Being that it's the Christmas season and mail is going to be backing up, along with the announcement that the Post Office will be closing hubs making mail take even longer, I decided now would be the best time to play around with the mail, plus, if you wait a week or so, postage is bound to go up. So, in the past I have praised the SASE, such as in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=36989&hilit=SASE Additionally, I love stickers and today Justin from Porkchop linked me to this thread on BMX museum about companies that will send out stickers with an SASE: http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=344201 So I am going to try my best to keep you updated as to my results. First I acquired 40 legal sized envelopes from our file cabinet. Next, I dug in the junk drawer for all those free return address labels that different charities send you, and as I sat down watching Top Gear I stuck labels on envelopes. 2 per each SASE and 1 per each outer envelope, equaling a total of 60 return address labels. Second, I sat down with a pad of Post-it notes and wrote 20 notes "Could you please send me some stickers? Thanks. Justin" then I went to the computer and opened the link above using it to address 20 of the outer envelopes with the following companies: ( :!: indicates SASEs of stickers I have gotten back) -Vans Inc. :!: -Terrible One BMX :!: -Subrosa :!: -Ride BMX Magazine :!: -Kink Bike Co. :!: -Intense Tires :!: -Hoffman Bikes :!: -GT Bikes :!: -Felt BMX/Bikes :!: -Eastern Bikes :!: -East County BMX :!: -DK Bicycles :!: -Crank Brothers :!: -Bikefactory :!: -Archie's Ice Cream :!: -Answer BMX :!: -A&B Cycle -Diamondback -Sinz Racing :!: -Sunday Bikes :!: Now came the hard part, being low on stamps I took some of my bike money and went to the post office and purchased 40 stamps, totaling $17.60... ouch. After typing this I will place all the stamps and stuff the envelopes and give them to my mail carriers. As the results come in I will gauge whether or not all of this has been worth it. It takes a lot of time when you do many at a time, but today was my day off and I did the work while my son was at preschool, my older daughter was at school, and my younger daughter was napping. As for the money, we'll see, since I really like stickers, I do sometimes buy them, but for people who could care less about stickers this would be a complete waste of time and money. If sending off 20 envelopes were to net me a sticker each, that would be less than a buck each, which is a decent deal (depending on sticker quality). My prediction is that some of my SASEs will go AWOL, but that the ones I get back will net me greater than 20 stickers. We shall see as this all plays out. I plan to document the date of arrival for each as well as the contents. Starting date is today December 8th 2011, and my mail carrier will be here soon, so I best get to stuffing envelopes.
