WHY DO WE SHIP FOR FREE?
WHY DO WE US THE US POSTAL SERVICE?
Why do we ship USPS? For one it is the most cost effective option, however; this is not the only reason. In the previous section we mentioned pricing and how our aim was to create a scenario where our designs were available to a larger group of people. Our love for the US Postal Service has to do with that idea.
The USPS as an organization has been around since 1775 during the second continental congress. Benjamin Franklin was the Post Master General at that time. For 245 years this child of the revolution has been a corner stone and a foundation for our democracy. Our ability to communicate with each other is an unwavering anchor for our nation. Because of that, this service has been an affordable, cost effective option for almost everyone in the country. When we started Maroon Bell Outdoor, it was the post office who reached out to us. They set us up with an account, explained how everything worked and helped us grow into what we are today.
Sometimes we get the question, why do you personally deliver all of the packages to the post office? Can't you schedule deliveries? Our answer is always the same; "Yes, we could schedule deliveries but then we wouldn't be part of the process". You see, shipping your package is a process for us that we love being involved with. We know the folks at the post office, we say hi to them, they are part of our community, part of our company and they are helping us, as well as thousands of other small businesses achieve their dreams.
