WASHINGTON — Celebrate one-stop shopping and gift-giving solutions delivered by the U.S. Postal Service. It’s that time of year again when dads and grads are to be celebrated. This year why not really enjoy the party — give yourself the gift of convenience by visiting your local Post Office.
When you think dad or grad, you think greeting cards. Now, think the Post Office. Choose from 16 different Father’s Day cards and 12 different graduation cards. Reasonably priced from $2.50 to $3.75, they are easy to select, stamp and send all at one time and place.
If you’re thinking of including something besides your signature, why not add an American Express Gift Card? They’re available at select Post Offices nationwide in denominations of $25 or $50 dollars—or any dollar amount from $25 up to $100. Makes the perfect gift for any occasion: Father’s Day, graduation—even showers and weddings. Best of all, giving an American Express Gift Card takes all the guesswork out of gift giving, making it a gift for you too.
“What dad or grad wouldn’t love to find a gift card nestled inside a greeting card,” said Kelly Sigmon, vice president, Channel Access for the U.S. Postal Service. “When it’s delivered in a Priority Mail Flat Rate Gift Card Mailer — well, it tells the dad or grad in your life that they are your top priority.”
Sending beautifully wrapped gifts is simple too, when you send them the ReadyPost way. ReadyPost, the U.S. Postal Service’s exclusive line of shipping and mailing products, offers a variety of unique, colorful box and bubble wrap designs, ideal for sending any gift and great to use as gift wrap, even if you’re not mailing.
