Lack of Supplies
In over 40 years I never had this issue before. I have been ordering 3x5 Manilla stock cards for that long to store stamps as well as using them in the last 10 years to ship stamps. These cards fit nicely into a size 5 Glassine and then into a small white envelope for shipping. For the past month or so - I have not been able to get a hold of anymore of these cards. My normal suppliers have been out - so I placed an order last Friday with Subway - surely they would have them. Well just got a notice from them too - they are back ordered. No idea of how long they will not be available. I just did a search for them and every supplier shows them as out of stock. Does anyone have a good suggestion on a substitute way of sending out stamps that are purchased. This may be "my final nail in the coffin" for selling stamps. I like to keep the shipments in small envelopes and I am not sure of another way to do it that is not too costly.
