sista pammy moondrops posted a few days back with a great idea that i've taken to using:

Instead of enclosing your return envelope in a larger envelope, why not just tape the smaller envelope closed (including return postage and label inside along with the disc's) - and mark "Please Reuse"....this cuts down on paper, etc.....

It was also mentioned that the person making the B&P offer is in charge of what the rules are for that transaction. So if they tell you not to send a recylable envelope, then don't - this has never happened to me though it has been brought up.

Also, it is of the UTMOST importance to notify your benefactor what they are supposed to be burning for you (most of us might know, but it just makes it a bit easier on the person burning so they don't have to backtrack).

Oh, and when you get enough music to start making your own B&P offers, i think that it is a nice idea to include who you are when you mail back the burned disks.....i've gotten about 30 envelopes back with music i have no idea where it came from (YES YES I know, i did send them the envelopes, but don't have the time to keep track).......

Thats my .02 cents.

In no time at all you'll have a great collection as long as you are courteous and slightly professional about everything. Peach out! WORD.

One word of caution here. I got my first "reuse" B&P this week. The sender took off the paper cover for the adhesive on the flap. The glue on this particular brand was so strong, it wouldn't open without ripping off the flap. Had the sender taped the mailer, all would have been well. I ended up taping the hell out of the flap to seal the hole. This was a Gould brand mailer, just like what I get at Dollar tree, 3 for a buck. The glue on these is worth a buck on its own.

It's nice to be enviornmentally aware, but if you do 3 or 4 B&P's a month for 10 people, to burn and stuff is enough. I will do it either way, but do prefer a package that is ready to mail, but do send all in one to certain traders who I know don't mind.

that just stinks. i don't think that the offerer should have to do that. The sender musta been stoned; how the hell did they expect you to reuse it. that's just rude.

it wasnt me was it Ron? LOL

I prefer recycled B&P's. I try to whenever I can both for simplicity and paper saving. In regards to what Ron said, I like to take a good pair of scissors and cut the side of the mailor open, bypassing the glued flap entirely. Then Ill just take some heavy duty clear or brown packing tape, tape it closed making sure its secured and send it on its way. If the next person chooses to recycle the mailor again for a trade, the tape is easity cut not damaging the mailor and can be retaped easily. Everyone should always recycle mailors.

I have no problem with re-using mailers, I have some that I have used5 or 6 times. I have sent clay the same envelope 3 or 4 times, twice back to me on the same 60 cent stamp.
It's just a matter of addressing, stamping, and sealing with no errors.(with a good buzz that's hard to do anyway)
