O' Christmas card, O' Christmas card... lovely that you're finished!
This year I sent out 85+ Christmas cards. I ended up with two versions as I ran out of supplies for card #1. The cards were designed to fit in a #10 business envelope (4 1/8" x 9 1/2"). I found 100 of those envelopes at my local Len's Mills store for under $7 and they looked a lot like kraft paper. I would strongly suggest investing in an address stamp. Last year I had one made at a UPS store here in Woodstock for about $30. It's saves A LOT of handwriting and, the fact that it's self-inking, means I will have it for many, many more years to come.
