    I have created a visio with a box that can be cut out (once you print out this pdf on cardstock or just glue paper to a cardstock holder).

    I saw that they use a tool just like this in the post office to test our letters. If it doesn't fly through, they ask for more postage! It fails as a letter and needs Package rate postage (roughly double!).

    Many of us send blocks in the mail and I'm am so irritated at how many have come back to me lately.

    I hope this helps you! Let me know if there is a way to improve the instructions and I'll edit it with your input!

    Thanks, Jami

    Yeah same here. This will definitely be helpful as my local post office had told me maybe I can get it off thier site and well, nope. I mean if I had to pay for that thing I would have. What would it have hurt them to sell those things to people

    You can get 4 pieces of copy paper in one envelope without having to pay extra postage.
