Wedding Invitations

In the more than two centuries since Benjamin Franklin was appointed our first Postmaster General in 1775, the Postal Service has grown and changed with America, boldly embracing new technologies to better serve a growing population.

1860 – Pony Express began
1863 – Free city delivery began
1896 – Rural free delivery began
1913 – Parcel Post began
1918 – Scheduled airmail service began
1950 – Residential deliveries reduced to one a day
1963 – ZIP Code inaugurated
1970 – Express Mail® began experimentally
1971 – United States Postal Service® began operations
2008 – Competitive pricing for expedited mail began

Since 1775, when the Second Continental Congress called for “a line of posts . . . from Falmouth in New England to Savannah in Georgia,” the United States Postal Service has delivered for America, reaching further as the nation has grown and moving faster as technology has developed.

The history of the United States Postal Service is rooted in a single, great principle: that every person in the United States – no matter who, no matter where – has the right to equal access to secure, efficient, and affordable mail service. (Referenced by

We at have used other services but none out weighs The United States Postal Service and their dedication. They even help us locate a package and reroute it as the recipient had to go out of town and missed their delivery. By far they have been superior in their endeavor to assist us.

We recently had wedding invitations mailed out through USPS and everyone at the post office was astounded by the new way our packaging showed off the beauty of our plastic bottled invitations. The new packaging allows us to preserve the look of the invitations. No longer do the mailing labels distract from the look of the personalized invitations, they truly become a keepsake of the bride and grooms very special day.

We want to thank USPS for taking such good care of and our beautiful message in a bottle greetings and invitations. Since we live in a relatively small town we have come to know each of the postal workers and they truly are very helpful and we appreciate them very much. We want to thank them for their hard work and dedication and for being a great representative for the US Postal Service.
