Kudos to the USPS in Missouri

January 18th, 2017 by

A Folsom Pak Mail customer mailed a package via USPS Priority Mail to Germany. I track all international packages to ensure they don’t wind up in the wrong place. Well, this package went to Missouri. Actually it was going in circles between a small town and the St. Louis sort center. I called the small town post office and reached a very helpful USPS employee. He searched the database (all mail is visually scanned and an image is maintained) and saw the problem. Evidently another package’s bar code “copied” onto the Germany package. With today’s automation, the scanners were seeing the copied bar code and sending it to the small post office in Missouri. The scanners in the local post office did not recognize the address and immediately sent it back to the St. Louis sort center. Round and round it went. The local USPS employee put an “interrupt” message in the system so the scanner would kick the package out for human intervention. An USPS employee inked out the copied bar code and the package was on its way to Germany. Today I heard the Germany relatives received their Christmas present.

We all have choices regarding shipping. And the biggest differentiation between me and my competitors is I look out for my customers. I am not one to brag but I will go the extra mile for you.

Thanks to my customers for your business.

Box Going To 3-year Old Cancer Survivor

November 27th, 2016 by

On July 31st we shipped artwork created by a local artist.  See Artwork for a Cancer Patient.  It was sent to Ben, a 3-year old fighting cancer.  Now the same artist boxed up a lot of small gifts and we shipped the box.  Below is an image of the opened box.  On the left is a super hero (Ben’s favorite) advent calendar.

Once again I thank the artist for the opportunity to be of service and thank her for reminding me of the true meaning of the holiday season.

Kind Words From a Customer LP Folsom

August 13th, 2016 by

Artwork is always a challenge as no two pieces are the same.  At Folsom Pak Mail I do not use off-the-shelf boxes to ship artwork.  My experience is the foam inserts move, resulting in damaged art pieces.  So while a little more expensive, I custom pack each piece of art.  The custom packing means each part of the packing fits exactly right and as I pack, I make adjustments to ensure the artwork is protected.  I originally packed the artwork in styrofoam and corrugated cardboard.  Normally this works well but the length and width of the painting along with the frame depth created a depression in the middle.  So I repacked the painting at no additional cost to the customer.

I built a wooden crate to house the artwork.  This took the weight from 18 lbs to 79 lbs.  But I was assured the artwork would be protected as the wood did not compress.  And because of the dimensional weight pricing factor, it cost no more to ship.

My decision was proven correct in two ways: First, the artwork arrived in pristine condition.  Secondly, the customer’s son (the recipient of this artwork) had this to say.

Kevin –

The painting arrived at its destination last Thursday in perfect shape. My son’s comment was, “he knows what he is doing”.

Artwork For Cancer Patient

July 31st, 2016 by

Folsom Pak Mail packs and ships a lot of artwork.  Some artwork has a special story behind it.  This is one of those stories.

One of our customers called and explained they had drawn a Batman picture for a little boy named Ben.  Ben is a 3 year old super hero fan fighting kidney cancer. See Ben’s Superheroes.

We were pleased our customer chose Folsom Pak Mail to pack and ship this encouraging gift.  While the artist wishes to remain anonymous, we want to recognize her for her compassion and artistic skill.  Below is the artwork.

With all that is going wrong in the world, it is uplifting to see and participate in such a kind act.

Superhero Ben



The artist contacted me and shared the following link with me.  It takes you to an article about Ben.  It is nice to see the artist’s work was featured in the article.  Ben’s Article


Folsom Pak Mail Now Ships Wine

July 23rd, 2016 by

Folsom Pak Mail now ships wine.  We offer 1-bottle, 2-bottle, 3-bottle, 6-bottle, and 12-bottle boxes approved by UPS for wine shipping.  Call us at 916-990-9002 for a quote.  When you call, we will also check the weather for the destination zip code as hot or cold weather can ruin the wine.  You don’t want the wine riding in the truck any longer than necessary.  The back of the trucks are not air-conditioned nor heated.  We recommend UPS Express vs Ground shipping.  Express goes via air and the cargo hold is cooler.  Ground goes via train or trucks. Ground takes several days to travel cross-country and the wine will experience the heat and cold of the pod container.  We will also ask you to make sure an adult is home to sign for the wine shipment as it cannot be left on the doorstep.  Again, with Express there is a delivery date commitment while Ground delivery dates are “no sooner than” dates.  Lastly, we recommend shipping wine on Mondays and Tuesdays.  Get that wine to the recipient by Friday.  Otherwise, it may sit in a trailer at the terminal (hot or cold weather issues).  Again, extreme temperatures are not kind to wine.

Kind Words From A Customer

Customers visit the Folsom Pak Mail website and request quotes to pack and ship household goods. We frequently win the business. Here is a comment from a recent customer.

Kevin. I really want to thank you for all of your help. This was a pretty difficult move because I had to relocate my father-in-law from the bay area to Minot North Dakota and then I was responsible for getting his belongings there. Thank you so much for all of your help you made it so much easier. JCB-Folsom area

Pak Mail just got bigger!

May 6th, 2016 by

It is always nice to be wanted. And a few weeks ago Annex Brands acquired the Pak Mail franchise system. Annex Brands started years ago as a mail store and has grown by acquiring other mail store franchise systems. So now Pak Mail is part of the largest privately owned mailing/packing/shipping/freight franchise system in the US. For more details regarding Annex Brands and the official press release, click here.

Now, what does this mean to you and me?  I am very excited as Annex Brands has a substantial number of supplemental products and services Folsom Pak Mail can offer.  I am reviewing these products and will bring them into the store over the next few months.

In the meantime my store remains a Pak Mail franchise with its many benefits to you.  Thanks for being my customer.
