We hope you enjoy receiving The Bluffton Sun newspaper safe and dry in your mailbox on the first and third Tuesday every month. To ensure you continue receiving your free copy of our “good news” paper, we need your help.

Inside this issue of The Bluffton Sun, you will find a free-standing insert from us that we ask you to fill out, tear along the perforations on the insert, and drop the postage-paid card in the mail.

This action will do two things: First, it will confirm that you want to continue receiving the newspaper without interruption, and second, it will provide a savings to us on the postal rates we pay to get the newspaper into your home.

With the ever-escalating costs of producing, printing and mailing your newspaper, we continually strive to provide you the highest quality local newspaper while maintaining control of the costs of doing so. As you may imagine, postage is one of our company’s largest expenses, and it is the one area that savings are available to us if we get these prepaid postcards back from you.

This will assure you we can continue to deliver to your address on a complimentary basis.

Over the past 20 years, The Bluffton Sun has become the “go-to” resource for local news and information, and a tremendous resource to you – our readers. Our talented group of reporters, writers, columnists and contributors provide timely and relevant local news and information, and our advertisers share their messages and offerings with you in the pages of our publication.

Your continued support of these local businesses, and their commitment to our newspaper, has allowed us to grow – both in the number of pages we provide to our readers and in the number of households we reach with each issue.

While we continue in our mission of “Serving the smiling faces, and beautiful places of greater Bluffton and Okatie,” we simply ask for 30 seconds of your time to fill out and return the prepaid postcard in today’s paper.

You can also go online to freeblufftonsun.com to complete the form online.

As always, we appreciate your continued readership, your attention and your support.

Kevin Aylmer is the publisher of The Bluffton Sun.
