Lisa Coppick points out samples of invitations and note cards available to patrons of Pack & Mail Plus.
It would probably be easier to tell you what Pack & Mail Plus is not, rather than what it is. Pack & Mail Plus is a service-packed business that caters to individuals and businesses. And this season’s focus is on invitations and announcements of any shape, form or fashion. If you’re thinking wedding, birthday, anniversary, new baby, first communion, graduation, wedding shower, special occasion or anything in between, it would be worth a trip to Pack & Mail Plus in Owasso.
The store offers a complete line of invitations, thank you cards, place cards and note cards; all for any occasion and they’re available in English or Spanish. They also offer mix-or-match napkins and other items that combine to tie a table presentation together in a tidy, presentable package. Some items, like those produced from their line of Carlson Craft products, have a minimum order requirement and may require up to two weeks to produce. But most of the offerings produced in-house have no minimum order requirements and can be ready in only one or two days. Ever forget one important item for a special occasion, like a wedding program? Duane and Lisa say they’ve saved the day on more than one occasion by performing overnight miracles.
Pack & Mail Plus also offers save-the-date and change-of-address cards, personalized stationary, return address labels and personalized stamps and notepads.
In addition to all these services, Pack & Mail Plus also has a great little gift center. And they feature special sections for girls and boys. Many customers regularly shop the store, find the perfect occasion gift, have it gift wrapped, packaged and mailed, all at Pack & Mail Plus. The store’s primary service is packaging and shipping. They also sell stamps at post office price, and ship and receive freight for DHL, UPS and FedEx.
Pack & Mail Plus also caters to businesses out of town. Companies establish themselves with an Owasso street address and a mailbox that enables them to ship and receive packages and mail from the Pack & Mail Plus location. Additionally, they can tap into a service enabling them to send and receive faxes right from Pack & Mail Plus.
