Save Money on mailing

Huge savings
…a quick example

The Choco-Matic Egg company wanted to send eggs in the mail, but with prices so high their dreams were going to fail. Just as all seemed like doom and gloom, a search for First Mailing showed plans to help their business boom.

First Mailing offer postal rates that are just great, expensive postage is something they hate. If you’ve got lots to send, including things that do not bend, then let First Mailing show you prices that will not offend.

Before long eggs were in the mail packaged and neat, “hang on” said Cuffbert “that egg’s going tweet tweet!”. “I think your mistaken that’s not tweet tweet” replied Gertrude; “it’s postage that’s cheap cheap”.
