Default Anyone have any experience with sending a stack of "open when" envelopes?

Hello everyone,


does anyone have any experience with sending a stack of "open when" envelopes?
I really like this idea and I'd love to make and send some, but then it crossed my mind that all mail is opened. So, if I were to send a big envelope with a stack of regular evelopes in it (all propperly addressed to him), would it reach my guy? Or would he just get the content of those envelopes and would the entire idea got to waste?

I used computer paper and folded it in half like a card. Open when on the outside

That's a great idea, I hadn't thought of it like that . I know what I'll be making the next few nightshifts at work! Thank you!

I sent them in a manila envelope, so they didn't get all scrunched up. I cut off the metal piece. Not sure if you are allowed those envelopes though.

I don't know if I can get my hands on a manila envelope, but I'll definetly use one of those larger envelopes that I can fit a larger number of them in.

Yeah, I used to send these a lot. I would send 10-20 in a large envelope but I just wouldn’t seal and of the smaller envelopes. Never had any issue with them getting though. Only with the fact that he couldn’t control himself and opened them all at once! Haha!

As usual, when I have an idea, I'm going all overboard. I've been working all night and have the first batch of about 50 cards ready. Only +- 80 more to go
