A new way to mail envies for just 42 cents?
Okay, I figure if anyone would know it's you guys/gals. I sure hope others are willing to do some testing along with me on this one.
I was replying to a SASE offer and noticed something on the person's want list that I had, so I was really busy throwing things around trying to find something to cushion the seed packet with that wouldn't throw me into a large envelope and/or over 1/4 inch thickness.
Weeeeeell...... guess what I finally landed on? AND, I think it really will work for smaller trades all the time...
It kept it under 1/4 inch, but gave plenty of padding to the seed envelope I put in the regular sized envelope.
All I did was I put my homemade seed packet on top of the piece of paper that I wrote the note on to the person who made the offer. I put some of the easter grass behind and along the sides of the packet and then on top of the packet. It was uniformly even and I folded the top of the note down over it and the bottom of the note up over it and placed it inside the outgoing envelope that was already addressed. I measured it to be sure, and yes, it was under 1/4 of an inch!
I may be overly excited at this finding, so what are your thoughts? Do you think this really could work as a long term, viable solution for smaller trades only costing 42 cents? The easter grass only cost me a buck at the dollar store and there's enough here for about 100 envies I could send out! LOL
If anyone wants to exchange one or two packets of seeds to test this out, please reply here and let's see what we can do! I definitely want to be sure it isn't causing anyone "postage due" or anything like that, so the more of us that test this, the better, especially those that have had problems in the past (unlike myself). Any volunteers?
