Tips on mailing handmade cards by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.comIf you’ve experienced it, you know how disheartening it is to find a card you mailed, usually weeks later, returned to your mailbox. Much more than the expense and effort of sending it again, it’s upsetting that who it was meant for didn’t know you thought of them.  

Please keep in mind now that you’ve watched my tips on mailing handmade cards video, what is perfectly acceptable for virtually every post office doesn’t mean you will be free of issues at another. Due to my husband’s work, I’ve mailed handmade greeting cards from coast to coast and haven’t the same experiences as some of my stampers.
