Post Office to Test Preprinted Postage on Holiday Greeting Cards

The Associated Press reports, "Sticking stamps on all those holiday or birthday cards could become a thing of the past."

"The Postal Service wants to test the idea of letting greeting card companies preprint postage on the envelopes they include with their cards," writes reporter Randolph E. Smid.

He goes on to say, "The post office hopes that by making it easier to send cards it will win back some of the business it has been losing to the Internet.  Full details haven't been published yet, but the test is expected to last up to two years. Card makers presumably would add the cost of the postage to the price of the card."
