Wah today new discovery at Pos Malaysia. We send greeting cards for the 2 major festive seasons every year and only today I found out about the standard and requirements. Last year we sent it at RM0.45 so this year I decided to check out the cost since we changed to a smaller and hence lighter card.
Me – How much postage is required for this Hari Raya Card?
Postgirl – 50 sen.
Me – Huh? Wah so expensive one?? Why leh?
Postgirl – Oh because you used stick on a label for the address and you stamped the sender address at the wrong place. So this is considered non-standard.
Me – Huh?!!?
Postgirl – You should stamp the sender’s address on top left corner of envelope and not use the stick on labels for standard cost at 30 sen only.
Me – Wah, that’s 20 sen savings and times by 100 cards it’s like RM20.00 savings leh!
(Eh to Laundryamah’s small business, every sen counts leh!)
So folks, remember, when sending greeting cards, make sure follow the standard requirements if not end up paying more for nothing! The labels also cost a bomb too but then I was fortunate to have someone very nice who donated a few boxes to me last time…hehehe..
