I received my April Turning Wheels yesterday via first classmail. The first one I have received timely since the change. The print on the labelis so small it is hard to read. The "DoNot Bend" and "First Class" need to be in large print.

I agree about the print needing to be LARGER, I thought We were recently told here on the Forum this was being addressed. maybe not really ?

Folks they have been increased four times since the change. I'll get them larger. I had no problem seeing mine that came last Saturday.

Explain to me why the font on the label needs to be larger. The only person who needs to be able to read the label is the postal authorities and they seem to be doing just fine. Or am I missing something?

Bob, and any One else that may be offended ! " I should have been more specific" My rant is focused on a small group of Employees at My local P.O., has no bearing on "as a hole". yet they have expert Folks that do the Job whole Hearted,that I have respect for. doesn't matter where or what one does for a Job/living,but if the attitude is I don't care,just want to put My time in. then to Me THEY are the idiots, one of My pet peeves !

My apologies.

Don, Just so you know, Good Friday and Easter Monday are postal holidays here in Canada. This may delay Turning Wheels somewhat.

You forgot to mention we haven't had mail delivery in Canada on Saturday since 1970. In the US, they still deliver mail on Saturday.

John great size and I can see it well and so can the bar code readers used by USPS

I am having a hard time believing the "do not bend" was enlarged 4 times, as it is right now that print is no larger than the rest of my address print size "small print it is"

Got mine today. Print on address label does seem small, but if it works, I don't care what size it is. I rip that part off and throw it away, like a banana peel.

By all means lets only discuss things that you or someone ordains to be worthy of an open discussion. Not something that a member feels should be talked about.

I love getting TURNING WHEELS every month. It's a true highlight. But has there been discussion about offering it as a .PDF or other electronic "magazine" format in addition to the hard copy? That would solve the "b*tch about the post office" issue....

Don, our April Turning Wheels was delivered by Canada Post yesterday afternoon, April 6th. For the record, we are currently receiving first class delivery. Since Canada Post apparently had it in their system on March 23rd, it took 14 days. Allowing for Good Friday, Easter Monday, Saturdays, Sundays, when CP doesn't work, that means they took 8 business days. It will be interesting to see what the difference there is between first class and standard delivery.

From my experience it doesn't matter how large "Do Not Bend" is--on anything, it does not affect many delivery persons' behavior. :p

Thanks Stu. One thing that slowed April's delivery down a bit were two major Northeast snowstorms within five days that some delay.

Well, Canadian members, May's Turning Wheels will be in the CPS tomorrow. Now it is up to the CPS to deliver it. Hopefully you will receive it in a POLY BAG with carrier pages covering the front and rear pictures. That's all I can assure you. If it arrives bent or the Poly Bag is torn it was done in the CPS. It'll be interesting to see how long it takes to get you. Thanks for working with me and I've done the best I can do to assure a prompt and clean delivery.
