    So I could buy a gajillion stamps for 41 cents and in 70 years when postal rates are $5 per envelope I could still use them?! I'm going to stock up!

    Andrew, No, we never use stamps at this company. We use postage meters which imprint that red, black or blue postage mark you'll see on your hospital bills, bank statements, etc. When a job gets screwed up that means we have to slit all the envelopes on a slitter machine then pull out the stuff inside and put it in a new envelope, then reseal and remeter at the correct postage. It wouldn't be bad if there was only a few hundred but when you have to redo 45,000... That'll put the breaks on your evening!
    It's much easier when everyone runs it correctly on the inserting machines - then the boss and I can go back to hiding in our corners and reading our books!

    So they overpaid by 1 cent? Wouldn't slitting, removing, new envelope, reprinting, cost way more than the error?

    One would think so eh? It's incumbant upon our company to foot the rework bill since it was our employees mistake whereas if the client calls and says "wait we sent the wrong inserts" and we've already run the job then in that case they have to pay for the rework.

    Try a fraction of a cent! Going from the mistake of $0.225 each down to $0.218 The job was a special mailing to get out before the price increase on Monday.
    "Anything less than perfect is unacceptable", "excellence endures" and all that company slogan BS!
