Default Speaking of postage. . .

When you mail a card that has buttons or eyelets or something else bumpy, do you just stick it in the envelope as is? Or do you put a layer of junk (aka ugly color) cardstock in between the envelope and the card?

I sometimes wonder if my cards will end up ripped up somewhere in postal machinery with all the eyelets I like to use. They aren't too thick to fit throught the postal service slit they use to measure if you need extra postage, but they are bumpy.

What do YOU do?

Default Postage on Bumpy Cards

If you think it is pretty bumpy you need to take it to the post office as they have a piece of cardboard with a slit to see if it fits through there. It it doesn't sometimes it needs extra postage or sometimes just need to be "hand-stamped". One day I took one of the cards I made that had three eyelets on the front and it was in one of SU clear envelopes. I was worried that I would have to pay extra postage. The postmaster said that putting it in the clear envelope was better than a reg. one because they people sorting the mail could see that it might not fit through the slit. Carol
