Sandi Sabonis  sandi

Sandi Sabonis grew up in the mid-west, moving from Lawrence, Kansas in 1994 with her job for Coca-Cola Enterprises to settle in Frisco, Texas; where she has lived for the last 22 years. She met her husband Chris in 1998 and they married in 2001. Together they opened Zip it Postal Center in 2006 in Little Elm. The original store was located in the Lowe’s shopping center and moved to the Kroger Marketplace when it opened in 2011. We love serving and doing business in the Little Elm community with the home-town, lake feeling it provides.

Prior to opening the store, Sandi had a successful career in software development in various industries with companies such as Ash Grove Cement Company, Coca-Cola Enterprises, and Countrywide Home Loans (now Bank of America). She has a son attending University of North Texas in Denton. Sandi enjoys sharing new recipes over dinner parties with friends and family, making home-made skincare treatments, laughing with her husband, and playing with her two rescue dogs.

Zip it Postal Center provides full service shipping and mailing, utilizing UPS, FedEx, LSO, DHL, and USPS products. Printing (both large and small format), copying, binding, laminating, fax, notary, private mail box rental, greeting cards, and gifts round out the other offerings at the store. Sandi’s background in computer software and her self-taught graphic design capabilities allow Zip it Postal Center offer customers these additional services.
