To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's really too bad, especially for me (I bought 500 of these envelops!) If your plans only include sending 1, or 2 sheets of paper within these envelops, you will be fine.
Although, both sides are held together by chewing gum (I think!) Both side come apart very easily if you put ANY SORT of pressure inside the envelope!!! This very thing has happened so many times to me already it isn't even a little funny!!!
Envelope itself is fine. The glue is not. As I lifted the protective strip, glue stretched up with the strip. Low quality glue and strip. I think it will be fine if you use up these envelopes quickly but I think the glue will dry up. Can't say how quickly but I was hoping to buy in bulk and use for several years. The glue width is also about 1/4" and the flap opened easily.
In my opinion the paper in these envelopes is to thin and not stiff enough..I question the 24lb spec listed. I have better self-sealing envelopes from my warehouse club for 30% less price. Not sure where all these 5 star reviews are from....I have ordered business supplies for over 40 years....I don't get it.
I've ordered these before, but it seems now I can no longer comfortably fit 5 sheets of paper in one envelope. I just threw one envelope away because the sides popped open. Will probably not order these again.
They print okay and the security is good. However, the seal strip is very narrow and does not stick well. I have to tape the envelopes because they will most likely open during transit. I will be looking for a different envelope when I use all of these or when I give out of tape.
