Rediscovering uses for snail mail

By Bruce Firestone | Uncategorized

Aug 14

Whole new business models are being invented/reinvented using snail mail, which might not go extinct after all, or, at least, not ‘til the internet is connected to 3-D printers to deliver stuff/create/make things in your home or drones start flying in your cat door to deliver a liter of milk to your fridge…

I got a nice surprise via CPC (Canada Post Corporation); a supplier of mine sent me a quick pay Tim CARD with a million dollars on it (OK, not really, 50 bucks).

Tim Hortons allows users to personalize it too so now mine is a collector item. 

It shows a younger Bruce Firestone together with former Sens player Frank Finnigan (who was helping us with our Bring Back the Senators campaign in 1990). 


Thank you so much, Sean.

postscript: I also really like those biz models that allow you to upload a personal photo and send a postcard with that image on it to anyone via snail mail or create a long lasting canvas out of one of your pictures and have it delivered (framed) by CPC, USPS, FedEx, UPS…
