WHAT, ME WORRY?  GOT MY 4TH ORDER DONE YESTERDAY!

MESSAGE IN EMAIL TODAY FROM STAMPS.COM, SEPT. 29, 2004.

  Dear Rodney,

The PhotoStamps program was available to the public under a market test with authorization by the US Postal Service. As of midnight (PST) September 30, 2004, we will cease taking orders in order to allow the Postal Service to conduct its review of the program. If you wish to create amazing holiday cards, unforgettable birthday invitations, special baby announcements, or a very unique gift, this could be your last chance to order!

We will be accepting orders up to tomorrow, September 30th at midnight, Pacific Time and will ship those orders over the following days. All PhotoStamps postage is considered valid US postage and can be used at any point in the future. Please note that the ceasing of orders affects only the PhotoStamps program and in no way impacts the regular Stamps.com PC Postage product or the Stamps.com online store.
 
  The USPS has informed us that they plan to make a decision on the future of the PhotoStamps program within the next 90 days. If you wish to express your interest in seeing the program continue, it would be extremely helpful. You may write to the following person:

Nick Barranca, VP Product Development
United States Postal Service
475 L'Enfant Plaza, SW, Room 5012
Washington, DC 20260-5012

  Also, if you wish, a letter to your representative in Congress could be very effective. In your letters, be sure to explain how you used the postage and what it meant to you or your friends and family to be able to include your own photo on valid US postage.

From everyone here at PhotoStamps, we want to say thank you for supporting our product. The response has been overwhelming - and we have all been impressed by the fun, creative, and exciting ways you chose to use PhotoStamps.

Thank you,

The PhotoStamps Team
