Decorated Envelopes

With the postal rates having gone up again, it's time to fight back by spicing up our envelopes! At least if they're going to be 41 cents they may as well look fun and interesting. Here is a regular letter envelope that I stamped with a single image repeatedly on the bottom and up the right-hand side. (the recipient's name has been covered over). Isn't that so easy? You just need one stamp and one ink pad or marker to spruce up an envelope. Luckily, I was able to send this right before the new rates took effect.

In today's digital age most people have online banking and send e-cards. But if you're like me and still enjoy sending greeting cards in the mail, don't forget to buy the new *forever* stamps - you can still use them even if the prices go up again. Click here to see the new postal rate chart
