Document Finishing

You think you might be done when you produce the documents. But, you’re just getting warmed up! Your next step for that professional look is document finishing!
 
Document finishing services refer to what happens to the documents right after printing. A good finish is important and in fact, can mean the difference between mediocre work and a professional look. If you think about it, you can create the best content but if it is showcased poorly to the reader, it can easily lose all the impact you were hoping for.
 
Your Postal Connections expert can put those special finishing touches on the documents you’ve worked hard to design and produce content for. Here are some of the services you can request:

Postal Connections of America- Packing and International Shipping

Your Postal Connections of America, Lake Havasu store offers:

 

Packing Services
Ever try to figure how to pack that special item so it arrives at its destination in one piece? You need to find the right box size and pick the appropriate bubble-wrap, packing peanuts, tape, etc. It is time consuming, confusing, expensive and a major inconvenience with no guarantee that the item will even be packed right!
 
Proper packing is both a science and an art. The packing pros at PCA professionally pack and ship your fragile, special and valuable items. As certified retail packing specialists, we treat your items as if we were packing our own
 
We stock more than 100 box sizes and keep plenty of Styrofoam peanuts, bubble-wrap, tape, specialty boxes and other packing materials on hand. We will even custom-make a box for that moose head or special collectible.

 
International Shipping Services
Shipping a collectible to your aunt in Los Angeles is pretty easy. Sending a piece of jewelry to a friend in in France is a different story.
 
International shipping is much more complicated than shipping domestically because each country applies different laws and rules regarding commodities entering their country. Then there are the import taxes, international duties, brokerage fees and other additional costs that could be assessed on your shipment.
 
And if you forget to complete and include the specialized international document requirements, your shipment may never arrive.
 
No worries! The international shipping experts at PCA know precisely how to pack, document and ship your items to arrive safely and on time to just about anywhere in the world.
 
As International Shipping Professionals, we provide the following:

  • Shipping to more than 200 countries on seven continents

  • Multi-carrier shipping options
  • International documentation including commercial invoice, pro forma invoice, E. E. I. forms and automated airway bills

The Postal Connections of America Story

Postal Connections Franchise

Today, you know your Postal Connections of America (PCA) store as a one-stop shop for many useful items and services for businesses and consumers. The stores offer anywhere pack and ship, printing, copying, shredding, mailbox rentals, office supplies, computer rentals, notary services and much more. In addition, to maintain the local flavor of the stores and because so many are community driven, several stores offer other items. These have included stocking greeting cards, gifts, local craft merchandise and selling media like games and DVDs.

 

The History of Postal Connections of America

Postal Connections of America started in 1995, 21 years in business in 2016, an enduring accomplishment by any standards. The company originally built and furnished postal, packing and shipping stores for independent operators. The very next year, 1996, PCA started franchising by providing franchisees a support system for daily operations, marketing and preferred vendors.

 

In 2000, a holding company bought the franchisor as an adjunct to a collection of businesses, operating Postal Connections as a subsidiary. In 2002, the current owners, C. “Andy” Thompson and Fred Morache, joined Postal Connections as experienced managers to develop the franchise business.

 

New Franchisors

Andy and Fred ended up buying the franchise in 2007 and made it a privately held company dedicated to expanding franchise stores across the US. Their concept was to update the version of the original postal, shipping and business services concept they helped create at Mail Boxes Etc. which was based on providing community-oriented products and services, stellar customer service and competitive pricing.

 

Franchisees are encouraged to add new services and hard-to-find products unique to the community. The Postal Connections staff and area franchisees dedicate themselves to assisting and guiding franchisees to grow their shops.

 

We love this business!

Packing Experts Prevent Damaged Goods

packing_experts_lake_havasu

When you are shipping something, make sure you package it right. If you’re uncertain on how to do that, leave it to the professional packing experts at your Postal Connection Store in Lake Havasu.

 
You don’t want anything like this to happen to you:

  • A TV producer sent 200 DVDs to California but only six made the conference attendees that were waiting for all 200. The recipient said the first of the two packages with the DVDs arrived damaged. It appeared that along the way, it burst open. It ended up full of assorted junk (possibly from another package?) and got resealed with the six DVDs inside and a generic note from the postal service saying the package had been damaged!
  • A purchaser of more than 45 name-brand baby clothes from eBay found a large hole in one corner of the package and 41 pieces removed. In their place, sat an empty can of chewing tobacco.
  • An artist shipped a painting to New York for a show about pollinators where the artistry was limited to bees, birds and butterflies. No one bought the piece so it got shipped back to her. Disaster! The box was crushed and so was the artwork. The painting frame cracked and could not be repaired. The total loss was over $400.

If you purchase insurance on shipping you can recoup losses, but this is not the point, is it? In most cases, the purchaser is looking forward to receiving the item being shipped and the sender wants it to arrive intact, not be reimbursed because it didn’t.


A couple of things to know about the art of packaging is that scotch tape is inappropriate as a packaging tape and newspapers are not the best cushioning material. Also, make sure that the package contents are not too heavy for the box thickness.


Better yet, let Postal Connections Lake Havasu handle the packing and shipping!

Businesses Appreciate Good Service

counter1

Postal Connections of America stores are built on good service. A recent survey suggests that purchasers appreciate the value of strong service-oriented businesses. In fact, 60% of Americans would try a new product or service if they felt they would receive a good customer experience and 70% are willing to spend an average of 13% more with companies they feel deliver good customer service.

 

For the past three decades, America has been re-organizing how work is done resulting in a significant number of entrepreneurs and freelancers that offer products and services to the B2B or B2C markets. The unprecedented growth of web communications, home offices, portable work, service businesses, and world trade is driving American companies to look at work in a different way, driving workers from traditional employee status to become home-office representatives, contractors, vendors and consultants. There has been a significant growth of these kinds of small business people. They are always striving to be more productive by seeking the most convenient and reliable products / services.

 

The U.S. Census indicates that small office / home office businesses have been increasing at a 49% rate over the last decade. It is estimated small businesses now number over 50 million U.S. entities and they need administrative support to serve their customers /clients / employers. Efficiency is critical and they use Postal Connections for their back office support in lieu of purchasing printers, fax machines, copiers which are all office mainstays. We help them compete locally and worldwide by providing a basket of essential services like mailbox rentals, computer rentals, printing, copying, faxing, shipping, packing, office supplies and much more, serving as the office for many small businesses.
