Clear Bags Snafu
Well cr*p. I ordered what I thought were the right size clear bags for sets of xmas cards, but it turned out I either miss-measured or got confused. Instead of holding sets of 4 or 6 cards and envelopes, it barely holds one card and envelope, and doesn't close at that.
Back to the catalog. The envelopes aren't the problem ~ it's the postage & handling and tax, bringing a $7 initial cost up to $25. Crrr*p.
Maybe there's a cheaper source of clear bags.
OK, quart size baggies just close, with a couple inches extra width, for 4 cards and envelopes. They're 7" x 8.5". Doable, but not ideal.
I can order zippered art bags on amazon.com that are 6" x 9". I think I like those dimensions better, and it's free shipping with $25 total order. I have a couple things on my waiting list that'll bring the order up.
Think I'll go with that. I got taken with Clear Bags. (It came is a cardboard envelope and that cost twice the price of the bags?)
