source to purchase seed envelopes

lakedallasmary(8 - North Central TX)April 29, 2006

I know you can print free seed envelopes, but the printer is broken. Plus all that gluing and taping.

I need an on-line source. I would like envelopes with pretty pictures on the them like the printable ones, not if not available,

then plain is ok.

also while we are taking about it, a good on-line source of small quatities of small bubble mailers, would help

I buy manila coin envelopes from Staples office supply store and I know they do on-line orders. I'm fortunate that we have one a couple miles from our home.

The envelopes come in different sizes...the smallest, which are about half the size of actual seed envelopes, work great for most seeds and for sharing seed with others. They sell them in boxes of about 250 if I remember correctly. Mine also were not self adhesive.

As far as labels...I print my own labels off the computer to put on the back side of the envelopes which helps to keep them closed should you get a batch with inadequate glue and adds a nice cosmetic touch to the finished product.

I'm sure there are a lot of other sources out there. I recommend doing a web search (Google or other). Hope this hhelps and good luck!

Seed Savers Exchange offers several types of envelopes; heat-seal foil for long-term storage, and self-sealing paper for seed swapping. The paper types come either blank, or pre-printed with generic info on many popular seeds (beans, radish, marigold, etc.). Link follows.

If you prefer similar blank envelopes, or are looking for bulk rates, you can also try Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, which carries both foil and paper in several types & quantities.

I have vintage seed envelopes in excellent condition, at least 25 years old, printed for "Allen, Sterling & Lothrop" of Falmouth Maine. I will never use them all so I'm selling them at 15 cents each envelope. They can be used for seeds or artistic endeavors (I've sold some to artists using them for mobiles and vegetable decor). Pictures can be seen at

Envelopes are for: Ageratum, Alyssum, Aster, Beans, Borage, Chrysanthemum, Cress, Cucumber, Delphinium, Endive, Fennel, Foxglove, Gypsophila, Lettuce, Marigold, Morning Glory, Pansy, Petunia, Popcorn, Poppy, Primrose, Radish, Salvia, Squash, Sunflower, Sweet William, Tomato, Zinnia
