Following the Postal Regulatory Commission's second rejection of proposed Standard Mail rate changes, the U.S. Postal Service has postponed its original April 26 implementation date. An “Industry Alert” sent to customers by the Postal Board of Governors late last week said that no date would be set until after PRC approval is received for market-dominant rates. “This decision was primarily motivated by a desire to eliminate potential adverse impacts on postal customers that might result from a staggered implementation of our new prices,” read the notice. “After considering the complexity of the required programming changes…[and] the specific complications that our customers might face…the Postal Service has decided to delay implementation until all of our proposed rates and classification changes can be implemented at one time.”

“Diamond Print Glitter is an eye catching product that has a “wow”” factor when people see it. I can’t remember when I have been so excited bringing a new product to market”, stated Rick Keber, Senior Product Manager for Midland’s Specialty Paper and Film division.
“Our Diamond Print Glitter brings the attention-getting look and feel of glitter to the print, packaging and label markets, with none of the mess common with traditional glitter,“ said John Gregory, VP of Commercial Paper Sales for Harmony Paper Company.
