The USPS now has three different “shoebox” sizes of priority boxes for your convenience. This works extremely well for small format books, as the small box costs less to ship.

Keeping in mind shipping costs while setting a book’s price, many choose to send their mailings USPS Media Mail.  As with any class of mail, this one has some rules you may not be aware of.  One of which is that no billing invoice or advertisement may be placed in the box.  As always when sending through the post office, packing slip/inventory with arrival address is still encouraged.

How to print just that certain section only.
Software: Microsoft Internet Explorer/Outlook Express

Ever want to print out a small (or even large) section of a page or e-mail that was somewhere in the middle without printing our the entire page/message?  Here’s what to do:

Highlight what you want to print (while holding your left mouse button down, slide your mouse over the text and then let up the button) and then on your keyboard hold down the control (ctrl) button while hitting the “p” key.  This will bring up a box to do with printing.  Toward the middle of the box on the left side is a “print range” area.  Click the circle next to “selection” and then the OK button at the bottom.  Yes, it’s that simple. NOTE: if the page contains columns (with or without a table) this may get unexpected results – pay attention to what the mouse will let you highlight.
