I’ve never had custom envelopes. I’ve got company letterhead, and of course I’ve got business cards, but given how few snail-mail letters I send, it just didn’t seem worth it to pay for custom envelopes.
As a result, I confess to always having had a bit of envelope envy. And each time I’d receive a beautifully designed, logo-laden parcel from one of my colleagues, I’d wince just a bit to think of the plain, white containers I use.
Those days are over. Thanks to a very neat service called Stamps.com, I now use custom-made stamps with my logo. They’re self-stick, and yes, they are honest to goodness, 100% authentic, U.S. postage. A sheet of twenty, 41 cent stamps costs about 90 cents each (less if you buy in larger quantities). They’re so unique, even the folks at my local post office do a double-take.
Try it for yourself, and be envious no more.
