View Full Version : Ack! My labels have been falling off!

As if the rejections weren't bad enough, this month I have also had returned to me two envelopes from which my mailing labels had come off! These were queries to agents who had asked to be queried with sample chapters.

The envelopes are "Jiffy Padded #5 Mailers by Sealed Air." They are heavy brown paper, like old-fashioned grocery bags, only thicker. If you are using these, I'd advise covering your address label with clear package sealing tape.

Thanks for the heads-up. I don't use them, but I bet some people here do, and you've just saved them some trouble.

The Canadian post office has plastic bubble pack envelopes. I use them and use sharpie to write everything on. But Maryn's right...you probably saved someone some grief. Great heads up.
