Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I'd go to another 1 too. Envelopes should only be 65 cents. If I wrap mine in the press and seal so they're real tight it's a regular stamp, but the price of that stuff is crazy. Saran wrap really mash out the air and when I took mine down to PO to check she said 45 but you're really safe at 65 cents. I know last boom I got alot of them on the 1st mailing with just a regular stamp on them. Who knows?? but she did tell me it came down to the clerks disgression. If I sent a manila out with just the basic F8 it's 85 cents I think. $1.10 is what it cost me for Canada

The people in my groups are going to get all hand-dyed jewel-tone fabrics. I can't show a picture yet, because I'm still making them. I'll only want black with them. Can you imagine black quilts with only bright patches?

Has anyone ever just sent a solid color to see what comes back?
Post Offices are funny. If I take mine to Fayette, Mo where I work its usually 45 to 65 cents on all the envelopes. BUT if I take them to Boonville, Mo where I live they want to charge 85 cents or more. Fayette is a small town and they take the time to work with people where Boonville thinks they are too busy to help Give me small towns anytime!
April, could you send instructions again on how to convert your file to be able to make labels? I cant find the instructions and I definately want to be able to print labels! Thanks!!
People may not remember what you looked like or what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel!
This is the link to my albums for all Boom swaps.

ArizonaKat- I think sending a solid color is a great idea. You would get a HUGE variety with your blocks, and you'd have the solid color to tie them all together.
