If you’ve seen my posts on Craft Owl Blog then you will know I make my own envelopes and I like sending letters.
I wasn’t sure if Royal Mail had any guidelines regarding patterns on envelopes, so I sent them a tweet.
They responded quickly with this handy link:
I was pleased to find out that it is perfectly acceptable to send my handmade envelopes in the post! I just have to make sure that the address is written in black ink on a white background (a sticky label would be fine) and in the correct format.
I had been putting my envelopes inside a white envelope before posting them. Seems a shame to hide them if I don’t need to though, right?
Let me know in the comments if you are a fan of old fashioned letters, and especially if you are pen pals with anyone.
Thank you for visiting!
