With all the hectic activity at the holidays, wouldn’t it be wonderful if there were a place where you could buy a gift, wrap it, package it and ship it, all at one location? Well, there is such a place in Owasso. Pack and Mail Plus offers a whole array of gift choices for those you love and every imaginable option for getting those gifts into the right hands.
As owners Duane and Lisa Coppick say, “Our whole concept is that you can buy your gift here, wrap it, package it and ship it. We offer one stop shopping and services for all your out-of-town needs.”
Great gift ideas abound at Pack and Mail Plus: wine and beverage totes, backpacks with martini or hot cocoa set-ups, candles and candle warmers, aromatic diffusers, handmade jewelry and much more. For the kids, you can find stuffed animals, backpacks, journals, pen and pencil sets and many other items to bring holiday joy to a young heart. If there has been a recent new arrival in your circle of friends and family, check out Pack and Mail Plus’s selection of handmade crocheted blankets which make perfect heirlooms to cherish for a lifetime. For Owasso Ram fans the selection of embroidered Owasso Ram shirts will be a perfect gift.
The word “Mail” in Pack and Mail plus refers to more than just shipping. If you like to add a unique touch to your mailings, be sure to ask about the Three Designing Women Rubber Stamp, which is formed with your own original stamp design and can be used for office or personal use. The staff at Pack and Mail Plus can also help you put together personalized notepads and stationery, either for yourself or as a gift. “We have one customer who has pre-chosen two designs, one for men and one for women,” says Lisa Coppick. “When she wants to send a customer appreciation gift to her clients, she calls and has us make up a stationery packet and then we mail the gift.”
This last idea has become popular with other business owners as well, especially with builders and realtors, who like to give a nice but reasonably priced gift to home-buyers at closing. “They often order stationery, personalized rubber stamps or return labels with their client’s new address,” Lisa notes. “And we have a whole line of ‘just moved’ stationery which makes a great gift as well.”
There are many other ways to commemorate the holidays at Pack and Mail Plus. Duane notes that a lot of people bring in pictures and important dates and let the staff at Pack and Mail Plus create a Christmas photo calendar. “These are great for families, to help everyone remember birthdays and other special occasions in the coming year.” The photo pages can be created with one photo or a collage of photos whichever you prefer. Pack and Mail Plus can also help you create personalized Christmas cards or postcards to send to your friends and family.
Are you planning a holiday party? Let Pack and Mail Plus help you create the perfect invitation for your get-together. In fact, Pack and Mail Plus can help with any type of invitation, which is especially important at the first of the year when thoughts turn to wedding planning. If you are planning a wedding in the near future and want to create a one-of-a-kind wedding invitation rather than ordering a pre-cut design from a book, bring in your ideas and photos and let the staff at Pack and Mail Plus help you design the invitation of your dreams.
No matter what your holiday gift or stationery needs, you will want to check out all of the options Pack and Mail Plus has to offer. If you are planning to ship a gift, Duane suggests you come in at least ten days before you need the gift to arrive. Regular hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. From December 11 through Christmas Eve, hours will be extended on Monday through Thursday until 7 p.m. and on Saturday until 3 p.m.
