    I dont know if all areas have got these new info notices but i cant stand them there difficult to write on and i think they are not nearly as imformative as the old ones. What can i say i hate change lol i felt the old ones worked just well I understand they are trying to implement change with this "UPS Access Point" that in it self sounds like it going to be a headache.

    It's not just my own experience then that they're more difficult to write on. I'd say that's the biggest con. I also don't like how they switched from a yellow to white header. Besides that I like the new ones better. They tell the customers to sign the back and I'm getting more signed delivery notices now as a result.

    I just laugh at all the money UPS spent integrating the new notices in before using up all the old ones and now I realize, they must have saved a ton instead using inferior paper that I can't even write on with a sharpie without smearing.

    Oh, well, not worth the Chinese child labor used to pick the cotton the paper was made of.

    I thought I just had a bad pen. They are terrible to write on.

    Wait until you see the English/Spanish versions. You literally need a magnifying glass to read the things.

    Glad they removed the times, got tired of checking all 4 boxes thanks to my superb, well thought out dispatch.

    I like them. They don't take ink so that's brilliant! I stopped trying to write on them. The bar code works.

    The glue on the back (left side) doesn't allow you to use a pen to write on. I like the old ones better.

    I hated the my choice ones when they came out. So I'll give it a little time.

    They are not as sticky as the old ones. Things I like: no time specified, no delivery attempt # (I can forget to cross that I will be there tomorrow, for example.)

    They are harder to write on, but for the tiny minority that actually read them, meh.

    I've been driving 10 years. Every year they get less sticky. Probably saves a nickle per stack.

    Seeing the delivery windows go was probably what I liked best. I never know who's running the route from one day to the next or how they're going to run it or what ORION's gonna say so it was pretty much pointless.

    Though I hate how prominent the Access Point crap is on it, as well as no delivery attempt number, oh yeah, and the fact you can't write on them.

    I like them minus the difficulty writing the date on the sticky glue. The rest can be shifted away from the strip to avoid it. These seem quicker to fill out which probably means 20 more stops per driver and at least one cut route.

    I'm lazy and write at least as possible on the notes, so the change doesn't bother me at all.

    They'd stick better if people cleaned the filth off of their doors and/or windows.

    They look bland as crap. Like they saved money having them white instead of paying for a little color.

    But simple isn't necessarily bad.


    I thought the blue my choice ones looked like :censored2: but they grew on me.

    Not it's not. But a little color would class them up a bit. These look like we just didn't want to use color except for our logo.
