Philosateleian Post sets new records in 2017
2017 drew to a close a little over two weeks ago, but before it did, Philosateleian Post set some new records.
Throughout the course of 2017, Philosateleian Post carried 417 pieces of outgoing mail. That total, which does not include nearly 30 other pieces of mail that were misdelivered or needed to be returned to sender, represents a 27% increase over 2016, and it tops Philosateleian Post’s previous record of 408 pieces of outgoing mail established in 2014. The establishment of the new record follows two years of declining mail volumes.
“‘Real mail’ is alive and well so far as Philosateleian Post is concerned,” says proprietor Kevin Blackston. “In Philosateleian Post’s first year (2004), less than 100 pieces of mail were carried. We’re looking forward to another big year in 2017.”
Business mail comprised over 61% of Philosateleian Post’s volume, with letters and cards representing nearly another 18%. Approximately 10% of the mail carried was addressed to international destinations. Packages, postcards, and local deliveries made up the remainder.
