Mail

So while you are trying to figure out the final design for your product, that should't stop you from doing other administrative things that need to be done. Whether you run your business out of a home, or out of a 100,000 square foot warehouse, you still need a mailing address. I would recommend not using your home address as the last thing you want is someone showing up at your home.

The simplest solution is to get yourself a Post Office Box. I was looking at the local post office, and its $99 for the year for a 3x5 post office box. You will need this anyway to set up merchant accounts, take delivery of documents, and show an address for other legal matters. I need to go to the post office this week and figure out the logistics. Can they mail forward? Can they take more mail then will actually fit in the box? Can I have an actual street address for Fedex and UPS to deliver to?

Here are the resources I checked out:

The UPS Store provides boxes as well with a real street address. Might be easier to handle as well.

You can also check out mail forwarding services. Let me know if you have more ideas.
