Model Plane Foam business card

I cut some of these foam business cards today. They look pretty nice and speak very simply. 4" x 6" sample size of material.

Cutting it close probably on SmartPost size. "Maximum 130" combined length and girth." That box would take up a lot of space in a little USPS delivery Jeep. Might have some USPS drivers cursing your names lol.

Come on guys is hard being a ups driver carying all the small light boxes from the brown truck to your door 10 to 25 ft away .If any longer than 25 ft they just throw them to the porch . Yea i know its cold or hot out sometimes but after 29 years of me being a carpenter i would trade them for some heat in their truck in winter and a little shade and breeze when its 100 degrees out. joe
