‘Mainstream Media Miss: Postal Service Will NOT Sell Clothing’

“To clarify a press release issued recently, the Postal Service is not entering the apparel business. For a royalty, the Postal Service is licensing the words ‘Rain, Heat & Snow’ and other Postal Service trademarks for commercial use by a clothing manufacturer. By agreement, the manufacturer will be able to use these words and trademarks on clothing or clothing labels, and in advertisements, in ways approved by the Postal Service. Other than this licensing agreement, the Postal Service has no relationship with the manufacturer. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.”More. (Via Romenesko)
