This is the first time I'll be sending anything out.  The first time I printed the wrapper because I was going to wrap the book along with buying the postage.  (I'm sorry..I'm not familiar with all the abbreviations yet).  Anyway, I tried to wrap the book, but it's like wrapping a present, which I have no talent for.  So I'm going to put my book in one of those bubble packages, but I still want to use the postage that I've already paid for.  What should I do?  Is it all right if I just cut and tape the postal thingie to the envelope?  (thingie...that's very descriptive, isn't it?LOL)

Sorry, if this is posted already on the forum but I went through two pages, and I didn't find an answer. 

Thank you...Liz

So, you purchased postage through PBS?  All you do then is tape the entire wrapper (you can cut off excess white on top and bottom of wrapper) to the bubble mailer.  That's what I usually do. 

Feel free to PM me (button is underneath my name) if you need help understanding anything else.  I'm a tour guide here, so I know all.  (hahaha - okay, I know a little, and what I don't know I can ask others about).

Welcome to PBS!

Hi Elizabeth,

Welcome to PBS!  As long as the extra wrapping doesn't put you to a higher amount of postage, you are just fine.  Put the book in the bubble mailer and then tape the wrapper to it.  You can trim it if you need to.

I use bubble mailers myself - and reuse them when I can!
