uh they are privatized nonprofit business. It was a gov function and they make there own revinue now so they can do this stuff. Those sponsors are paid for with like the certified mail set up and the next day air and stuff..not that 37 cents you stick to an envilope.

As a former postal carrier :)D ), I know the USPS only handles about 10% of the parcel mail. The post office doesn't get any government money, they're funded entirely by stamps. (At one point, they tried to block UPS, FedEx, etc from using zip codes, since the USPS developed that system.)

Still kinda weird to see them running ads and such, but they seem to be able to afford it.

^^^ yeah princess bride!:D

well I would have guessed that they wouldn't have been able to sponsor anything, so that kind of suriprises me. So thats gov't allotted money that they are giving out, or profit from stamps?
