Use Up Small Envelopes
July 16 Is the deadline mailers
have to use up small and undersized
envelopes and cards. Kings
Mountain Postmaster Fred Weaver
Major William Loftin, Jr., son of
Mr. and Mrs. Major Loftin of Kings
Mountain, has been promoted to
Assistant Commercial Officer at
Otlsens A National Bank In Atlanta,
Mr. Loftin joined the Bank's
nuuiagement associate program In
1B77. With experience In the credit
department and branch banking, he
la presently csish management sales
coordinator In the Bank’s corporate
cash management area.
He holds a bachelor's degree In
economics from the University of
North Carolina and an MBA degree
tai Finance from Duke University.
Starting that date, the Postal
Service makes Its new size stan
dards effective. Cards and en
velopes measuring less than 8^
inches high or 6 Inches long no
longer will be mailable and will be
returned to sender.
Extra large First-Class en
velopes—more than by llH
Inches will Incur a 7-cent surcharge
If they weigh one ounce or less.
Postmuter Weaver advises these
oversized pieces will be returned to
the sender If they do not carry the 7
cent surcharge but can be remalled
If the surcharge postage then Is
affixed. However, delays for these
pieces can be avoided If mailers
make sure that sufficient postage
has been applied.
The new regulation also will
prohibit thin or flimsy cards. After
July 16, the cards must be at least
seven thousandths (.(X)7) of an Inch
"Small envelopes and flimsy
cards tend to jam mall processing
equipment and cause damage to
other mall as well,” explained
Postmaster Weaver. "The sur
charge on overslaod or odd-shi^Md
pieces Is Intended to cover the added
cost of handling such pieces which
must be processed manually,” he
saM "These standards have bewi
established to allow the Postal
Service to process mall more ef
ficiently and this will mean better
service for customers.”
