How to avoid a small letter becoming a large letter. :>>

1)Iron the folded contents flat.

2)Once the paper/card is in the envelope, Use the iron again and iron it very flat.

3)If you haven’t got an iron handy and there’s no breakables or other issues, hammer the envelope.

4)Otherwise, prepare everything a day or two in advance of posting and spend some time sitting on the envelopes to flatten them.

5)When you are sure all your mail is slimline enough for the wafer thin Post Office measuring template, stick stamps on it and post.


  1. I don’t like ironing either….a steam roller might be a better bet for flattening envelopes. At least you could get to driving some interesting object with a purpose.
