A Stamp Date Stamp
Wednesday, October 05, 2011
I’m feeling quite pleased with myself.
In Staying Ahead of the Avalanche 4 and related posts I’ve described my efforts at touching contacts, mainly with postal mail.
Inevitably I run out of my customized postage stamps, (Running out of Picture Postage Stamps), or get enthusiastic and run of an abundance of letters, and then I’m faced with a small hill of addressed envelopes waiting to go out.
Of course I want to keep my mailings roughly in sequence, and one day last week found me sorting a wad of envelopes in name sequence, then cross-checking them, record-by-record, against my data base.
What a waste of my time!
This morning I hit on the idea of augmenting my envelope macro to drop the print-date right where it will be hidden by the postage stamp.
Once they arrive!
