Happy Valentine's Day, everyone.
Tomorrow, Feb. 15, all the stores selling racks of greeting cards will start purging excess, leftover envelopes.
A few will sell the envelopes for a penny apiece. Most will be throwing the envelopes out.
Ask. Ask. Ask! I get free piles each year.
Clubhouse attendants. Family members. Often, they'll sort or pile envelopes for anyone who gets a regular amount of fan mail.
Be different. Different is good. Different stands out.
You want your envelope opened. If it's opened, why not read the letter? Then, why not give the person the autographs they want or the answers to the questions they asked?
You can still use the standard white envelope for your SASE.
St. Patrick's Day cards have green envelopes. Easter cards have yellow or purple envelopes. No one wants the pink and red.
Trust me. It works.
