Hello!  Many of you may remember that the US Postal Service created and sold bug stickers last year that tied in with the Summer Reading Program.  This year the US Postal Service has created a line of Be Creative and Express Yourself products.  You can view their catalog at: www.postalproducts.com.  The letter below describes specific products public library may be particularly interested in.

FYI:  The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) is fully aware of this project.  One CSLP member consults with Adam Meitz from the US Postal Services to ensure that there are no copyright infringements.  If you have any questions or concerns please let me know and I will share them with CSLP.

2009 Summer Library Catalog    



                Summer is almost here! Just like last year, Postal  Products Unlimited, Inc. is helping support reading this summer by offering a  full line of U.S.P.S. licensed products and other high quality educational items.  We have had several requests this year for an online catalog. You can now view  the catalog and order online by visiting www.postalproducts.com and clicking  on the America’s Libraries banner.    

Our 2009 Summer Library catalog  is intended to be used in conjunction with your upcoming workshops.     


                Libraries around the country have already showed  significant interest in several key products. Our beginning of the year “Hot  Items” include:    


·          Water-color-your-own  Wall Art    

·          Refreshment cups    

·          Recycled plastic  book bags for the circulation desk    

·          Educational  posters    

·          Easy Tack Flannel  Boards    

·          Custom Library  Banners    

·          Custom Library  rubber stamp    


We  are especially happy to offer custom rubber stamps, personalized with your  library’s name. Postal Products Unlimited, Inc. has an official license with  the United States Postal Service. This license enables us to use the phenomenal  artwork found on postage stamps to enhance our products, giving you a mature  and educational product line for your summer program. In addition, Postal  Products is committed to helping libraries reduce their carbon footprint by  offering a selection of “Green” items to support summer reading at your  library. Embroidered organic caps, recycled book-bags for the circulation desk,  all-natural sketch journals for the incentive program – every little bit helps!    


                Also, we are offering a revolutionary new product:  The Easy Tack Board. These boards are designed to replace your old Flannel  Boards for story time. Made from a special self-adhesive fabric, anything will  stick to theses boards and come right off without leaving any residue. No  longer do librarians have to attach flannel, Velcro, magnets or tape to  pictures. Items will stay in place until you remove them, making changes quick and  easy. If the board becomes dirty, simple was with soap and water to restore  tackiness! On www.postalproducts.com  simply click on the Easy Tack button to the left of the banner.    


                As always, ordering through Postal Products Unlimited,  Inc. is quick and easy. Each catalog has a printed order form in the back.  Libraries can call our main number anytime to place an order, and we also  accept faxed and emailed orders as well. Or feel free to order online at www.postalproducts.com    


                Finally, feel free to call me any time with questions,  concerns, or to request special pricing on quantity purchases. If you would  like to request samples of our educational poster series for your workshops  feel free to call me to request them. Call if you require additional hard-copy  catalogs, and we will be happy to mail them out to you. I look forward to the  opportunity to enhance your Summer Reading Program!
