Now on Amazon: The Original Guard Your ID Advanced Security Roller 2.0 for Identity Theft Prevention Stamping Turquoise

"At Guard Your ID we are passionate about helping individuals protect their personal information. It is this desire to help that led us to develop the first identity protection stamp in July 2006, and why we continue to evolve and develop new identity tools today. One example of this evolution would be the Guard Your ID Advanced 2.0 Roller family. The specially formulated, oil-based ink of this roller is water-resistant, light-resistant, chemical resistant, clear, dark, and quick-drying. It can be applied to not only regular paper, but to most glossy surfaces. Our journey in creating the unique Guard Your ID Stamp pattern took several years. Over 100 patterns were tested during this process, and we finally emerged with the powerful, patented pattern we use today. The letters A, B, E, G, H, K, M, V, W, X were chosen based on their limited white space, and the letters were turned, angled, and positioned just right to offer the maximum coverage. ..."

Video | FedEx speedy and professional mail delivery; Setting quality standard for mail delivery

   


Huntsville, Alabama - A FedEx employee is caught on a Ring video setting a safe and quality example of how to deliver mail packages.

A Madison County resident says his Ring surveillance camera captured a FedEx employee sprinting to his porch to deliver a package. "Not only did the FedEx driver deliver the package quickly, but the courier carefully placed the package on the porch. The person was so quick they would not have even known there was a camera filming the delivery. The courier returned to the vehicle as quickly as they had approached the house and then carefully drove off to the next delivery. I was very impressed with the work ethic of this individual. Great job!"
