Just got my order of these from the Post Office - they look great! They measure 9" x 12" INSIDE dimension. Paper on the outside, bubbles on the inside, and self seal closure. And they go at the same price as the non-padded FRE.
The small FR box costs more, but you can slip it into a padded envelope and pay less!! Those people at the PO are so smart.... :lol:

Note one little sneaky difference in pricing; postage for the regular and new legal-sized FRE's are $4.75 online and $4.95 at the post office.

For the padded ones, they're $4.95 no matter if you purchase postage online or at the PO.
