Square shaped golf clubs are definitely ‘In” but square shaped Christmas cards are “Out”

Mantara XL DriverYou can bet that there will be a lot of people receiving square shaped golf clubs under the Christmas tree this year, like our Acer Mantara and Power Play System Q2 families, as it is the hottest trend in golf. But before you purchase and send out Christmas cards this year, you might want to re-think what shape to get. Apparently “square” is not friendly when it comes to the United States Postal Service as it is when it comes to the golf industry.

While you may think that a square greeting card will stand out amongst the multitude of cards that fellow family and friends will receive, there is something you should be aware of first. You might be surprised to know that they are subject a 17 cent surcharge on First Class Mail to process a square greeting card that weighs 13 oz. or less. The sorting machines were designed to process standard rectangular shaped mail. Most likely the surcharge deals with the additional hand-sorting that is required or referred to as “nonmachineable”.
