3-d embellishments and glitter for cards
Adore the wonderful products sold for cards and scrapbooking, but my concern is how the cards perform with all the layer over layer of 3-D embellishments, and using glitter..
I have found that the post office machines crush the layers of cut-outs, and often press so hard, the glitter is often partially or completely removed by the time it reaches its destination.
I have tried writing: "Hand cancel please" on the envelopes, but it rarely seems to work.
I have resorted to layering a small bubble pad over the card to protect my work, and keep it out of the machine, but postage costs increase.
Any other ideas? Anything work for others? Aside from hand delivering the cards….
My post about 23 cents may be incorrect. I heard I was wrong. That there’s no charge. So I looked it up, and couldn’t find any reference to it USPS site.
The USPS requires an extra 23 cent stamp to hand cancel. I don’t have a problem with bulk or glitter when I include the extra stamp with the request. However, there have been lost pearls and flat back rhinestones even with hand canceling.
I watch a lot of Youtube there is a card maker that sends her cards in the padded manilla envelopes. She figures you put the time and effert into it whats a little more postage to make sure it gets there safe.
