On April 4, 2012, SendOutCards was awarded the Mail Innovation Award by the United States Postal Service at the National Postal Forum in Orlando, Florida.
According to the United States Postal Service, this award is given to postal customers who have demonstrated creativity in the use of the mail to drive significant business results and mail growth.
This award comes after SendOutCards spent over four years working with its customer base, its distributor base and the United States Postal Service to create a new first-class postage piece called picture postage. As the largest consumer of first-class postage in the United States, SendOutCards was chosen by the postal service as the first to ever use this innovative postage.
“SendOutCards is proud to have received this award,” said SendOutCards Chief Operating Officer Sam Robinson. “We’ve invested years of meticulous time and energy to find ways to further help our customers and distributors touch the lives of millions more people. It’s a great feeling to have accomplished that and to be recognized for it with this great award.”
SendOutCards successfully launched picture postage earlier this year, decreasing mail delivery times and opening the door to future tracking systems that will follow every card from the production line to the mail box.
“The Mail Innovation Award is another example of how we are focused on our mission to help millions of people act on their promptings and provide a vehicle for financial success,” said SendOutCards Founder and CEO Kody Bateman.
