

Here’s to many more years!
