    Swap shipping?

    I just ordered some free flat rate legal size envelopes from USPS.com. Free shipping too. I was surprised at all the different flat rate sizes they had.

    But I was thinking about the envelopes you get that are like really tough plastic. Anybody know the name of them? Do they come in flat rate?

    Thinking these would be perfect for shipping for swaps.

    The free ones from the Post office are called Tyvek and are not Flat rate

    They come in Priority or Express shipping

    i got the postal clerk to give me one of their Tyvek envelopes to mail a blouse to my girl friend. the box i would have had to buy was way too much in cost. so she dug and found an envelope i could stuff it into.

    FRE's are the boxes: Small, med, and large and the reg size envelope, the legal size envelope and the padded envelope.. None are the tyveks...

    The post office does offer the following flat rate envelope-it is lined with bubble wrap to protect the contents-maybe that would work?

    Priority Mail Flat Rate Padded Envelope
