Design Inspiration
///////////////////////////////

When designing mailing tools, consider the number your are mailing at one time as well as the number of times you may mail over the next year. Utilizing a permit imprint saves you time placing stamps on each item as well as saving money. There are several things you can do with an imprint that will have to be added to your camera ready layout. *******

In addition to retail postage (stamps), if you are mailing more than 200 at one time, Gregath can get you a marketing discount and you can skip the stamps. If mailing more than 500 at one time, first class mail imprint (no stamps) may be an economical option.

For your information – in case you hadn’t noticed yet: USPS has renamed their business class mail rate again. Add standard mail rate to history along with third class, second class, and bulk mail. For business imprint, Standard Mail is still current, with USPS instructing the change to Marketing mail in the future.

The objective of this work was to identify any and all of the early land patents that were located (partially or completely) within present-day Madison County, Kentucky and to prepare an alphabetical index of these patents arranged by the name of each grantee. The patent database from which the Madison County patents were to be identified was the Virginia Series and Old Kentucky Series of patents for the State of Kentucky that are housed at the Kentucky Secretary of State Land Office in Frankfort, Kentucky. Confirmation that a patent was located within Madison County (completely or partially) was to be established by creating a series of maps depicting the approximate location of each patent within the county.
