Last month we diverted a fair amount of time and attention to engineering
and repair of the machinery, but still got a couple of castings done. We offer Collection No. 30: a company or so of doughboys, and some flags, in observance of the centennial of the Great War. Have your own private army! And Cochin 24pt is back in stock.
Now the bad news. The US Postal Service implemented a fairly hefty price increase in January. About a decade ago, when Flat Rate Boxes were first introduced, Skyline adopted a flat rate shipping policy—any order, anywhere in the USA, for $8, which is what an FRB cost to mail at that time. Despite annual postage increases, we have NEVER raised our flat shipping charge. (International orders go at actual cost.) Our philosophy is to keep it simple for our customers and subsidize the cost, and that has been good business. Well folks, something’s gotta give eventually, and that time has come. Effective today the domestic flat shipping charge is $10.00—and that’s still several dollars below our cost. So take advantage of this subsidized shipping and
send us a big order!
The Mono-Blox we released in December has been extraordinarily popular. Stock is down to 24 fonts and may sell out, so don’t delay. And we have plenty more good stuff planned for this year, so stay tuned.
