Fairrington Featured in Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum

09/13/2016

si_npm_logoOn Sept. 13, the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum launched a new virtual exhibition, “America’s Mailing Industry,” telling the story of the partnership between the U.S. Postal Service and private industry, who together have helped American citizens and businesses communicate and conduct business for more than 200 years.

It is the story of a partnership that helps people shop, ship, deliver, communicate and conduct transactions, gain information, seek entertainment, build relationships, enhance communities and foster citizenship.

Fairrington is proud to be a featured partner. Visit our exhibit page at http://postalmuseum.si.edu/americasmailingindustry/Fairrington.html.

The partnership between the mailing industry and the postal system is a critical part of the American economy, as its total economic value exceeds $1 trillion and it employs almost 8 million people.

Future plans include the design and construction of an on-site physical “America’s Mailing Industry” exhibition at the museum.
